Helsinki’s outdoor pools of Kumpula and Swimming Stadium will organize dramatic late-night swimming “under the moon” to end their seasons. Kumpula’s Full Moon Swim will take place on Friday, 23 August, and Swimming Stadium’s Swimming Under the Moon on Friday, 13 September.
The late-night swimming allows swimmers to enjoy the darkening sky, while doing laps and enjoying being in water, to the sound of music. Swimmers at Kumpula’s Full Moon Swim will be entertained with live music by Helsinki Vagabonds from 20:00–22:00.
On the nights of swimming under the moon, both the Kumpula outdoor pool and Swimming Stadium hold doors open to 23:00. The pool areas close at 23:30. Normal charges apply: adults €4.50, special groups €2.80, minors (ages 7–17) €2.20.
The 2019 season closes on Sunday, 25 August, at the Kumpula outdoor pool, and on Sunday, 13 September, at Swimming Stadium.
