The tour begins with a guided minibus tranfer from your hotel which will take you out onto the ice roads. On the way the guide will talk about Luleå and the archipelago and after about 20 minutes in total you’ll meet with the hovercraft. After a briefing and go-through of equipment the journey towards the pack-ice fields outside the archipelago begins.

If conditions for pack-ice are not ideal then the islands of Kluntarna and Brändöskär with small idealic fishing-villages will be visited instead.
