Aurora Expeditions launches 'Antarctica's Greatest Hits Voyages' for 2022/23

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Aurora Expeditions has launched its Antarctic 2022/23 summer season itineraries.

The 2022/23 season marks the highest number of expedition voyages that Aurora Expeditions has operated in one Antarctic season with 26 departures running across its two, state of the art, purpose-built expedition ships, Greg Mortimer and Sylvia Earle. The season launches with early bird deals of up to 30% off.

The new Antarctic expeditions will feature several add-ons to allow guests to create their perfect bucket list experience. These include snorkelling, diving, and kayaking, camping on the ice, ski touring, snow shoeing, hikes and zodiac excursions.

The new Antarctic 22/23 programme includes:

Spirit of Antarctica: Embrace the spirit of polar exploration by sailing across the Drake Passage, admiring seabirds and approaching the ice, by sea. With a chance to Zodiac-cruise through pack ice, holidaymakers can choose from many adventure options.

Departure dates:

Greg Mortimer: November 7, 2022 – November 18, 2022 (12 Days); November 17, 2022 – November 28, 2022 (12 Days)

Sylvia Earle: November 19, 2022 – November 30, 2022 (12 Days); November 29, 2022 – December 10, 2022 (12 Days); December 9, 2022 – December 20, 2022 (12 Days)

Across the Antarctic Circle: Venturing below the Antarctic Circle is the chance to enter a different world that is rarely seen, more isolated than further north, with great swathes of pack ice and icebergs. 

Departure dates:

Greg Mortimer: December 16, 2022 – December 28, 2022 (13 Days) - Christmas Voyage (Sail Only); February 1, 2023 – February 12, 2023 (12 Days) (Fly/Sail)

Sylvia Earle: January 7, 2023 – January 19, 2023 (13 Days) (Sail Only)

Antarctica Complete:  Experience unparalleled adventure and discovery on the ultimate Antarctic voyage. Travellers are transported to sub-antarctic islands rich with human history and wildlife, and then venture into the deep south of the Antarctic Peninsula, crossing the coveted Antarctic Circle. Guests will experience a zodiac cruise through vast ice-covered landscapes, visit lively penguin colonies, watch for whales and discover the rich history of this fascinating region.

Departure dates:

Sylvia Earle: March 13, 2023 – April 4, 2023 (23 days)
