2019 Highlights: 41 Photos from a Prime Polar Year

by Oceanwide Expeditions Blog

If you overhear someone say, "It's been a good year," they're probably a farmer or financier or maybe even a wine producer. But we think polar tour operator should be added to that list, because 2019 was one of Oceanwide's best years for many reasons.

2019: A year of polar adventures photos

If you overhear someone say, "It's been a good year," they're probably a farmer or financier or maybe even a wine producer.

But we think polar tour operator should be added to that list, because 2019 was one of Oceanwide's best years for many reasons: Our new ship Hondius set out on its first polar voyage, our newer ship Janssonius began construction, and for the third year in a row we flew passengers to the rarely visited emperor penguin colony on Snow Hill Island.

Not a bad vintage, if we do say so ourselves.

So we decided to throw together a few photos from the 2019 expedition calendar. Not every great photo taken that year could be included, of course, but we selected a balance of scenes we felt were representative of the last twelve months - one from every trip log.

We hope you enjoy them, and may you share many more with us in 2020.
