Try an unforgettable ride in a Hovercraft! Over breaking ice or snow, we head for the empty archipelago deep frozen. A walk on the frozen sea is a unique experience. Or why not try how it feels floating around among ice rafts wearing a survival suit staying completely warm and dry, a once in a lifetime experience! Camp fire lunch and a nature walk is a perfect end to a perfect day outdoors. Transfer Helsinki City / Airport included.

This was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. Sitting in the hovercraft flying over the North Sea, a huge ferry breaking the ice on its way to Estonia , simply breathtaking. My heart would skip a beat each time we crossed from ice to water – my mind convinced we

They were very accommodating and met us at the airport since we only had 1 day in town. We didn't get to take the hovercraft because it was to windy but took the boat out to the islands to hike and had a great lunch. It was so peaceful out in the archipelago. We did the

Hope you got a good introduction to the archipelago life and to the finnish soul life of the sauna too! And yes, the water is now as cold as it gets. But main thing it stays outside the protective suit :) Thanks for coming! -Leif

Thanks for the great review and for coming out with us! We are glad you enjoyed the day and the experiences out in "the wilderness" . Welcome back in the summer too. Then the water is slightly warmer. -Leif
