Antarctic, Arctic and Beyond Expeditions

An Aurora expedition is literally Life. Changing.

You might have noticed we don’t call it a cruise, but an expedition.

Founded by legendary adventurer Greg Mortimer more than 30 years ago, our expert Expedition Team has always been about sharing their knowledge and understanding of some of the most remote and unspoiled destinations in Antarctica, the Arctic and beyond, because when you disembark we want you to be richer in your knowledge and more understanding of our planet than you were when you stepped aboard. To see our new ships and the many remote destinations we visit, download our latest brochure. Because if you want to see something you’ve never seen, you have to go somewhere you’ve never been.
