1. Try Ice Swimming
Ready to jump into 8°C water? Put your coat on over your swimsuit and meet in Plouha (Côtes d’Armor) for a session of ice swimming. What is it? Swimming in the open sea, without a wetsuit of course! Icelanders, Russians and Finns all love it. On Bréhec beach, Marc-Henri and Paul coach you throughout an experience that requires good preparation. First, a warm drink to get to know each other, then your blood pressure is taken, followed by a warm-up, a few relaxation exercises, and you’re ready for a 15-minute swim, no more, no less. It’s a shock at first, but breathe in, breathe out… the key is to focus on your breathing. You’ll leave with a clear mind, boosted for winter!
