What to Expect

Your Twilight Swim begins as the daylight fades and the Lake District’s night sky reveals itself. We’ll meet at your selected lakeside spot and start with an overview of night swimming safety. As the stars emerge, we’ll enter the water, allowing the tranquil night to envelop us as we swim. Once we’ve soaked in the serene atmosphere and the peaceful night sky, we’ll dry off and share some hot chocolate, recounting our unique experience under the stars.

In the winter months, we will run the twilight session between 4pm and 6pm. In the summer, we will run the session between 6pm and 9pm.

Location

We host our Twilight Swims at various serene lakes within the Lake District National Park, renowned for clear skies and minimal light pollution—perfect for a night swim. The starting point will be easily accessible from the shore of your chosen lake. We choose the perfect spot based on your preferences and swimming experience.

Prerequisites

Swimmers should feel comfortable in the water (ability to swim 50m unaided), but no prior experience in wild swimming is necessary. An adventurous spirit and readiness to embrace the night waters are all that’s needed.

Why Choose Us?

The Twilight Swim session offers a unique opportunity to connect with nature and the cosmos in a way that daytime swims can’t match. We pride ourselves on personalising each swim to the individual, ensuring a memorable, safe, and magical experience. Join us for a twilight adventure and swim with the stars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wild swimming is swimming in natural bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and oceans, as opposed to swimming in man-made pools. It emphasises the experience of swimming in a natural, often outdoor environment, and is often appreciated for its connection to nature, sense of freedom, and the different sensory experience compared to pool swimming. Wild swimming has grown in popularity as a way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise, and experience the mental and emotional benefits of being in natural surroundings.

Please come prepared with your swimwear, a towel. If you have a wetsuit, it’s recommended for additional warmth, but not compulsory. Don’t forget a change of dry clothes for after your swim, and a waterproof bag can be handy to keep your belongings dry. Some of the walks to the start of the swim are uneven and wearing appropriate walking shoes is advised. A headlamp or waterproof light can be useful, although the natural starlight often provides a serene ambiance. Safety equipment will be provided by us, including lights to ensure visibility.

Safety is our primary concern, especially during night swims. Our sessions include a thorough safety briefing before entering the water. We provide you with lights and safety gear, and our experienced instructors are always close by, equipped with rescue gear and first aid training. We also keep our groups small to ensure that each swimmer receives ample attention.

Absolutely! The Twilight Swim is designed to be accessible for beginners. You’ll be in the capable hands of our instructors who will provide you with an introduction to wild swimming. They will guide you through every step, from entering the water to navigating safely in the dark. It’s a gentle and thrilling way to get acquainted with wild swimming.
