For many years Aurora Expeditions has worked closely with a select group of expedition companies; those that are closely aligned with the philosophies we hold dear – small groups, big adventures, fantastic itineraries and responsible travel.
When it is not possible for Aurora Expeditions to operate in every destination that we would like, we have identified the experts in these regions with whom we have a trusted relationship.
The Aurora Partnership Program outlines the experts that we have a long-standing relationship with, whom we continue to work with to offer you trips that embody everything you love about expedition travel; exploring the most remote coastlines and regions of our planet.
By formalising the relationship with these travel partners, we can provide new dimensions to our program whilst maintaining a strong synergy with our own fantastic expeditions. By choosing to travel on one of our Aurora Partnership Program itineraries, we are confident you will experience a voyage that meets the expectations of the truly adventurous, whilst maintaining the high standards we expect.
