Why choose Aurora Expeditions ?


From the start, Aurora Expeditions was destined to be different. Co-founders Greg and Margaret Mortimer had a passion for adventure, exploring wild places and sharing the experience with friends and in 1991, Aurora Expeditions, named in honour of Sir Douglas Mawson’s ship, was born.

Their aim was simple - to take small groups of travellers on voyages of discovery to regions that inspired them, thereby creating lifelong ambassadors for the preservation and protection of these sacred places. More than two decades later, that pioneering spirit burns just as brightly, as does their preference for small-group, personal expeditions.

At sea, all of their expeditions are on ships of 60-passengers or less. They are one of the only companies operating trips of this size. Less people means more solitude and greater flexibility if tides, currents, ice or weather dictate a schedule change. And because they have less people to ferry ashore, they often make more landings.

Their treks in Patagonia are limited to 14 expeditioners each. This ensures personal attention and a nice mix of people to share the adventure.

They make the most of their size advantage to create intimate expeditions varying in length from 10 to 26 days. Simply choose the region you’d like to explore, the amount of time you’ve got and what activities you enjoy. Focus on one destination or combine back-to-back trips for the ultimate adventure.

You’ll be accompanied by expedition staff they believe are the world’s best. Remote area specialists, their on-board lectures entertain and expand your knowledge.

Whether you’re joining them for the first time or returning for another thrilling adventure, their original goals remain unchanged. Explore wild places that stir the soul, offer personal attention on unforgettable expeditions and welcome new friends into the Aurora family.
