‘Meandering down the Mole’
A river swimming safari exploring and discovering local wildlife and conservation efforts, featuring the Wild Swimming Brothers
River Mole, Surrey, England | June 30-July 1, 2018
Building on the success of our ‘Durdle Door Wild Swim’ in 2017, Adventure Uncovered will once again partner with the Wild Swimming Brothers, taking a small group of 15 outdoor swimming enthusiasts on a swimming surfari, to swim a unique stretch of water down the River Mole in Surrey.
The Mole is a tributary of the Thames and rises in West Sussex before finishing opposite Hampton Court Palace. The river winds its way through steep-sided valleys; through the chalk cliff Mole Gap which is an SSSI of European importance, and now boasts the greatest diversity of fish species of any river in England!
Intrepid swimmers will meet at a central London location at 9am on the Saturday (or make their own way there), returning on Sunday afternoon after 32 hours of swimming, camping, campfires and home cooked food by the river bank.
The event will bring together a fun, inclusive group of swimmers to this hidden river jewel, traversing the famous ‘steps’, discovering local wildlife, participating in a river clean up, and hearing new, unheard exclusive talks along the way.
