Copenhagen Swim Guide
Copenhagen is one of the only cities in Europe where the harbor water is clean enough to swim in. We got together with Emilie Lilja our Danish brand ambassador who has created a Copenhagen swim guide.
Summer is around the corner and for the danish people, that means spending as much time as possible in Copenhagen's best water locations. Copenhagen is one of the only cities in Europe where the harbor water is clean enough to swim in. The harbor baths and the city beach in Islands Brygge give us Danes a lot of great opportunities for a quick dip on the go before or after work.
As 66°North is launching new colors of their swimwear, we thought it would be a great focus for this year's “Cityguide”, as I´ve decided to commit myself to the habit of a morning swim 2 times a week, in order to improve my mental health and use this as a mood booster. Therefore I´ve put together my favorite spots in Copnehagen for this habit to evolve and I hope you´ll join me, perhaps to include your personal favorite spot?
