The term 'wild swimming' has been used to describe the age-old practise of swimming in natural waters, be it lakes, rivers or the ocean. Unlike the restrictive and somewhat clinical environment of constructed, chlorine-filled swimming pools, wild swimming allows people to escape to the outdoors and return to the true essence and exhilaration of swimming in natural surroundings and fresh water. The individuals featured in this series regularly venture into the wild to swim in some of the most unique swimming havens across Northern Ireland. This series aims to reveal the adventurous nature of these individuals; they do not view swimming as a competitive, indoor sport, but rather an animated, outdoor activity to be enjoyed within the natural landscape.
