If you are looking for a swimming ‘challenge’ in 2017 or 2018, then we have a range of options to suit you.


Lake Annecy in SeptemberAnnecy is a truly iconic swim and a great long distance challenge to add to any open water swimmer’s repertoire. At 15km this is a great step up from a 10km, and what a place to challenge yourself. Set against a backdrop of spectacular Alpine peaks, Lake Annecy promises a magical swim. The turquoise lake is enclosed in the Haute-Savoie, one of France’s most beautiful regions. At 14.6km, it is one of the largest lakes in France and often hailed as “Europe’s cleanest lake”.

IMG_0723The River Arun swim was our first ever SwimQuest tour, inspired by John Coningham-Rolls’ childhood days in West Sussex. What better way to spend a summers day: swimming from stunning Arundel Castle to Bury Village, soaking up the English Countryside at its finest and stopping just in time for a spot of pub lunch at the Squire and Horse pub. In line with the SwimQuest ethos, this is a journey and not a mass-participation race!  You will be helped and encouraged all the way by our friendly SwimQuest guides. Click to find out more and to book >
