AURORA Expeditions has today released its new season, Arctic & Beyond 2025, which includes four brand-new expeditions and seven Ultimate Adventure voyages.
The new season features a comprehensive array of departures to the unique and varied destinations of the region including Greenland, Svalbard, Norway, Iceland, and Canada’s High Arctic tundra via the Northwest Passage.
Also included in the program are Aurora’s popular voyages to destinations such as Costa Rica and the British Isles.
Aurora is making it simpler to reach the embarkation point for its Svalbard itineraries from 2025 by introducing included charter flights from Oslo to Longyearbyen.
“We are thrilled to launch our new season, where we will continue to bring our expeditioners to incredible destinations where nature reigns supreme, and where few others venture,” Chief Marketing Officer Hayley Peacock-Gower said.
“This season promises to deliver life-changing and meaningful adventures, iconic wildlife, connection with local communities, and a focus on protecting the destinations we visit; all guided by our expert team who always follows the experience.”
New expeditions include Spitsbergen: Realm of the Ice Bear, cruising round trip from Oslo aboard Greg Mortimer, and the new ‘Iceland’s Westfjords & North Coast’ expedition, cruising round trip from Reykjavik on board Sylvia Earle.
The new Southern Greenland: On the Trail of the Vikings cruises from Reykjavik to Toronto on board Sylvia Earle, and rounding out the new cruises, the Wild Landscapes of West Greenland itinerary round trips from Toronto, also on board Sylvia Earle.
Aurora is also offering seven ‘Ultimate Adventures’ – consecutive voyages which maximise exploration time, offering a broader range of experiences and added savings.
Ultimate Adventures include the 20 day Wild Svalbard, Greenland & Iceland, the 23 day Arctic Wonders: Iceland & Spitsbergen, the 26 day Greenland in Depth, and the 26 day Northern Isles: Scotland & Iceland.
“This season has been designed with adventure, immersion, and exploration in mind, while also catering for the interests of our global passengers,” Global Head of Product Justin Ewin said.
“We are also excited to be exploring new frontiers, where we intend to venture further afield in northwest Greenland than we have before.”
