Service Description

Walking along the coastal paths, soaking up the sea views and then swimming in the clear sea with the rugged coastline as a backdrop is definitely an adventure you don’t want to miss. Swimming in the sea with experienced safety guides is pure joy. The Hikonic adventure swim will allow you the opportunity explore some of Devon's most iconic wild swims and getting to each one via breath-taking coastal paths is a good way to spend a weekend. The Hikonic adventure covers a total swim distance of 5km and coast path hiking for 10km - so make sure you are swim and hiking fit. Strong breaststroke swimmers can join the adventure. You will be lent a Ruckraft from Above Below,( which is a great piece of kit and allows you to swim with your hiking gear behind you and hike with your swim gear on your back.

Believe me it’s an outstanding full day of swimming and hiking. If conditions are unsafe on the day of your swim hike, we have an alternative route in which we still take in some the South hams most amazing sights and places.
