Fjord Fun

The Sognefjord Swim Festival will be held in Norway on August 7-9. The Sognefjord Swim Festival is held among beautiful Scandinavian scenery.

The events include the 3.7K Sognefjord Challenge across the deepest fjord in the world and two wonderful open water swimming talks.

One talk will be given by Martin Strel who will talk about his 5,268K (3,274-mile) swim down the Amazon, and the other talk will be given by Mariia Yrjö Koskinen, President of the International Winter Swimming Association, who will talk about winter swimming around the world.
