Kiki Bosch is a professional Dutch ice freediver. She dives into the world’s most freezing waters on a single breath and without a wetsuit, from the iceberg fjords of Greenland to the frozen lakes of Finland.

Kiki discovered the healing effect of cold water immersion after experiencing the debilitating trauma of being raped. She has pushed her physical and psychological limits to overcome her scars and break boundaries that most people can barely imagine.

She now travels across the world and inspires others to harness the power of the cold for their own healing.
