Aurora Expeditions has announced a Founder’s Voyage Across the Arctic Circle in May 2023 will be led by the Australian expedition line’s Greg Mortimer (OAM). The 15-day adventure aboard his namesake, Greg Mortimer, will sail from Scotland to Norway, visiting the remote Orkney and Shetland Islands, the Norwegian coastline and the frozen wilderness of Bear Island and Svalbard.
“I can’t wait to bathe in that exquisite Arctic light once again. It’s been a while,” said Mortimer. “This time it will be even more surreal, being on a ship with my own name on it.”
Expeditioners will be immersed in heritage from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, from the Scots to the Vikings. They will explore fjords, fishing villages and myriad islands, and be blown away by the birdlife, glistening glaciers and towering cliffs. Or spot whales, walrus and the elusive polar bear.
“We are thrilled Greg is to lead this fascinating Arctic journey. He is an inspiration to all who travel with him,” said Micheal Heath, Chief Executive Officer. “His exploring and guiding expertise, gleaned over three decades, will be an enlightening experience and highlight many a little-known treasure, inlet, and wildlife experience for his fellow expeditioners.”
The Founder’s voyage, Across the Arctic Circle expedition is priced from AU$21,095 per person for an Aurora Stateroom Twin Share.
