    The HIKONIC is back! 

    This is a swim-hike "mission" allowing you to swim some of Devon's most iconic wild swims and getting to each one via breath-taking coastal paths. This adventure covers a total swim distance of 5km and coast path hiking for 10km - so a decent level of fitness is required. It takes between 7 and 8 hours to complete.

    For this, we will provide you with a Ruckraft from Above Below, a great piece of kit which allows you to swim with your hiking gear (as a large tow float behind you) and hike with your swim gear on your back (bring your back pack).

    In this activity, condition's depending, we take in 3 of the most iconic swims in the UK: the Thurlestone Arch, the end of the Avon river (known as the Swoosh), twice, and Burgh Island.

    If conditions are unsafe on the day, we have alternative routes in which we still take in some the South hams most amazing sights and places. We don't think you will be disappointed!

    Included in the price is:

    - Full swim guide and safety cover

    - Loan of a Ruckraft for your Hikonic

    -Premium Coast to Coast Water Safety swim hat

    Not included:


    -Food and snacks

    If you want a private individual or group swim (we can cater for groups up to 11 participants) or have a specific date in mind, please contact us directly via our website or by phone on 07448627184 and we'll discuss it together.


    -If you cancel 30 days or more before your swim: full refund minus £3.50 administration fee.

    -If you cancel less than 30 days before your swim: we sadly cannot offer a refund. However, we are happy for you to find someone to swim in your place, they will have to contact us ASAP so we can address them the relevant forms and information prior to the swim.

    -If we cancel or should weather/sea conditions turn unsafe, we will contact you within 48 hours prior to your swim to reschedule or offer a voucher valid for 1 year or offer a full refund.

    -Able to walk across uneven terrain (hilly coast path, rocks, beach)

    -Able to sustain moderate level activity (hiking and swimming) for 8 hours
