Visit the biggest snow castle in the world on this day trip to Kemi and enjoy a delicious lunch in a restaurant made of ice. You'll be captivated by the incredible fairytale setting. What are you waiting for?


After being picked up from your hotel in Rovaniemi, you'll head southwest in the direction of the port town of Kemi, located on the Bothnian Bay.

Having arrived in the town, you'll be taken straight to the famous snow castle. The massive fortress is rebuilt each January by local designers and artists. With an area that has reached up to 5 acres (20,000 square metres), and towers having been built over 65 feet (20 m) in height, this is the largest snow fort in the world. Inside, you'll visit the many different rooms that make up the castle, which is carved in different architectural styles every year. Explore the iconic chapel, to which people travel from all over the world to get married.

You'll have the opportunity to see some of the different hotel rooms and visit the art gallery, filled with elaborate ice sculptures reminiscent of a dream world. At the end of your visit, enjoy a delicious lunch of typical dishes from Lapland in the castle's ice restaurant. An extraordinary experience!

Kemi isn't only built of ice and snow, and this tour will also take you to visit some of the more permanent landmarks in the town. Visit the beautiful rose-tinted Lutheran Church and stroll alongside the mouth of the River Kemijoki, Finland's longest river. Kemi is also home to the Sampo Arctic Icebreaker, an enormous vessel that kept shipping lanes free in the area's harsh winters for almost thirty years.

Following your fascinating tour of Kemi, you'll be taken back to your hotel in Rovaniemi.
