Aurora Expeditions Listens to Its Guests and launches ‘Iceland Circumnavigation’ and ‘West Greenland Explorer’ Voyages

Aurora Expeditions, a world leader in polar voyaging, has responded to guest feedback by launching two new itineraries for its 2020/21 Arctic programme. Flexible in their approach to expeditionary voyaging, and crafting itineraries that focus on the environment and wildlife, their customers have always been an intrinsic part of the voyaging experience.

In light of this commitment to their clientele, Aurora Expeditions asked for their help to decide which itineraries they would like included in the 2020/21 programme. Close to 1,000 people voted and chose the ‘West Greenland Explorer’ and ‘Iceland Circumnavigation’ as the top two itineraries to undertake with Aurora Expeditions on board their new ship Greg Mortimer launching in October 2019.

Iceland Circumnavigation

Departing 2 June, 2020 | 11 days | Reykjavik – Reykjavik

Over the course of 11 days, Iceland Circumnavigation allows guests to chart the dramatic, undulating volcanic topography of the region. Voyagers will discover some of the most remote bays and fjords, take in the breathtaking sights of Europe’s largest glacier, black sand beaches, glacial lagoons and a chance to spot whales in Húsavík. During this expedition, wildlife enthusiasts will experience the abundant birdlife and reindeer population of Vatnajökull National Park. Those seeking the ultimate active adventure can hike to mountain peaks and go sea-kayaking (additional cost applies). After intrepid adventuring, voyagers have the chance to soak in the geothermal waters of Mývatn Nature Baths.

Aurora Expeditions (| 0808 189 2005) offer an 11-day Iceland Circumnavigation itinerary from £6,300 per person based on two people sharing.  

West Greenland Explorer

Departing 18 May, 2020 | 11 days | Nuuk -Nuuk

West Greenland Explorer offers an intrepid experience through Greenland exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat Icefjord, with an optional helicopter flight over the immense icefjord (additional cost applies). Aurora Expedition explorers will take Zodiac-cruises along the striking coastline, crossing icebergs and breath-taking glaciers, observing the crystal-clear waters and watching for whales as they go. Greenland’s capital, Nuuk, is famous for its cosmopolitanism; brightly-coloured houses and up-and-coming boutiques & restaurants. Here, guests will discover the cultural histories of the Inuit community at the Nuuk Art Museum, gaze at ancient artefacts in the National Museum, and uncover the antiquities of the 1849 cathedral.
