The Best Wild Adventures for Your 2023 Travel Bucket List


Imagine, a full year of inspiration dedicated to adventure.

But not just any adventures: Aurora Expeditions’ small ship voyages are ideal for active adventure seekers looking for truly life changing experiences.

For over 30 years, Aurora's expert expedition team has led respectful and immersive trips that reveal the natural beauty, remarkable biodiversity, and geological wonders of some of the wildest and most remote locations on our planet. This year, they're sharing their best bucket-list destinations and experiences for 2023.

Here are some of the highlights.

Hiking and Bird Watching in Iceland, June 2023

Enjoy guided walks through some of Iceland’s most stunning terrain, across Arctic tundra, over sheer table mountains to jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords. Be on the lookout for diverse birdlife that calls the Land of Ice and Fire home. The lengthening summer days attract millions of migratory birds, and the rocky cliffs are alive with a cacophony of bird chatter from Atlantic puffins, northern Fulmars, black guillemots, little auks and Arctic terns.

Sea Kayaking in Svalbard, Norway, August 2023

The experience of sea kayaking in Svalbard is guaranteed to stir your soul. Come August, the ice has melted enough for paddlers to easily navigate this archipelago’s still-icy waters and access its more intimate coastlines. Your experienced kayak guide will help you unobtrusively spot the abundant wildlife that calls Svalbard home, including the elusive polar bear and the Arctic fox.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Antarctica, October 2023

Be among the first visitors to welcome a fresh new season in Antarctica. By October, the pristine slopes are ready for first tracks by experienced skiers and snowboarders, but first you must earn your turns by skinning up the mountain. Move higher up the slope, breaking new trails and dreaming about the sweet descent to come. As you begin your run, the iceberg-filled Antarctic waters will come back into view.
