2 in stock
Join Dip Advisor for an introduction to cold water swimming with the added benefits of sauna.
Sauna isn’t for special occasions in Finland: it is a way of life. Thanks to the Finnish sauna culture being embraced across the UK there are now a variety of waterside saunas to complement your chilly dips this winter. The Saltwater Sauna is a recent addition to the British sauna community and sits on the promenade along the beautiful Sandbanks beach in Dorset.
The Winter Zinger Swim Sessions are designed to be a short intro to winter swimming. The swims will be a simple dip, a body immersion or a brief swim depending on how you handle the cold. Designed for a small group, risks and guidance will be outlined before you are encouraged into the water and monitored by the Dip Advisor. These swims will vary depending on temperature of the water, experience of the group and weather conditions. We will have the Sauna to slip in and out of to warm up, or to feel the benefit of the hot and cold therapy sauna can offer.
The sauna will be exclusively set up for Dip Advisor for this session.
Once dry and dressed, warm porridge and hot drinks will be provided.
Winter is a unique time to swim, it offers natural highs, community spirit and a zing that will stay with you all day. Morning swims, designed to be about sharing the joy of the water. Expect chatter & laughter.
