The winter swimming spot of Varkaus is located behind Ilopisara swimming hall in Tyyskä, and is open 24 h/day throughout the winter because the ice hole is kept open through the winter with a pump. The winter swimming spot is lighted, on the end of a dock and has a heating mat, as well as a changing booth nearby for changing your clothing. Ice hole swimming is marked with signs: “talviuintipaikka”. If you use the changing booth, be sure to keep it clean. Varkauden Latu ry is responsible for maintaining the winter swimming spot and supplying the key for the changing booth.
