On Saturday there will be an early morning (pre breakfast swim) then a trek/swim route, finishsing with a longer swim, Sunday will be a a trek/swim route.
To give you an understanding of what we mean on the trek days an example follows: Meet at car park x and we will walk along mountain paths to the first plunge stop for a quick refreshing dip (includes short rough scramble). Continue walk gaining height to reach large mountain tarn for longer swim (with/without wetsuit). Walk back taking opportunity to take third dip of the day in another remote mountain pool. Walk back to car park. Route length 10km assent 600m. This will be the hardest type of route.
On the two trek days we will include a drink and snack after. You will need to carry your own gear including some light refreshments. Treks will take around 4-6 hours Saturday, with 3-4 Sunday including swims.
All swims are weather dependant and can change, the swim trip is non-refundable & non-transferable, but if we have to cancel all or some of the swims for any reason, you will receive a Full/Pro Rata Refund. (No refunds if people cannot travel).
