This will be our third camp with superb Pontus Palmqvist. As usual, you will have the entire place for yourselves with a three-lane 25-meter outdoor pool and five indoor and outdoor exercise areas.


Pontus runs a training program tailored for you that he puts in two levels. Partly for those who are on a more beginner level and partly for those who have got started and want to put in an extra gear. Read more below about the daily programs below. If you have any questions about the training - do not hesitate to contact Pontus.

11 480 sek/ person in shared double room
10 980 sek/ person if you book 2 people at once and who share a double room.


Pontus explains the training:


This trip is suitable for both beginners and experienced!

It is always difficult to find an even level in a group. The advantage is that we have the whole place for ourselves and our own 25m pool where we can control when and how we train and when people / groups train. If you are not sure if you have the requirements to be involved, please contact me at


Group 1: You have knowledge of free swimming, can make your way in the pool, have possibly started beginners course and now want to take the step to be able to longer free swim, get to breathing and rhythm. Then this is the group for you! Requirements about 100m clearance.


Group 2: The more experienced, maybe you have completed an Ironman, vansbro swimming or completed a swimrun race and are now tired of being seamed and ready to put in the next gear. Then this is the group for you. Requirements 1000m free swimming and 1-2 years experience in swimming training.

Abruzzo - an hidden gem on the Adriatic coast with perfect climate


Abruzzo is an unknown gem on the Adriatic coast with perfect climate. In Abruzzo you will find genuine small villages, where life rolls on without stress and bustle. A colorful landscape with miles of olive and vineyards, high snow-covered mountains in the background - and the turquoise blue Adriatic. Abruzzo also has an extensive nature conservation area with forests and hiking trails, winding streams and - not least - a rich and unique fauna.

Day trips


Two afternoon we take off in our neighborhood,  to the sea, some villages and maybe a winery. Just 20 minutes away is the picturesque medieval town of Vasto, which is beautifully situated by the sea. We try to catch a visit to local shops and some wine cantina if you want to buy something home with you.

Shared hosting


Your main host of the training and event is Pontus - but we will also take care of you as "on-site hosts" during your stay here, as well as offering opportunities for mountain visits, some sightseeing in our immediate area. We don't want you to miss the area!

We have built a house for groups. Here we all eat together at a large long table in the dining room or on the terrace. We have large common areas. The terrace offers views of vineyards and olive groves, as well as the sea in the background to the east and the mountain to the west.


We have 8 double rooms (single beds or double beds) with private bathroom with shower, a gym / yoga room with carpets and some free weights. You are free to use the laundry room. We have wifi in common areas, but not in the rooms.


A three-course 25 meter pool, a gym / yoga room and an outdoor platform for training and yoga. The house is on a hillside with surrounding olive groves and vineyards. We have a view of the sea and the mountains in the background. It is quiet and secluded but not far from our nearest villages.
