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.
