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!
WHY TRAVEL WITH AURORA
Aurora Expeditions pioneered ship-based adventures over 25 years ago and we remain committed to small, low-impact groups keen to not just see, but experience our range of remote destinations.
Our small ships carry fewer passengers than almost any other operator and allow a truly intimate experience with your destination.
Our expedition staff are experienced, enthusiastic and among the best in the industry – they are our secret to success.
Flexibility & Freedom
From impromptu wildlife displays to adverse weather, our flexible itineraries allow us to cater for whatever comes our way.
With 25 years’ experience and over 250 voyages to Antarctica alone, our team knows how to deliver a successful expedition.
Whether it’s a polar jacket and photo book, or included flights and tours, our inclusions are what most would consider extras.
Spirit of Adventure
We’ve pioneered new routes, offered exclusive firsts and offer a range of optional activities for the ultimate adventure.
Education and conservation are our passion. Our aim is to create lifelong ambassadors for the protection of all wilderness areas.
Fully-servicing travel agency
We can take care of all your travel needs. Flights, accommodation, tours and transfers: we’re a ‘one stop’ shop for your trip of lifetime.
