Polar Explorer is the largest tourist breaker in the Baltic Sea. With its 78 meters in length and close to 10,000 horsepower in the main machines, we head out into the frozen sea, from the home port of Axelsvik. During the tour, you can visit all seven decks on the icebreaker, watch icebreaker movies in the cinema, hike on ice and take a swim in the frozen sea – of course wearing a survival suit. The icebreaker trip brings memories for life and you get many fantastic photo opportunities.

What is included?
Warm clothes (overalls, shoes, gloves and hat) are included for participants who live at Filipsborg. For accommodation in other hotels, you can rent this equipment at Filipsborg.

What do I need to bring with me?
Wear one or two (recommended) layers of warm underwear. Layer 1 against the body and an intermediate layer (Layer 2) that insulates. The weather protection layer 3 is usually ski clothing or snowmobile overalls.
