How to Travel the World Through Swimming

By Olivia Weatherill , 26 October, 2018

Our guests are a constant source of inspiration for us and when we received a thought provoking testimonial reading 'SwimTrek empowered me to travel by swimming,' this inspired us to think of the range of possibilities of travel that SwimTrek can facilitate for you. We believe our trips cover some of the best swimming adventures across the globe and with swimming holidays in 5 continents, 25 countries and 50+ locations(!), you really can travel the world with SwimTrek! Below we've put together a mix of some great trips from all areas of the world. Where else are you going to discover with SwimTrek?

St Kitts and Nevis

Our trip to St Kitts and Nevis offers the opportunity to swim the channel between these two sister islands, to explore the majority of the west coast of Nevis and to swim with the view of Nevis Peak in the distance.

Lake Bled and the Slovenian Alps

Join us on the rocky southern coast of Crete where we'll explore the charming fishing villages that are scattered along this part of the island. A must do for swimmers who love the thrill of exploring thoroughly one area in particular.

Oman Fjords

This trip will see us explore the rocky fjord backdrop of the Gulf of Oman, the stony walls that surround a stark contrast to the emerald green and deep blue waters. You'll enjoy traditional food and travel in style in a local dhoni boat, take in the impressive panoramic views from the great vantage point of our hotel the Atana Khasab, and if your fortunate, you may even spot a dolphin or two!

So now that you're suitably inspired, the only question is, where to next?
