Overview Vinterbading

Why are more and more people choosing to submerge themselves in ice-cold water in midwinter? To don mittens and bobble hats and feel chunks of ice sloshing against their naked flesh?

The author, who’s in her eight year of year-round bathing, tells you what you need to know before, during and after winter bathing, and uses science and her own experience to answer questions like: Is it safe? Can anyone go for a dip when it is freezing cold? What happens inside your body?

In Winter Bathing, Cecilie Thunem-Saanum invites you to join her in the open channels between the ice when the temperatures are well below freezing and long after the frost has taken hold. In the water, an experience of profound peace, a clarified mind and great wellbeing await you. On land, an energy boost, a rush of joy and a sense of achievement is the award – along with a towel and dry clothes.
