The swim is run in the tradition of Pagan festivals and celebrates the Pagan rituals of the past. The water temperature is usually close to 10 degrees, but there is a lovely warm pool (38 degrees) and a steam room to warm up in immediately afterwards. There also an opportunity to have a meal and a drink with all your fellow swimmers afterwards at a venue close by.
