7 March

Setting sail from King George Island

The relative proximity of King George Island to South America, together with the fact that around 10% of the island is ice-free, means that there are several research stations clustered here, along with an airfield. It's the biggest island in the South Shetlands archipelago, and is also home to the world's most southerly Russian Orthodox church!

15 March

Arriving in Punta Arenas

The weather-beaten city of Punta Arenas is a laid back and welcoming place, in spite of its inhospitable location on the shores of the Strait of Magellan. Nearby attractions include penguin colonies and the dramatic scenery of Torres del Paine National Park, while beyond the southern horizon lie the frozen wastes of Antarctica.

Aurora Expeditions - Greg Mortimer in Antarctica

Aurora Expeditions - Kayaking in Spitsbergen

The Greg Mortimer is an exciting new purpose-built expedition ship with a revolutionary design, which joined the Aurora Expeditions fleet in 2019.

What we love

Just take a look at the pictures - quite different from anything we have seen before, with a revolutionary new patented X-BOW design which has a number of benefits. Not only does it increase passenger comfort by eliminating slamming in heavy seas, but also the journey is speeded up so uncomfortable rides in heavy seas are minimised. This also results in environmental benefits, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

On board, Aurora Expeditions passengers will enjoy the company's established style - a comfortable, friendly and laid-back vibe in the company of like-minded travellers, for whom the time ashore is everything. The focus is on small group exploration, with a commitment to getting off the ship as much as possible for up close and personal encounters with wilderness and wildlife.
