Australian tour operator Aurora Expeditions announced 11 new 2023/2024 Antarctica and 2023 Arctic and British Isles tours, perfect for family travelers looking for a new adventure.
The Antarctica season offers dozens of departure dates for six new itineraries on the expedition ships Greg Mortimer and the new Sylvia Earle. The voyages range from nine to 24 days. Sail from Santiago, Chile, to Ushuaia, Argentina, through the Falklands. Experience an in-depth journey of the Antarctic Peninsula, or opt for a slightly shorter version of the same itinerary. Explore South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Spend time in the Weddell Sea region, or opt for a combined Arctic Circle and Weddell Sea excursion.
The five new Arctic and British Isles voyages range 14–30 days. Visit the icy landscapes of Svalbard or explore the world’s largest fjord system in Greenland. Sail the complete Northwest Passage from Toronto, Canada, to Anchorage, Alaska. Experience the Arctic Circle during a sailing between Iceland and Svalbard or discover the highlights of Ireland and Scotland.
“We look forward to bringing out the adventurer in each of our expeditioners across our upcoming voyages, with our Expedition Team helping to push their boundaries and inspiring deeper exploration, understanding and connection to some of the most important and awe-inspiring locations within the natural world,” said Hayley Peacock-Gower, chief marketing officer, Aurora Expeditions.
