Danish brand Alexander Cobb has released the results of the photo-shoot for their Latitude range of swimwear.

The designs are named after the seas of the world: Carribean, Coral, Adriatic, Ross, Solomon, and Labrador.

Available as a swimming brief or boxer short, the designs are cut to support movement and speed in the water. The quick-drying fabric is quick-drying, durable, and holds its shape.

You may not automatically associate the Danish capital with being a swimming-lover’s ideal destination, but Copenhagen is a city that is defined by light and water — that means good swimming. There’s no better way to really get under the skin of the city than to immerse yourself into one of the many swimming opportunities that you’ll find in Copenhagen.

Not only is swimming a great way to keep fit and get some exercise while you are travelling, it’s also a great way to get a different perspective on the Danish capital and live life like the locals.

Bellahøj Swimming Stadium

Copenhagen’s main swimming centre is the dramatically modern Bellahøj Swimming Stadium. Featuring indoor as well as outdoor swimming pools, this is a stadium designed for international standard swimming. This is where you’ll find the Danish national team training, as well as local water polo players. The stadium is easily accessible by public transport, or it’s a short taxi ride from the centre of town. Like all swimming pools in Scandinavia, they’re quite strict on hygiene here, so the chlorine levels are low and the water quality is high.

Dive into the harbour

If you’re visiting the Danish capital during the summer months, and the weather is warm, then the ideal way to get some exercise is to go for a swim in the Copenhagen Harbour. The water here in the harbour is surprisingly clear and fresh, and the locals love to swim in its waters. To assist those wanting to swim, the Copenhagen Harbour Authority has created a number of dedicated swimming pontoons — complete with jumping platforms and watchful lifeguards. The most popular swimming pontoon can be found at Islands Brygge which is easily accessible by public transport. It’s here at Islands Brygge that all of the locals come to sunbathe and catch-up with friends while they enjoy the sunshine.
