During the winter time you can participate on a cruise onboard the famous Icebreaker Sampo, You can reach the Sampo from the town of Kemi by snowmobile on the frozen Gulf of Bothnia.

Kemi is the home to the world’s largest Snow Castle, which is built every year with a different design.

Kemi offers accommodation in two special places: an overnight stay in a warm sleeping bag at the Snow Castle Hotel or an overnight stay at a Seaside Glass Villa where, with a little luck, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern lights.

In the summer time you can enjoy the warm summer breeze from the sea by paddling or by taking a cruise on a beautiful sailing boat. The midnight sun at Midsummer is also a very unique experience. At a golf center in Tornio, not far from Kemi, you can play midnight golf on a golf course in two countries, Finland and Sweden. Get inspired, get re-energized, get active and enjoy the summer in Kemi.
