Your wild swimming kit

Seen by many Scandinavians as normal ("surely that's just how you go for a swim?"), make sure you can deal with the spring water temperatures thanks to our keep-you-warm-as-toast buys


1. Fill with hot soup

Even though we’re heading into spring, nothing beats something hot and tasty after a wild swim. The Food’ie flask, (500ml) from Danish brand Aya&Ida, will keep food warm for eight hours.

2. Take cover

The Nordic robe from Bleubird is designed for embracing the elements. Being fully waterproof, it’s perfect for any spring showers on the horizon.

3. Dry off with ease

Pop a Rulo cotton weave towel from Lüks in your swim bag – they are perfect for wrapping your hair in, or drying hands and feet.

4. Keep heat in

Pop this cable-knit bobble hat on as soon as you get out of the water. It’s from Scottish brand Findra. There’s an internal fleece band that makes it extra comfy and keeps your head and ears toasty, as well as a fun pompom!

5 Find the perfect cossie

Founder of Danish label OMHU, Lin Routhe was born and raised in Jutland, where she would swim all year round with her family. The new HAV swimsuit (which means ‘sea’ in Danish) has been created for sea swims, winter saunas and everything in between. And what’s best? It’s reversible black/green, giving you two swimsuits in one.
