Let’s go wild swimming in Windermere!


The 1500m distance swim is suitable for newbie open water swimmers or those wanting to swim a shorter distance, whereas the 3km swim incorporates an extra out & back loop & double the distance. This is swim with a difference with different depths along the way, beautiful scenery and wildlife and has been described as a “truely unique swim”. After trialing our one way swim last year, we had great feedback with swimmers enjoying the A to B swim & beautiful meadow walk back to the start.
The Windermere “Wild” Swim is a lake/river swim starting at Fell Foot, Windermere with the different distances, It is a beautiful swim and you get a chance to enjoy the beautiful views of the South Lakes with Gummers How fell in the distance & the beautiful Fell Foot park.
Non wetsuits swimmers allowed providing the water is 14 degrees. Decision to be posted a day before event date.
