Aurora Expeditions cheers its Antarctica season

Aurora’s expedition leaders on an ice floe in Antarctica
Australia’s Aurora Expeditions successfully completed its first season back to Antarctica after almost two years.

A global mix of passengers, mainly from Australia, the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Singapore, sailed in polar ship Greg Mortimer across eight voyages of 10 to 23 days from January to April. 

30th anniversary

‘Aurora Expeditions is thrilled with the success of our return season to Antarctica, getting back to what we do best in our 30th year of operation,’ VP Operations Tomas Holik said.

‘We are honoured to have received so much remarkable feedback from our expeditioners who joined us this season,’ Chief Marketing Officer Hayley Peacock-Gower added.

‘No one comes back from Antarctica the same,’ Peacock-Gower said. ‘It changes them.’

Aurora’s 2022/23 Antarctica season commences in October, with many voyages already sold out.

2023 Arctic

The company recently released its 2023 Arctic season with new itineraries, including the 'Jewels of Coastal UK,' 'Across the Arctic Circle' and Canary Islands and Cape Verde and the Azores.
