Our 2014 Spain swim tour is under construction. For an idea of what to expect please see our 2013 tour below.
We are very excited about our new swim tour of the magnificient Costa Brava coast. Enjoy daily supported swims. Compete in a locally organised event. Swim "internationally" between France and Spain & of course indulge in the culture, food and wine of this wonderful region. Our swims are tailored to the individual so if you want to wear fins or take it easy that is fine. Want a challenge? That is fine too - there will always be someone to swim those extra k's with you! Our Spanish swim guide previously swam on the national team and is now a swim coach specialising in open water swimming.

This beautiful city is full of what European cities are known for (outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums, and churches) and is fantastic for walking with an extensive and reliable Metro system for more far-flung destinations.
