Ice4Life in Gastein

Experience the power of the cold - 26. - 28.1.2023

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.


  • 26th to 28th January 2023
  • In Sportgastein, Gasteinertal.
  • Running, cross-country skiing and swimming
  • Cold training for a healthier and more efficient body

Ice4Life is based on the Wim Hof method, a breathing technique that aims to increase body temperature. Combined with gentle exercise and cold training, it makes the body healthier and more efficient.
