Pure cold. Finnish people have always known that cold is good for you. Throughout time we have taken dips in ice holes or rolled in snow after the sauna.


    Avant°pool is an innovative design company and equipment manufacturer focusing on wellbeing. They were originally a swimming pool company based in Espoo, Finland. A few ice-swimming enthusiasts asked them about a pool that would be suitable for use at home.

    They could not find the product for them and, in 2014, started looking in earnest for a cold-immersion pool. They found some products, but they were large, complex to install and expensive.

    A study on the subject was carried out in cooperation with the University of Jyväskylä. In 2016, the R&D project received a grant from the Finnish government. At the conclusion of the two-year project, Avant°pool was established in 2017. Avant°pool’s first pool the Kinos and was launched in 2018, the new entry level Hanki pool was launched in 2020 .


    The Avantopool Kinos is a high quality, fully automated cold and warm recovery pool for professional sports and fitness enthusiasts.It is the only portable cold recovery device on the market with continual water cleaning.

    The Avantopool Hanki is a high-quality cold recovery pool for professional and sports and fitness enthusiasts. Featuring a cooling unit with an adjustable temperature range between +4°C and +16°C, the Hanki recovery pool is portable and very simple to use and maintain.
