Step into the heart of nature with Aurora Expeditions! Over the past 27 years, Australian-owned adventure company Aurora Expeditions has become the leader in small-group, expedition-style travel to the polar regions and other wild and remote destinations. Its aim is to connect like-minded travellers with nature and wildlife, and offer unique experiences and activities in some of the world’s most inspiring regions. This includes breathtaking destinations such as Antarctica, the European Arctic, Costa Rica, Scotland, Chile, Patagonia, Greenland, Iceland and many more.

Set to sail in 2019, Aurora Expeditions’ new state-of-the-art purpose-built expedition vessel, the Greg Mortimer, is the first passenger vessel to feature the patented Ulstein X-Bow®, allowing for faster and smoother sailings - a ship designed by expeditioners, for expeditioners. Named after Aurora Expeditions' co-founder, the Greg Mortimer carries an average of 126 passengers in total per voyage, which reinforces Aurora Expeditions ‘small group, big experience’ ethos.

Having a small-ship allows the expedition team flexibility to change course and take advantage of fantastic opportunities as they present themselves, such as unexpected wildlife displays or spontaneous shore excursions. With Aurora Expeditions all shore excursions are complimentary allowing passengers plenty of time to explore the surrounding wildlife and unique environments visited.
