Where it all started
Our idea was born while immersed in the nippy waters of Llyn Gwynant at the foot of Snowdon.
Several swims, hard boiled eggs and campfires followed and by spring 2019, we brought Wild Swim Snowdonia to life.
We would love to see more people swimming year round, both locally in our own community and visitors.
Through our guided wild swimming and our local swim meets, we are going to do our bit to help make this happen.
Our environmental impact is a huge priority for us and we will embed our ethically minded approach into every swim we do.
This is echoed through our roles as Snowdonia representatives for Surfers Against Sewage @snowdoniabeachclean

Laura believes in the healing powers of the ocean and has used it to treat the symptoms of a recent and continuing illness. When not in the sea, Laura can be found in her art studio or scanning a map for her next dip.
