Swimming in the outdoors is totally normal in Norway, and “wild swimming” is a somewhat strange concept – that’s just how you go for a swim.
Children are taught to swim at a young age and spend most of their childhood splashing in lakes, rivers, the fjords and the sea. For those who are not convinced, there are many benefits of swimming outdoors. It increases circulation, gives your immune system a boost and burns calories. But maybe most important, it gives energy, you will feel recharges and are oh so fun.
