Booked on this website, i am satisfied. can't put into words how amazing this tour was. The icy waters, the breathtaking views, and the cool experience of the Ice Breaker – it was all just mind-blowing. The SnowCastle area was a perfect finish to the day. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat

We've traveled the world, but the Ice Breaker Sampo cruise was something unique. The ice floating was an absolute highlight. We even got to meet the captain and the crew! The only thing we wished for was a longer time at the SnowCastle area. Definitely recommend it!

The Ice Breaker Sampo cruise was a once-in-a-lifetime experience

An absolute Arctic adventure! The Ice Breaker Sampo cruise was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From witnessing the incredible Arctic sunrise to floating on icy waters, every moment was surreal. The tour guides were informative, and the history of the vessel was fascinating. I'll cherish this memory forever

The ship tour is enjoyable, and the film about the development of icebreakers is informative.

The Ice Break cruise was relaxing and enjoyable. During the cruise, it is fascinating to watch and capture on film how the thick ice cracks and reveals the ocean underneath. sailing The ship tour is enjoyable, and the film about the development of icebreakers is informative. Swimming in the buoyancy suit and the cold water is an amazing experience. The resulting hot beverage was delicious. The prospect of stepping foot on the ice floating out there in the middle of the ocean appealed to me greatly. Thanks Lestacworld for organising Ince breaker tour for us in Finland

Despite my having a copy of their confirmation email outlining the cancellation requirements in writing, they are only refunding me 20%. It was also fine to charge a 20% cancellation fee.

I agree to the cancellation policy and have purchased a Flexible Ticket. The Swedish government has banned all but essential travel to Sweden from nations outside the European Union due to the Covid-19 virus. Because of the cancellation policy,Despite my having a copy of their confirmation email outlining the cancellation requirements in writing, they are only refunding me 20%. It was also fine to charge a 20% cancellation fee.So that I may pursue my legal remedies, I have filed a complaint with the Finnish Consumer Agency.

Initially, we were hesitant to reserve this tour, but now we’re glad we did. Everything about it was excellent. We had an early morning pickup from Rovaniemi. Both the guide and the driver did a fantastic job and were a huge assistance. We had lunch in Sweden and made it to the Polar Explorer in good time for departure. Yes, we did go with the VIP treatment (which I highly recommend). Since we had upgraded, Patrycja, our guide, was exclusively ours. She totally rocked! She led us to a separate room with a fireplace, a kitchenette, and a bar stocked with alcoholic beverages. Absolutely delicious cookies! The ship was ours for a private tour, and Patrycia filled us in on its history and purpose along the way. The swimming portion was the most enjoyable. We got to go in first and swim for over 20 minutes. Our pictures were taken by a professional and we paid 15 euros for the privilege. I would suggest this tour to anyone. I can’t sing the praises of the experience and the staff members who labored so hard to make it wonderful enough!

To witness and hear the sound of the thick sheets of ice broken down like a piece of wood was breathtaking.

Amazing Experience and worth of every penny spent for this tour. Well Organised , good crew members, Guide was from their own organization and he was damn good with his soft skills. Starts early at 7am and finished by 5:30 pm with pick up and drop faculty. The Ice floating experience is awesome. To witness and hear the sound of the thick sheets of ice broken down like a piece of wood was breathtaking. You can opt to buy your pictures and have good small Cinema that shows the document about history of Ice breakers. Towards the end of the journey the buffet lunch is good to have at the Swedish side and witness to the other side of same village on Finnish side separate by river.

The trip was as enjoyable for our family as we had imagined in late December.

Others with similar ratings agreed that this was a unique experience. The trip was as enjoyable for our family as we had imagined in late December. Everything, from the first reservation to the bus transportation upgrades afterwards, to the excursion and lunch, was largely easy and fun. The only unpleasant surprise was that, despite the sign at the train station indicating open from 5:45am, the small train station at Kemi where Polar Explorer reservation staff advised us to disembark from the Santa Clause night train (Helsinki-Rovaniemi) in order to catch their bus pick-up was closed at least early in the morning when we arrived at 6am. Our family was left outside in the chilly, snowy weather for two hours until the excellent cafe next door opened at eight in the morning because the bus pick-up time at Kemi was set for eight thirty. The café employee informed us that the train station is frequently closed in the winter. The earlier advise to disembark at Kemi station was made since the Santa Clause night train to Rovaniemi would arrive 10 minutes after the arranged bus pickup time. If we had realized Kemi station was closed, we would have scheduled the tour to leave Rovaniemi on a different day.
