Welcome to our Arctic Ice-breaker safari in Piteå archipelago!
Listen to the sound of the ice blocks being crushed against the hull of the boat. Experience what it feels to break up 70 cm of compact ice. Challenge the laws of nature under safe and comfortable conditions on the Artic Explorer. In this experience participants have the opportunity take a walk on the ice or, for the adventurous, to swim among the ice floes in a survival suit. This suit will keep you completely isolated and dry from the freezing water.
The Icebreaker safari is a two-hour cruise for everyone! You can stand on the hull and watch the snow- and ice-covered landscape, visit the machine room or say hello to the Captain at the Captain´s bridge. Hot beverages and light snacks are available for purchase on the ship. The Artic Explorer Icebreaker Cruise’s departure terminal is located just 14 kilometers outside Piteå, an easy 15 minutes’ drive from the city center. Make this your quintessential iceexperience when visiting Swedish Lapland!
