Aurora Expeditions Polar Cruises

A Passion for Adventure

Since inception, Aurora Expeditions were destined to be different and that still remains true today. In fact their passion for adventure & wilderness exploration burns just as brightly now as it did 25 years ago.

Aurora believe small groups are the best way to see the highlights of the world. Smaller, ice-strengthened ships allow for the flexibility to land at the best place, thus allowing guests to see the best of nature.

Each expedition has a team among the world’s best. These remote area specialists entertain and expand your knowledge with, for instance, lectures onboard.

The Greg Mortimer:

Sailing from October 2019 this ground-breaking state-of-the-art vessel is indeed one of the most advanced expedition ships in the world.

Carrying just 100 passengers, the 104-metre Greg Mortimer is named after Aurora’s co-founder. A renowned adventurer, he successfully climbed Mount Everest without oxygen in 1984. Built to world-class polar standards, the Greg Mortimer is designed for travel and adventure, similarly to her name-sake.

Polar Pioneer:

Fully refurbished in 2000, Polar Pioneer used to be a research vessel & is now ideal for Arctic exploration. Small, nimble and carrying just 54 passengers, this consequently allows a much more personal experience in each destination.
