Aurora Expeditions to Expand its Boundaries in Greenland

Aurora Expeditions is aiming to explore Greenland's northernmost tip, a location not yet frequented by expedition cruises. The adventure company’s purpose-built ship, the Greg Mortimer, will depart Reykjavik, Iceland on its 14-day "East Greenland Explorer" on August 15, 2023, sailing through spectacular scenery to Germania Land and on to Kronprins Christian Land in Northeast Greenland.

The Australian-owned expedition company has over 32 years of experience in purpose-driven exploration. It has used innovative ways and pushed the boundaries of discovery to provide unique, immersive experiences for its expeditioners while maintaining a light footprint. This region itself is renowned for its landscapes/icescapes and wildlife.

The voyage will depend on the weather and ice conditions, but the goal is to head north towards Kronprins Christian Land, the home of the world's only military dog sled patrol, the Sirius Patrol of Northeast Greenland National Park. The expedition team will use its expertise to design the day-to-day activities, exploring on land or cruising along spectacular fjords, making the best use of the prevailing conditions and wildlife opportunities. 

Expedition price includes overnight accommodation with ensuite and breakfast prior to the expedition; a "Golden Circle and Geothermal Energy" tour before embarkation; all meals, snacks tea and coffee during the voyage; beer, wine and soft drinks with dinner; all shore excursions and Zodiac cruises; all lectures; transfers; three-in-one waterproof polar expedition jacket; port charges, fees, gratuities and Wi-Fi. Optional activity available for this voyage is sea kayaking.
