Combining the ancient history of the Scottish Isles, majestic fjords and quaint fishing villages of Norway’s rugged coastline, and towering cliffs and glaciers beyond the Arctic Circle, expeditioners will see pods of whales, vast herds of walruses and exceptional birdlife, along with the chance to search for the mighty polar bear.
“More than 30 years in the making, Aurora Expeditions has a track record for pioneering authentic discovery and adventure in the polar regions, and respectful travel is at the heart of our ethos,” says Chief Marketing Officer Hayley Peacock-Gower.
“This special ‘Across the Arctic Circle’ voyage with Greg Mortimer as Expedition Leader on board the Greg Mortimer – as with all of our Arctic itineraries – will reveal the wonders of this magnificent polar region,” she adds.
Explore the Arctic
While more travellers are discovering Antarctica, the Arctic is a lesser-known, but equally fascinating, polar destination. Comprising five major regions – Iceland, Jan Mayen, Svalbard, Greenland and the Northwest Passage – all can be explored during Aurora Expeditions’ annual Arctic season.
