Greg and Margaret Mortimer founded Aurora Expeditions in 1991, after years of taking family and friends on adventure trips to the likes of Antarctica. With a will to make the wild and wonderful accessible to more people, this expedition cruise line was born.
More than 25 years on the core beliefs and spirit of the team have not faded, and they are as committed as ever to providing an authentic, immersive experience, while at the same time ensuring guests are safe, comfortable, and at ease. The focus on exploring the wild is seen in many aspects of Aurora Expeditions, from the design of the ships, to onboard experiences, and of course excursions.
The genuine and absolute focus on the wilderness has led to the cruise line considering ways in which they can give back the environment they so love to traverse. Committed to enhancing the efficiency of the ships, they are constantly investing in and adopting new ways in which they can reduce emissions and minimise their environmental impact as much as possible. Additionally, Aurora Expeditions provide grants to causes such as conservation projects, research, and environmental restoration.

As with just about all aspects of Aurora Expeditions, onboard activities are focused on destination immersion and wildlife. There are panoramic observation decks, a number of viewpoints, and even hydraulic viewing platforms which can fold away or protrude from the ship, allowing an unobstructed view of the surroundings. Thanks to the cruise lines' flexible itineraries, the ship will stop and allow guests to make use of these whenever some interesting wildlife passes by.
