What people are saying about Rovaniemi

It was a perfect day. I got picked up on time at Rovaniemi train station. The drive to the port was calm and relaxing. I loved being able to explore all areas of the ship. Swimming in the sea was an incredible and unique experience. Swimming will never be the same again

It is a truly unique experience and if you download the audio guide in advance, it is also a very interesting one. Had a guide who was very friendly. He spoke several languages, including German. The food was on the Swedish side and was excellent.

Experience was awesome on the cruise, meet the captain and floating on the sea

Great experience and well organised although a little pricey

Professional team who well organised the activity!
