VIDEO: Is this Sweden's craziest winter tradition?

For many, ‘Swedish winter’ means long nights, cold days, and lots of warm clothes to fend off sub-zero temperatures.

Of course, it is possible to flout that smug Swedish maxim: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”.

For inspiration, we tagged along when Sammy Kemp, an Australian now living in Malmö, made a mid-winter visit to the city’s popular Ribergborgs Kallbadhus (called ‘Kallis’ by Malmö locals),

And judging from Sammy’s reaction (see video below), it seems winter is indeed the perfect time of year for an exhilarating visit to Malmö.

Are you ready to take the plunge?
