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.
To celebrate the launch, Aurora Expeditions offers travelers savings of up to 25 percent off voyages when booking before June 30.
Embark on a family journey through The Last Frontier with Celebrity Cruises® and experience an unforgettable luxury vacation in the untouched natural beauty of Alaska. The breathtaking landscape of this pristine wilderness sets the stage for every memorable moment from up-close, awe-inspiring views of glaciers to observing native wildlife, including whales, bears, bald eagles, and moose. This corner of the world offers not only spectacular scenery, but also opportunities to learn about the history and culture of Alaska — from the native people who’ve lived here for centuries to the adventurers seeking their fortunes during the gold rush. No matter which sailing you choose, you’ll journey through the ever-popular Inside Passage — one of the most popular experiences on any Alaska vacation — and visit Hubbard Glacier or Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier.
As ecotourism and responsible travel become more popular, destinations look for ways to promote their rural and natural areas and preserve local ways of life. Agritourism — staying in farms or rural houses — is perfect for family travel, offering a chance for children to meet and interact with local people. It is not only a highly sustainable form of tourism, but also a more relaxing vacation compared to trips trudging through cities with children in tow.
