The Antarctic Peninsula’s west coast offers ice-clad peaks towering over a maze of protected channels; the east coast a vast icecap and strange, fossil-rich islands. From spring to fall, this stunning landscape becomes furious with life as penguins, seals, petrels, and whales arrive to feed and breed.
Welcome to our world of expedition travel. Unlike ‘standard’ travel companies, Aurora Expeditions specialises in destinations off the beaten track. So far off in fact, that often there is no track!
At your service is a team with more than 150 years of expedition travel experience. Collectively, we’ve planned and executed over 500 expeditions to the most spectacular places on Earth, often pioneering routes that others now follow.
Thanks to the inquisitive and adventurous nature of our expeditioners, we continue to develop itineraries that explore our planets hidden recesses.
In small groups, we travel from Pole to Pole, and many places in between. Browse our current destinations above to find your next adventure of a lifetime.
Expeditions tend to book out well in advance, so plan ahead and contact one of our Expedition Experts
The ship's crew and Aurora staff were indefatigable in their attention to detail and were wonderfullBruce Mitchell, Australia - Alaska’s Inside Passage, 2016
Major advantage Aurora has over other companies is their ship size, please don't change that, I want to get to know my other 50 or so passengers, not so easy on a ship which carries over a 100 passengers.Vicki Gould, New Zealand - In Shackleton's Footsteps, 2016
