About the event
Join me for a woodland adventure and wild swim. Starting with a warm up walk we will dip in a hidden tarn before slowly descending on forest trails. In the quiet woods we might see all kinds of wildlife including red squirrels, buzzards and deer.
The swim is ideally suited to breaststroke swimmers and will be led at a gentle pace. You should be reasonably fit to take part, the length of the walk is 4k and begins with a short, steep but not difficult climb on rock steps and unmade paths. We return via a gentler route on forest tracks. The swim is not suitable for beginners and you should be confident swimming out of your depth.
Experienced skins swimmers are welcome.
Equipment hire is available with prior notice.
Friends and family are welcome to join us for the walk, and to watch the swim.
Walkers only £5 each. Dogs are welcome.
Places must be booked in advance and you will be sent a confirmation email along with payment details.
This session is also available to book as a private experience.
