Antarctica | Arctic | Scotland | Kimberley Coast | Patagonia


I would like to commend Aurora and all the staff, both office and those on our trip. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble and all staff were there with information and help to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Aurora to friends and acquaintances for their professional and yet friendly advice and service to trippers. Hopefully I will be able to go on another trip with you in the future.
Kay Bousfield - Weddell Sea & Antarctic Peninsula

You asked above if the trip "met" my expectations. It did not. It exceeded them. I was well prepared for this trip, having read about Antarctica and Shackleton for many years. But, the trip was more than I ever imagined. I felt happy every day! Thank you!
Jenny Eskin - In Shackleton's Footsteps

This trip far exceeded my expectations. We were blessed with wonderful weather, good sailing conditions, an expert crew and staff, and a vista unimaginable to one who has not been to Antarctica. The opportunity to get up close to so many birds and animals was amazing. Kids say that everything is awesome. This Was an AWESOME experience!!
Tony Pressland - Across the Antarctic Circle

I had high hopes for my trip and they were all exceeded. After the first day of landing I thought "it can't get any better than this", and I thought the same thing again the next day when the previous day was "outdone" and I thought it again, and again, and again.
Debbie Squires - South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey


It was a wonderful adventure for me and it opened my eyes to other possibilities for more adventures as opposed to just travelling. I enjoyed the wilderness experience and consider this to be my trip of a lifetime as it came to me "out of the blue" and I am truly grateful for the opportunity and experience.
Jacqui Marshall - Spitsbergen Odyssey

We were all so very impressed by the staff at every level. We have told all our friends about the trip and three have booked for next year. We even signed up for Scotland next year. We thought the staff were terrific in every way possible
Ann Marie Starr - Spitsbergen Odyssey


Aurora is a first class outfit. I am especially impressed by the food quality; the staff's enthusiasm and knowledge as a group, and Al Bakker (our kayak leader) knowledge and willingness to get us out there paddling.
Thomas Reynolds - Wild Scotland


Mike, Chris & Alasdair were absolutely fantastic, couldn't have been better. Their knowledge and enthusiasm was both brilliant and infectious.They really made our trip, so much more than we expected.
Bruce Campbell - Kimberley Coast

The knowledge and obvious love of the Kimberley region by all members of the expedition crew was infectious. We could not have been looked after better by the staff. Those ten days we spent in that magic, almost untouched, region of Australia so loved by our expedition leaders will remain a wonderful memory
Pam Debelle - Kimberley Coast


Lelia is an excellent tour guide because of her passion, knowledge and insight about Patagonia and Argentina. She is very well organised, generous and patient and always concerned with the welfare of the tour participants. She taught us so much about the Patagonian environment and so much about Argentinian history, culture and life.
