At SISC, we currently hold courses at three main locations – Haga Health Club at the Radisson Blu Royal Park Hotel (Frösundaviks allé 15, 169 70 Solna), as well as Vattenhuset pool (Bockholmsvägen 1, 170 78 Solna). We typically hold our Beginners and Continuation courses at these pools (shallow warm pools that are great for beginners and those who don’t feel confident yet in the water). We also have Continuation and Front Crawl courses at bigger pools (25m or 50 m).
For all of our courses, the coaches will always meet you at the pool deck. Here are detailed instructions as to how to get there using public transportation and how you can find the pool once you arrive at these addresses:
Haga Health Club Spa Pool
Haga Health Club website: https://hagahc.se/
Address: Frösundaviks allé 15, 169 70 Solna
Take bus 67 towards Frösundavik and get off at the last stop. The bus stop is directly outside the main entrance to the hotel.
Once you have entered through the hotel’s main entrance, you can immediately turn right and go down the stairs, following the signs for Haga Health Club. This will bring you to the health club reception, where you can purchase your entrance to the pool (if the entrance fee is not included in the price of the course).
The hotel staff will be more than happy to help direct you to the pool, which is direct to the left of the entrance to the Haga Health Club. The locker rooms are right down the hall.
Note: Haga Health Club provides locks for the lockers and shower gel/shampoo, but you need to bring your own towels.

Adress: Bockholmsvägen 1, 170 78 Solna.
Travel to Bergshamra pool:
From T-Central, take Metro red-line heading North to Mörby, and exit at Bergshamra Centrum (Nthrn exit). Take the 503 heading South for 3 stops to Himlabacken. Alternatively, you can walk from the southern exit of Bergshamra C to Himlabacken, along Gamla Vägen. Approximately 10 minutes, possibly quicker than bus.
At Himlabacken, the Bergshamra “Simskola & Babysim” multi-story building should be immediately visible. When inside the building, locate the ground-floor elevators which will take you up to the correct floor after which you will need a short walk (1-2 mins) through the center to find Vattenhuset. Google estimates the total travel time as approx 20 mins.
Note: don’t forget to bring your own shower necessities for this pool. The lockers at Bergshamra require your own lock.
