This year Aurora are generously offering a choice of two spectacular expeditions.

The winning bidder will choose between experiencing the West Greenland Explorer  (18 - 28 May, 2020) where nearly 24 hours of daylight will allow you to witness the great melt with rivers gushing, sea ice breaking up, and glaciers calving ... and that’s without even mentioning the whales.

Or, discovering the staggering beauty of Iceland, Svalbard, and Jan Mayen  (12 - 22 June, 2020). See dramatic bird cliffs and puffins nesting on ledges, marvel at volcanic geology, Zodiac cruise through impressive glacier-filled fjords, strike out on tundra hikes, search for polar bears hunting and walrus hauled out on pack ice.
