This arctic Helsinki day trip starts with a pickup by car or minibus in the morning at your hotel in Helsinki City, at the airport or other agreed pick up point. After a 30min drive we reach our Hovercraft departure pier. Here you will be provided with warm clothing for the day and safety equipment together with a short safety briefing: A whole body floatation suit, life west, winter gloves, hat and winter boots. You can come on the trip with normal street wear winter clothing, we provide you with everything you need for the trip. The Hovercraft can take up to 5 passengers and has a heated cabin. You will be accompanied by 2 experienced REDRIB crew members and guides during the whole trip (1 crew member on board if 5 passengers.)

We leave with the Hovercraft for a drive through the archipelago winter landscape. Empty, deep frozen and beautiful, we travel between the islands over ice, breaking ice and open water on our way to an empty island. You will see summer cottages, beautiful landscapes and maybe a seal or an eagle or other animals staying out over the winter. We can stop on the way on the thick and solid ice for pictures to have a walk and listen to the complete silence.
After the drive we reach our base camp island. Here we serve a warm non-alcoholic welcome drink as we prepare for a walk around the island.
You will be guided along a typical archipelago nature trail, hear the stories about summer cottages and saunas, the birth of the archipelago after the Ice Age and the daily life in the archipelago.
After the nature trail walk you can try out a unique experience floating around between ice rafts in a survival suit, staying completely warm and dry. We have a heated cabin ready for the change into these special suits used in commercial shipping. The suits are well insulated to keep you perfectly warm and dry during the whole swim. There are dry toilets available on this outdoor island.
The swim is, of course, completely voluntary and you can also stay ashore taking great pictures of the other swimmers.
Along with you in the water is one of REDRIB:s experienced instructor assisting you the whole time while a second supervising acts as a safety officer on the shore side. You can stay as long as you want in the water, a typical duration for the swim is 15-45 min.
The water temperature will be +3C degrees also when the air temperature is way below zero.
After the swim you change back to the warm floatation suit and
we head for the open camp fire lunch. At the camp fire there is
seating, a roof protection and big windows giving protection from the wind and the elements of nature, still providing a beautiful
scenery to the sea. This is a wind and rain protected outdoor location.
A light Taste of Finland -lunch consisting of a snack starter, a warm soup or barbecue and coffee or tea as dessert is being served.
The drive back to the main land will take around 20min.
From the departure pier we reach the center of Helsinki in 30 min.
On the way you get tips on what to do in Helsinki! We can drop you off at any Helsinki city location, your hotel or the airport.
