Scantily clad, on foot and on cross-country skis through Sportgastein, to top it off, a short dip in ice-cold water - and the whole thing at a maximum of 0°C. Sounds crazy, but it has positive effects on the immune system and provides you with energy. This is the outdoor event Ice4Life in Gastein.
Be part of Ice4Life in the Gasteinertal. An event with adrenaline and cold to strengthen the immune system. Register now and discover a whole new quality of life.
The minimum age for participation at Ice4Life is 18 years. Be aware that participation is at your own risk and a disclaimer must be signed.
Without preparation, braving the cold becomes hard work. Make sure you prepare well for the challenge. Ice4life is organizing (free) training days this fall, which can be found here. We recommend training with a buddy. If needed, we can refer you to instructors of the Wim Hof method, so you can train breathing, concentration and the right mindset.
The registration takes place via Website of Ice4Life.
After registration, you will receive from Ice4Life all information about participation.
Participation in the event costs €175 per person, which will be used to organize the event, a reflection and information evening and a party evening afterwards. The organization is in the hands of a group of volunteers. For those who decide quickly and book before 17.10.2021, there is an early booking discount of €40.
