US: Seasonal Calendar 2022

By Jack Hudson , 06 June, 2022

SwimTrekkers come from all walks of life and parts of the world. In this feature, we've curated a selection of trips tailored for our US market, with swim-packed adventures from the North American wilderness to the more distant islands of Southeast Asia…

Just like our 2022: Seasonal Calendar these trips are set out across the calendar year and tailored for each season. There should be something for all swimmers in here, from the heady rush of an international race event to a more relaxing mixture of yoga and swimming on the volcanic coast of Indonesia.


This is your chance to swim a freshwater wilderness spanned by the Churchill River System in Canada's Saskatchewan province. Our Canadian Wilderness adventure was brought in as a SwimTrek Pioneer trip for anyone looking to swim in places few have ever been before you!
