Aurora Expeditions Greg Mortimer

Aurora Expeditions unveils 2021/22 programme

Aurora Expeditions has launched its 2021/22 programme aboard both the Greg Mortimer and the Sylvia Earle, the world's first passenger ships to feature the Ulstein X-BOW.

The new programme includes a variety of new itineraries and destinations, including Antarctica and the South Sandwich Islands, Ireland and Costa Rica.

Victoria Primrose, global head of marketing for the company, said: “We're thrilled to launch our new program that will be run across our two world-class, purpose-built expedition ships. The variety of our unique small group expeditions that allow passengers to experience otherwise extremely difficult to reach destinations, has resulted in phenomenal demand.

“With the delivery of our second purpose-built expedition ship launching in October 2021, we have the ability to widen our offering. Whilst polar voyages remain core to the program, we have introduced new itineraries and destinations such as Ireland and Costa Rica which will offer our customers breathtaking experiences in some of the most biodiverse and impressive places on the planet.

“We'll also continue to offer a broad range of adventure activities on all of our voyages, from sea kayaking to rock climbing and polar diving1, so our guests can customise their trips and get the most out of their time on board.”

Launching with the new 2021/22 programme is an exclusive early bird deal offering a saving of up to 30% on new voyages booked and deposited by March 31, 2020, or until sold out, whichever comes first.

Some of the main highlights of the new Aurora Expeditions 21/22 program include:

New South Georgia & Antarctica Odyssey ft. South Sandwich Islands - 25 days, sailing on the Sylvia Earle. On this epic voyage, not only will passengers explore the famed white continent and far-flung South Georgia, they will also sail to the South Sandwich Islands, a chain of remote and seldom-visited volcanic islands. Exploring with experts and by zodiac, this voyage is both unique and true to Aurora Expeditions' spirit of adventure.

New Guanacaste, Costa Rica - seven days, sailing on the Greg Mortimer. Costa Rica is blessed with abundant nature, pristine beaches and great biodiversity. In Guanacaste, passengers will explore a slice of Costa Rica rarely visited by expedition vessels including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Guanacaste Conservation Area, hiking in wildlife-rich rainforests and venturing to peaks in Rincón de la Vieja National Park, where archaeological sites offer a glimpse into Costa Rica's ancient past.
