Lake bagging is a fast-emerging adventure exercise trend
A phrase popped up in my Twitter feed recently that I’d never come across before: lake bagging.
It doesn’t involve bags, but it does involve lakes, specifically wild swimming. Lake baggers are hardy souls who swim in natural lakes which they then tick off on a personal list of achievement. It’s a twist on the more recognised peak bagging, which is a term hikers use to record the number of mountains they’ve scaled.
There is no official organisation overseeing lake bagging but there are unwritten rules: you must swim at least 800 metres, the lake must be named, you must not leave any litter behind, and you must dunk your head underwater.
Here are 10 lakes that EDGAR would love to tick off its lake bagging list.
