Aurora Expeditions

About Aurora Expeditions

Step into the heart of nature with small-ship expeditions from Aurora Expeditions. With more than 30-years experience, the Australian-owned adventure company 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 travelers with nature and wildlife, while offering more off-ship activities in some of the world's most inspiring regions. This includes breathtaking destinations such as Antarctica, the European Arctic, Costa Rica, British Isles, Greenland, Iceland and many more.

Aurora Expeditions' state-of-the-art purpose-built expedition vessel, the Greg Mortimer, was the first passenger vessel to feature the patented Ulstein X-Bow®, allowing for faster and smoother sailings. Named after Aurora Expeditions' co-founder, the Greg Mortimer carries an average of 132 passengers per voyage, which reinforces Aurora Expeditions 'small group, big experience' ethos.

Sailing on its inaugural voyage in November 2022, the Sylvia Earle will become the second ship in Aurora's fleet. The ship is a floating ambassador for the conservation of the planet, paying tribute to Dr. Sylvia Earle and six pioneering conservationists with public decks honoring their contributions and shining a light on their important conservation causes. Certified 100% Carbon Neutral, she has a fully equipped Citizen Science Centre, host expert lectures and participative Citizen Science programs, to enrich your knowledge and connection to the places you travel to.

Aurora's expeditions are all about more opportunities for you to get off the ship to explore and connect with the incredible destinations. They have the most comprehensive activity program, supported by the most experienced Expedition Team on hand, dedicated to making the experience action packed, educational and immersive in the natural environment.
