Family Short Break in Kemi: reindeer and icebreaker

Family Short Break in Kemi: reindeer and icebreaker

Icebreaker Sampo  used to belong to the state of Finland and was used for 30 year to break ice in the Gulf of Bothnia, which makes it part of the history of Arctic seafaring. Today it takes visitors to see the open, Arctic sea-scenery. During the cruise you will get to know the icebreaker from the engine room to the bridge.

After the lunch it is possible to step down on the ice and try swimming in the cold sea in a comfortable survival suit. After arrival the captain will give every visitor a certificate of participation.

At Reindeer Farm Arkadia you get to meet the reindeers and go on a reindeer safari. You travel through the snowy winter forest where you can lay back and relax in a real reindeer sled and enjoy the fresh air and beauty of the nature. Lunch will be prepared in a traditional shaped Lappish hut.

Kemi SnowCastle  is the first snow castle in Finland. You cannot say it is the original one as this real snow castle must be built yearly. In year 2017 they will build their 22nd snow castle. Kemi SnowCastle is situated within walking distance from local hotels and railway station.
