I could hardly believe my eyes. This was kind of chocking even for me that is Swedish to see. You can be sure I will not be the one to jump into ice cold water like this. Sauna or no sauna. I may be Swedish but I am not that much of a viking. The Swedish viking in me has been diluted too much.
Jumping into the ice cold water seemed very popular. There were lots of people coming out from the sauna eager to jump in. You could see it was kind of slippery for them wearing their flip flops.
Something even crazier that you would never ever see for sure in the US is people skinny dipping. We saw both men and women going skinny dipping. So not only will the Swedes be crazy enough to jump into ice cold water in the middle of winter but they will also gladly do it completely naked!
