Sampo Ice Breaker & Ice Swimming

DURATION: 13:00-17:00 HOURS
This incredible experience includes a guided tour of the ship with its massive engine room, communications room and bridge, ice swimming and a three course meal at the on-board restaurant. In the middle of the largest ice field in Europe, you have the opportunity to jump in the sea and float! You will of course be fitted with a warm survival suit and those who dare will also be presented with a certificate by the ship authorities. An unforgettable experience. Return to Rovaniemi with early evening arrival at your hotel.

Dora, Many thanks for your superb organization and planning of our trip to Scandinavia in July. The balance between travel, tours, and rest periods was just right. We adjusted to the jet lag pretty quickly, which I was so happy about! All of the hotels were perfectly located which enabled us to get up early (I’m always up by 4:30 or 5:00), explore our surroundings for a bit, and then meet back at the hotel to eat breakfast before getting picked up for the day tour. We had only one issue with the hotel in Copenhagen; they accidentally gave us a handicap room which made things a bit strange, especially in the bathroom. We informed our guide though and they got it straightened out and switched us to a different room. Cab pickups were all on time and your careful planning helped us make sure we were not rushed to make any connections. If I was making a recommendation of a 'must do' thing for anyone visiting Scandinavia, then the Flam railway would definitely be at the top of the list. I can see how this trip could be a bit of a disappointment if the weather turned foul and all that was visible was rain and clouds, so I’m thankful we had perfect weather. I don’t know how you organized for such nice weather, but we appreciated it! ;) I would be pleased to recommend Nordic Saga Tours to anyone hoping to visit Scandinavia. Thank you again, Dora. We both appreciated your guidance. Ted Quinn and Herman Groll
