SwimTrek: Photo of the Year, 2021

By Jack Hudson , 02 December, 2021

This past month, we were passing around ideas about how to sum up 2021 for you. Then, as we often do, we began to scroll through our trove of SwimTrekker photos, from Sardinia's Emerald Coast to the Cascade Lakes of Oregon. Suddenly we found ourselves picking out a selection of some of our favourite shots and memories from around the world - further evidence that nothing (notwithstanding a pandemic) can get between a swimmer and their long-awaited patch of open water...

And, finally, we've come to our pick for the best stand-out photo of 2021! We love all of the above, but somehow this particular shot just kept drawing us back. Maybe it's how irresistible this particular expanse of azure water looks. Or, it could be the suggestion of an adventurous crossing to a distant, uninhabited island - a highlight experience from our classic Milos trips. Whatever it is, Laura has definitely captured the thrill of riding calm seas and swimming between sunlit Greek Islands!
