Lady of Avenel

A great option for the curious SwimTrekker, these week-long swimming trips give you the chance to sail along the British Coast, swim in the Atlantic and traverse islands at either end of the United Kingdom. Join us aboard the Lady of Avenel, a 102-foot Brigantine rigged ship, on which we'll make our home as we swim and explore the most stunning and remote reaches of the British Isles.

You can choose from our Scottish swimming adventure in the The Isle of Skye trips, or take on the rugged west coast of Ireland on our Donegal adventure.
