Scandinavia Adventure Trip

August 3, 2010

Hole in the Ice

individual 3-5 day trip to Scandinavia

Icebathing Ice Digging

Ice swimming or Icebathing is swimming in a body of water with a frozen crust of ice, which requires cutting a hole in the ice. Stairs must be attached as a safety precaution. This may also be simulated by a pool of water at 0 °C, the temperature at which water freezes. Ice swimming is possible because the freezing of water releases heat, so that the water does not refreeze instantly.

It is a wonderful method not only of tempering the body, but also of increasing the energetic might of the organism. Statistics holds that among those who practice winter swimming sickness rate decreases for cold-type diseases 60 times, and for other diseases — 30 times.
