By ,   July 30, 2017 ,   Cruise Industry

The southern hemisphere summer season 2017 marks a quarter of a century since cruise line Aurora Expeditions took a small group of adventurers on an expedition to the icy continent for the first time.

Since that inaugural 1992 adventure, Aurora has operated more than 200 expeditions to Antarctica, offering passengers the chance to discover the remote wilderness of the continent and follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest explorers of the world.

To mark this milestone event, Aurora Expeditions offers a special anniversary expedition that honours a long list of polar explorers and adventurers and pays homage to Aurora’s founders Greg and Margaret Mortimer. 

The 18-day ‘25 Year Anniversary’ expedition to Antarctica & South Georgia departs Ushuaia on December 27, 2017 onboard the 54-passenger Polar Pioneer and concludes on January 13, 2018 in Santiago.

To celebrate the special anniversary, Aurora Expeditions offer a saving of up to $3,000 per couple across a range of cruises during their anniversary season, including the ’25 Year Anniversary’ expedition. Reservations must be made before September 30, 2017 in order to take advantage of the exclusive anniversary offer.
