Practical info

Clothing & Weather

There is no specific dress code for this event. We recommend you bring warm clothing and good boots. Umbrellas are useless here as the wind tends to be strong and so precipitation comes at you diagonally rather than straight down. All manner of clothing can be bought here, however, prices are high and so if you have decent enough gear due bring it. There are a lot of fantastic outdoor swimming pools. They are all acclimatized and so you can go in any weather, they are always warm, and in actual fact, going when it is really cold just adds to the experience. They are also very cheap so we highly recommend you bring swimwear.
