SUITABLE FOR INTERMEDIATES

Indulge yourself in a 4 night Hebridean swim tour with local experienced swim guides and coaches based in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis. Staying in a 3 star bed & breakfast in Stornoway you will be centrally based for all swim locations around Lewis & Harris.

 

Distances covered will be according to your acclimatisation to these temperatures but the focus will be more on getting in as many spectacular Hebridean swims in as possible during your 4 night/5 day stay. This is a cold water swimming holiday and temperatures will range from 11-14 degrees Celsius. It's not suitable for novice open water swimmers. 

 

Your personal safety and that of the group is paramount, so you will have at least 2 swim guides present at all swims plus boat safety on our island adventures. Take plenty swimsuits/shorts and a warm robe!

 

This is an active holiday and will require a degree of fitness in getting on and off boats at beaches (beach landings). Some of the paths to the beaches are steep. Please contact us for further information if you have any mobility issues.

 

The tour starts 10am Monday and ends 10am Friday.
