The launch of the new guide comes in time to mark 25 years since the company’s first foray to Antarctica. The milestone will be celebrated throughout 2017, along with a long list of exciting ‘firsts’ the company has pioneered since their launch. From their inaugural Antarctic voyage, to scuba diving and now polar snorkelling, Aurora Expeditions is set to continue to inspire travellers through their small-group philosophy, passionate teams and educative approach.
‘We are so proud that Aurora’s unique style has proven to be the number one option for many travellers over the years.’ says Aurora Expeditions Marketing Manager, Emma Savage. ‘Our small group size means more flexibility and access to more remote areas, as well as a personal approach that our customers truly appreciate. We are very excited to celebrate 25 years of exploration in 2017 and have no doubt our new Expedition Guide will inspire many to join us and share our passion of adventure.’
