The Ease into Easedale Wild Swim sums up outdoor swimming in the Lake District fells, dramatic scenery and crystal clear tarn swimming. This is one of our most popular wild swims and brings out the big kid in most of our swimmers 🙂
We’ll be hiking into this fantastic swimming location with plunge pool stops along the way and plenty of opportunity for tea drinking and Grasmere Gingerbread munching between swims.
Ease into Easedale is all about relaxing into the Lake District wild swimming experience. Don’t worry about your speed or ability; just soak up the views above and below the water. If you want to stay on the beach and soak up the atmosphere, feel free; if you’d prefer to race to the next island we’re sure someone will take up the challenge. Your guides are experienced open water swimmers and qualified lifeguards, who are keen to share their knowledge of the local area and give swimming tips to enhance your outdoor swimming experience.
As always in mountainous areas, our itinerary is dependent on the weather, but we hope to enjoy all that the Lakes and the surrounding fells have to offer.
Group sizes are small so that you can get the most from our knowledgeable and friendly staff.
