All swims follow the International Ice Swimming Association (“IISA”) standards and safety rules.

To qualify, one must have their qualifying swim, per IISA rules, in their BIO before the trip. 

You must decide your desired swim distance and communicate it to the team leader during bookings. 

The decisions regarding your swimming distance will be at the team leader’s discretion based on your experience and conditions at the time. We always try and do our best to have everyone achieving their desired distance, with safety first.

IISA RULES and Qualifying Criteria.

Any swim of 100m or longer must have been done before as per IISA before your trip.
