Solo Travellers, Families & Groups
Travelling on board a small ship in Antarctica is perfect for solo travellers, families and other small groups. Read on to find out how we can help you with your Antarctic adventure, no matter your group size!
Travelling Solo in Antarctica
One of the best solo adventures you could have is a small ship expedition to Antarctica! In a small group, you’ll enjoy getting to know your fellow passengers. Whether out on deck, in a Zodiac or in our communal bar and dining areas, you’re bound to strike up a conversation in no time.
Aurora Expeditions also offers a cabin sharing service for solo travellers, which means you can avoid paying single supplements if you're willing to share your room with a fellow traveller. Our team will match you with another solo passenger of the same gender and if we can’t find anyone, you’ll still only pay the twin price. Aboard the Greg Mortimer, there are a limited number of dedicated solo cabins available at a special rate of 1.25 times the twin share rate. Other single-use cabins are available for a surcharge of 1.7 times the twin share rate.
Antarctica for Families
Antarctica is the perfect destination for a family adventure. Whether you have curious little ones or are booking that final family holiday before your teenagers leave the nest, we have a voyage to suit your family.
Older kids may enjoy some of our activities such as sea kayaking, whilst a family camp out on the snow is perfect for smaller children.
As our vessels are small, we are unable to provide any dedicated children’s entertainment facilities (apart from the spectacular view from the window!) or child-minding service on board. In the past, we’ve found that young expeditioners bring a wonderful sense of excitement to our voyages and our team and fellow passengers have greatly enjoyed having them aboard.
All children are required to be supervised by their guardians throughout the entire trip.
Aurora Expeditions welcome groups on board our expeditions to Antarctica. From birding and photography clubs to university students and walking groups, we can cater for a wide range of interests and activities.
If you have a group of keen travellers interested in travelling to Antarctica, we are happy to discuss your options. For groups of 10 or more, we are happy to provide you with a special rate. Contact us for more details.
We don't usually go on organised tours. Of course Antarctica had to be an exception. I am glad we chose Aurora, everything was great.D. Cotogno, Alaska, USA - Across the Antarctic Circle, 2016

The breadth of knowledge of the whole team was fantastic. And the love and enthusiasm they had for Antarctica and South Georgia was so obvious.Cheryl Ryce - South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey, 2015
