Welcome to the Rovaniemi 2014 Winter Swimming World Championships


The 2014 Winter Swimming World Championships will be in the Lapland city of Rovaniemi, close to the Arctic circle, official hometown of Santa Claus 20-23 March 2014. Notice that in their preliminary program, the first day is reserved to Accreditation and … Acclimatization, I fear that that’s about where the warmness stops ;-)

Also please notice, the Finnish Santa might not be the warm and cuddly kind that you expect, as demonstrated in the brilliant Finnish movie Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
