Wild Swim Weekend

Event Date: 11/06/21 - 13/06/21

Perfect for both complete beginners and more experienced wild swimmers, this two-night experience will introduce you to some of the most stunning open-water swimming spots in North Wales...

Our Wild Swim Weekend is the ultimate mix of personal challenge, outdoor exhilaration and deep relaxation. You'll get to experience the thrill of cold water swimming in arguably the most picturesque lakes and rivers in the world with our team of experts, and then enjoy the afterglow and deep sense of calm that follows from the luxury of our secluded glamping site, ideally with a good book in a hammock!

You'll also get the chance to try stand up paddle-boarding and explore some stunning walking and running routes in the local area, if the mood takes you...

You'll sleep under the stars in one of our roomy bell tents, with real beds, cosy duvets and lots of blankets, plus hot showers to warm you up after your swims We'll cook you lots of wholesome, tasty meals and there will be plenty of opportunity to pick the brains of our expert swimming guides, who will spend the whole weekend with us and share their words of wisdom around the campfire.

No experience of wild swimming is necessary as we will teach you all the basics. You don't even need any specialist equipment - just a swimming costume and a towel, but if you prefer to use a wetsuit you are welcome to bring these along too!

Places are limited to 10 people and this weekend is suitable for over 18s only.

We are running this course on the 11th - 13th June and from the 30th Aug - 1st Sep.

Price: £475 per person, including all meals, accommodation, tuition and equipment.
