Swim the Hellespont race, visit some of Europe’s most incredible historic monuments, sample delicious local food, and see Gallipoli with your own eyes – on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
If you’ve ever dreamed of swimming from one continent to another for a great cause, Swim for Soldier On is your chance!
Join us on the ultimate world swim in 2019, as one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world is closed to traffic for the annual “Victory Day” Hellespont swimming race. This event gives you a truly unique opportunity to swim across the legendary Dardanelles Strait from Europe to Asia.
The famous poet, Lord Byron first swam the Hellespont in 1810. Since then, it has been considered the epitome of open water swimming and is at the very top of any adventurous swimmer’s wish list.
On this challenge, you will also have the opportunity to visit Gallipoli, a place that is symbolic of Australia’s identity.
Spots are limited, so don’t miss out – enquire today and start your adventure. Final itinerary and dates to be confirmed.
