Far down in the southern hemisphere, Aurora Expeditions will be hosting an epic 21-night cruise to Antarctica via South Georgia in early 2021, led by the writer-photographer-mountaineer-adventurer Chris Bonington (departs March 31 2021; $19,400 per person).

The newest ship in the fleet, the Greg Mortimer (which launches next month) will travel to Elephant Island and along the peninsula, loosely following the route Shackleton himself navigated over 100 years ago. By evening, Bonington will lecture; by day, the landscape will deliver unforgettable wildlife encounters, with fur and elephant seals, penguins, albatrosses, minke and humpback whales, and more.
