Setting sail from Reykjavik

Capital of Iceland and gateway to this extraordinary volcanic island, modern Reykjavik is home to an impressive collection of interesting attractions and places of historic significance. Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja church, relax in a thermal pool, potter around the old harbour, and with 24 hour daylight in the summer months, you can play golf at midnight, or choose the perfect place to view the midnight sun such as the lighthouse at Grotta or on the waterfront by Sólfar - the Sun Voyager sculpture. If you're like us, you will find travelling out of Reykjavik by land or sea to be unforgettable.

Don't miss

Take a boat tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to see the numerous whales of Faxaflói Bay: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales.

Arriving in Toronto

Toronto is the fourth largest city in North America, a dynamic and culturally rich metropolis that hugs the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. The city's cosmopolitan residents, drawn from over 200 nations, have gifted the city a wealth of ethnic cuisines, and the foodie scene is a major attraction. A busy calendar of events includes the famous Toronto International Film Festival in September, and the city boasts some excellent museums and galleries. Toronto is also just two hours from Niagara Falls, and serves as a jumping off point for cruises around the Great Lakes.

 Aurora Expeditions - Sylvia Earle
Sylvia Earle Balcony Stateroom
 Aurora Expeditions - Sylvia Earle

Named in honour of the accomplished marine biologist, oceanographer and explorer, the Sylvia Earle is AE Expeditions' second purpose-built expedition ship with a revolutionary new design.

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, AE 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.

Capacity 132 Guests
Crew 80 Staff
Style Relaxed, authentic, cosy - a totally unpretentious and educational experience for true adventurers.
Inclusions
  • All meals, snacks, tea and coffee
  • Beer and house wine with dinner
  • Shore excursions
  • Onboard lecture programme
  • Polar Parka and boots on polar voyages
  • Port taxes
