Authentic icebreker day cruise
Experience life aboard a real icebreaker Viscaria is an icebreaking tugboat that can break 1 metre of congelation ice at a speed of 2 knots. She is in active service, assisting ships in Luleå’s harbour 365 days a year. Three crewmen live and work on board. You get to participate in their everyday activities, from starting up the engines to casting off from the quay to carry out the missions of the day. You will get a glimpse of operations at Luleå Harbour and if you are in luck, you might get to participate in assisting a ship.
During the three hour tour you will be served a light meal, with hors d’oeuvres and delicacies from the Swedish Lapland kitchen, as well as an “icebreaker” sandwich. With this, you will
be served hot beverages and a glass of sparkling sea-buckthorn cordial. Everything is included in the price.
During the tour, you can go out on deck to really feel the force of the ship as it pushes through the ice. Participants will also be given the opportunity to go out and walk on the ice, take pictures and swim amongst the floes of ice in the Gulf of Bothnia, wearing a survival suit.
