Winter Swimming in Sweden

Do you know how to swim? Are you looking for a new experience in Sweden? We have a nice idea for you! Winter swimming can be super exciting challenge full of fun.

Health Benefits of Winter Swimming

Health benefits of winter swimming have been scientifically proven. This activity increases feel-good hormones, reduces stress and improves sleep (unless you have heart or blood circulation problems, which means swimming in ice-cold water should be avoided).

Cold water causes constriction of the blood vessels, which allows your body to retain heat, and the blood pressure increases to avoid cooling down. In the process to protect the body, hormones such as endorphins are released and act as a pain relief (as well as an antidepressant) for a few hours. As a result, winter bathers are known to lead more active lives and are generally happier and more fulfilled than other people.

Water safety

The Water Safety Code consists of four simple rules to remember each time you venture near the water.

“Buddy up!”

That’s what swimming instructors say. Always swim with a partner, every time — whether you’re swimming in a backyard pool or in a lake. Even experienced swimmers can become tired or get muscle cramps, which might make it difficult to get out of the water. When people swim together, they can help each other or go for help in case of an emergency.

How to Assemble Swedish Swim Goggles Malmsten

Swedish goggles are a classic and popular type of swimming goggles worn by many competitive swimmers. The original Swedish goggles were produced by the Swedish company Malmsten AB and were first designed in the 1970s. Swedish goggles influenced many other goggle designs and generic Swedish goggles are widely available. Malmsten claims that Swedish goggles are “probably the worlds most copied swim goggles.”

Swedish goggles are notable for a lack of a gasket or seal around the eye cup, as found on most other goggles. They come in various colors including clear, black, blue, green, red, amber, pink, silver metallic and bronze metallic. Swedish goggles are relatively low cost, with basic goggles costing less then 100 SEK retail and metallic goggle costing less then 200 SEK.

Much of the popularity of Swedish goggles is due to their customizable fit. The goggles are sold unassembled, with each goggle set including a pair of eye cups, one long (around 36″) latex rubber strip, and a nose piece consisting of string that fits inside a plastic or rubber tube. Swimmers may choose a single or double head strap, and some choose to cut a small piece of latex from the head strap for use as a nose piece.
