IS this distance swimming week for me?

This tour is ideal for anyone looking to:

Distance Development SwimQuest

Get to grips with distance training in safe, beautiful bays

– take their distance swimming to the next level
– find out about feeding, training and crewing for long distance swims
– try longer distances in warm water, with or without a wetsuit
– complete some end of season distance training

Perhaps you have completed your first couple of open water swims and you are feeling inspired or looking for your next step. Our Distance Development week is an introduction to swimming further for longer. This tour takes place in September in Formentera, when the water is warmer than it is for it’s sister tour, our slightly tougher (and colder!) Channel & Distance training weeks. This tour is a great way to get a feel for distance training, without having to battle the cold water.

With a full safety escort and expert advice from the SwimQuest team, you will be able to discover and push your boundaries, speak to likeminded individuals, find out about potential swim events and learn about the training and preparation required for long distance swimming.

Formentera is located off the southern coast of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea. You will stay in a private villa, just metres from the sea.
