Thanks for replying. I am planning on buying scanrail pass, and with it I am able to get Veljekset Salmela's buses service free of charge. How frequent are the buses linking these 3 cities and is there any timetable available?

Icehotel and Icebreaker Sampo in Kemi

by gubbi1

This Easter Sunday I visited the ice-hotel in Kemi to have a look. I did not intend to stay there overnight, but I was not sure how long it will remain, so this was more or less a visit not to miss it. It did not take long to find it after asking once, it is located downtown at the harbour. There are even signs posted for the 'Lumilinna' as it is called here in Kemi, but somehow I once did not take care while driving, so I got lost. The icehotel can be visted also by 'daytourists', which costs 7 Euros. You can go inside and even the rooms are open to be looked at. It my opinion it is pretty fresh inside (if I may call it so), but I read on the webpage, that they hand out very good sleepingbags.
Walking around in the rooms is nice, but the atmosphere with the lights in the ice is pretty impressive. I enjoyed it there, but staying overnight surely has a much deeper impression on people.
From the icehotel I could see a long chain of people on the frozen sea disappearing at the horizont. There has been a cross-country track prepared, actually there was a complete set of different tracks on the frozen surface. One track had a path for walking people beside, so I decided to spent another afternoon on the sea. I wonder how long this will last, it is almost april and still I haven't seen floating seawater since I arrived here in mid of February. And I guess that's the reason why air is so dry up here. Very curious about how this will go on...

Now in June I have been back to Kemi with my brother who had been here for a visit. As in summer the icehotel is of course gone, we visited the icebreaker 'Sampo' instead. During the summer it has 'holidays' and stays in the harbour where people can come to have a look at it. Inside you can drink a coffee or just have a look at the interior. It is allowed to go up into the bridge where normally the captain is doing his job.

Here some facts about the Sampo according to a flyer which you can get there onboard:
Build in 1960 in Helsinki
Length: 75,68 m
Width: 17,40 m
Ice class: 1 A Super
Height of bridge over waterline: 14 m
Speed in open water: 16 kn
Speed in ice of 50 cm thickness: 6 - 8 kn
Possible icethickness: 80 - 120 cm
Overall Power of main machines (4 pcs): 8800 hp
Sampo was used almost 30 years.

During winter time you can make trips with the Sampo into the massive ice on the sea.
The Sampo can be found in the Ajo harbour of Kemi.
For the tour operations have a look at the Sampo Tour pages.

During the visit of my parents I came back here to show them the Sampo and this time we had the chance to get down into the mashine room. This was pretty impressive as I haven't had much the chance to get so deep inside a ship. The mashine room is a pretty large labyrinth of engines, instruments and pipes. Hard to believe someone has an overview over all this... Have a look at the additional tavelogue below in which I have some of the photos from deep inside the Sampo.

Kemi - Where Ice is turism

by akkipaa

"The northest harbour town"

Kemi is known in Finland of two things: Museum icebreaker Sampo and Snowcastle which, of course, must be build again and again.

And lighthouses are important statues to all who love sea and travelling. This one is Kemi 1, it is build on 1975. The light level of Kemi One is 25 meters and the range is 10,2 nM.

Small hike on oceans surface

by gubbi1

Well, seems to me that I start to have special relationship to different methods to get on islands. After hiking on oceans ground (see island Neuwerk in my Germany section) and my drive on the iceroad to Hailuoto last week, now a small hike to an island in front of Kemi to have a coffee...
See whats coming netxt ... ;)

Access to the path, which follows directly the crosscountry track, is just behind the snow castle Lumilinna. Of course, I think it is not neccessary to mention, don't walk on the ice if it is not safe!!! During my visit there was almost a pilgrim going on... well it was Eastern ;))) No, but seriously, even here it happens that people drown when walking the ice, but often this happens in connection with alcohol.

But now to the fun stuff! I started after visiting the ice hotel. First I was thinking of going by skies, which are always in my car, but then decided to go by foot. On my way I saw a sign posted on the ice leading to a very small island on which somebody sold hot drinks. He was a bit overwhelmed by the many people coming that day, so he forgot me at first, but then I got my coffee. Anyway it was a great time there as the sun starts to heat up now and time seems counted until it will not be possible anymore to do such hikes on the ice.
