Dreaming of an incredible adventure? Our small-ship expeditions will take you to some of the most hidden and spectacular corners of the planet. 

You will be able to catch the spectacular natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights, or explore Scotland’s magnificent coastline steeped in the region’s history and legends.   Or perhaps you would like to experience the jaw-dropping beauty of the Norwegian coastline and sail north across the imaginary line that marks the Arctic Circle.

Plus, we will be journeying to an entirely new region – the Islands of the Atlantic, to explore the dramatic features of Cape Verde, the Canary Islands and the Azores.

For a limited time, save up to 25%* on select Arctic and global expeditions in 2023.

You are in good hands with our expert, international expedition team as you journey to some of the most remote corners of this planet, where polar bears roam across the sea ice in the Arctic.

In the Arctic and British Isles, Aurora Expeditions’ expeditioners are also being given a wealth of new wild and remote voyages to choose from, all sailing on our brand-new vessel, the Sylvia Earle.commented Hayley Peacock-Gower, CMO of Aurora Expeditions.  

Our ships, the Greg Mortimer and the Sylvia Earle are designed for discovery with an average of 132 passengers. Travelling in small groups means that, unlike on larger ships, you can join every excursion, getting into the environment and exploring on shore.

Why go to the Arctic & Global with us?

30 years

Our Experience

It's been more than 30 years since our co-founders, Greg and Margaret Mortimer started taking small groups of friends and keen travellers to Antarctica. Aboard small, ice-strengthened vessels, they took groups of intrepid explorers to places that few, if any, had been before, pioneering a long list of 'firsts' along the way.

Spirit of Adventure

No matter where we are, we encourage a true sense of exploration. Zodiac cruise into a craggy cove to take a closer look at rockhopper penguins scaling a cliff, or take a guided hike across the tundra in search of the elusive arctic fox. You can also choose from a large selection of optional activities to make the most of your adventure.

Small Groups

Travelling in small groups (average 132 passengers) means that, unlike on larger ships, you can join every excursion, getting into the environment and exploring via shore landings, Zodiac cruises, kayaking or diving. With a staff-to-passenger ratio of approx. 1:8, means more one-on-one time with your expedition team.

Our highly acclaimed expedition specialists are some of the best in the business. Many are recognised world leaders in their fields, and they enthusiastically share their knowledge to ensure that each moment you spend with us is interesting and educational.

Flexibility & Freedom

We stop for breaching whales! Our itineraries are designed to be adaptable. If weather or sea ice blocks our way we have a Plan B, C and D! We're always on the lookout for new places to explore, and we're not afraid to adjust our schedule to make the most of unexpected wildlife displays.
