Aurora Expeditions has unveiled its new 2023/24 Antarctica season giving adventurous travellers even more options for exploring the white continent, as well as a new selection of 2023 Arctic and British Isles voyages aboard the Sylvia Earle.
Aurora Expeditions’ new Antarctica season features dozens of departures across both vessels in the company’s fleet, purpose-built expedition ships Greg Mortimer and the brand-new sister-ship Sylvia Earle. Aurora’s classic voyages feature alongside six new and innovative itineraries such as the Antarctic Explorer Express, a 9-day voyage tailored for travellers seeking a briefer adventure to the Antarctic Peninsula, all the way to Circle and Weddell, an 18-day voyage aiming to tick two major Antarctica boxes off travellers’ lists – crossing the Antarctic Circle and venturing into the infamous Weddell Sea.

Aurora Expeditions has released several new itineraries to the Arctic and British Isles during 2023, along with a Svalbard in Depth journey that offers extra time for deeper exploration in the region; Iceland, Jan Mayen, Svalbard offer a combination of breathtaking contrasts as passengers sail across the Arctic Circle to the High Arctic.
The Epic Northwest Passage voyage will attempt to sail the full length of the Northwest Passage from West Greenland to Nome, Alaska over 30 days. In the British Isles, a new Ireland & Scotland Discovery expedition will explore Ireland’s rugged west coast, the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland Islands over 17 days.
“We are thrilled to launch our new Antarctica season, where we have continued to build on our pioneering heritage in exploring this region,” said Hayley Peacock-Gower, CMO of Aurora Expeditions.
“Alongside our well-loved classic itineraries, we have continued to innovate and offer new and varied ways for our expeditioners to discover this awe-inspiring destination.
“Whether it be via our numerous fly-sail options, voyages ranging from 9-24 days, or the introduction of new itinerary combinations that are not offered by other operators in the market. 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,” Peacock-Gower said.
The new season complements the previously announced 2023 voyages including the company’s first expedition to the Islands of the Atlantic, including Cape Verde, the Canary Islands and the Azores, while other new highlight itineraries include the Northern Lights Explorer, providing opportunities to witness the natural phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis, and Across the Arctic Circle, combining three unique worlds on one unforgettable journey from Scotland to Norway.
Alongside the season launch, Aurora is offering an early-bird discount of up to 25% off sailings for new reservations made by 30 June 2022.
