In this quest for unparalleled adventure, introducing your clients to Aurora Expeditions’ unique itineraries in remote destinations including the Antarctic Circle is an opportunity that should not be missed.

Join us as we explore the wildest region of the southernmost continent and discover the key elements that make Aurora Expeditions the premier choice for those considering an Antarctic Circle expedition.

The Allure of the Antarctic Circle

The Antarctic Circle is a region defined by an imaginary line located at approximately latitude 66°33′ South. It is one of the most remote and challenging destinations on earth to reach – and therefore, one of the most exclusive. The vast, icy expanses and stunning natural wonders create an otherworldly atmosphere that beckons intrepid travellers seeking a one-of-a-kind experience that they can take enormous pride in.

Diverse Wildlife

The Antarctic Circle region is synonymous with pristine landscapes and abundant wildlife. It is a vast, untouched wilderness where nature reigns supreme, noticeably colder and wilder than the rest of the continent.

Witness iconic wildlife in their natural habitat, including penguins feeding their ravenous chicks and plump seals lounging on ice floes while countless seabird species circle overhead. The waters in this region are rich with krill, meaning more opportunities to spot whales, including humpbacks and minkes.

Icy Landscapes

The Antarctic Circle features stunning mountain ranges and expansive glaciers, creating a dramatic and awe-inspiring backdrop for travellers. It also showcases breathtaking ice formations, from towering icebergs to intricate ice sculptures. Clients with an appreciation for natural beauty and geology will be captivated by the stunning ice landscapes on offer.

Early Explorer History

The region has a lot of historical significance, and is dotted with the remnants of early polar exploration, including huts and landmarks from legendary expeditions. Our Expedition Team will help clients with an interest in history connect with the legacy of explorers who first ventured into this challenging terrain.

Join the Club

Crossing the imaginary Antarctic Circle line is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and travel milestone for many. Onboard, the moment will be celebrated with a toast out on the deck (weather permitting). Travellers who accomplish this join a small group of lucky adventurers who have ventured to one of the most remote and challenging environments on Earth, and earn the ultimate bragging rights and stories for when they return home.
