Breaking the Ice

Kukkolaforsen offers a 5-hour arctic experience with the Polar Explorer Icebreaker including an icy water swim, an effortless floating adventure in a dry survival suit. Enjoy a 3-hour icy cruise in the frozen water of the Bothnian Sea in Lapland. During the 3-hour cruise, you will witness the massive ice-breaking power of the vessel, and have a guided tour all the way down to the engine rooms and up to the Captain’s bridge.

Audio-tour and certificate

The tour is available in 16 languages via an audio guide application and includes an 11-minute movie in the icebreaker cinema about icebreakers all over the world. You can relax in the cozy saloon, enjoying warm juice, or go for a walk on the frozen sea ice during the stop. The icebreaker makes a pool free of ice and every visitor can take a swim in the dark icy water in a flotation survival suit. The captain will present a Cruise & Swim Certificate to everyone as a memorable gift.
