Swim Retreat at Mt White Station

Swim Retreat at Mt White Station

13 – 15 December 2024

Join us in the high country for a unique RealSwim Adventure!


This swim retreat is a holistic, natural, water-based experience, located on a remote working high-country station in Arthurs Pass, South Island, New Zealand.

Off the beaten track, surrounded by mountains and immersed in the stunning back country of NZ, this weekend has all the ingredients that we think you need to recharge, switch off, revitalise and connect. Daily swims, great food, luxury accommodation, walking, gorgeous scenery and a stretching session.
You’ll be situated right next to an amazing high-country lake which is 1.4km long for daily swims that will feed the soul.

This swim camp is unique from our other trips as we organise everything for you…you just need to get yourself to the location, then you can relax, as we guide you through the weekend.

Road access is very good and most often a standard car will be suitable. However, in the case of inclement weather, the creeks can rise very quickly. We would recommend a SUV or similar for this trip.

Lake Temperature
This will be dependent on the spring weather leading into the weekend, but will likely be mid-teens.

If you have any questions about this camp, please email Penelope: info@fitandabel.com
