FRESH FACES: Aurora Expeditions’ Anthony Flores

What’s the cool, ‘crazy’ thing Aurora Expeditions started doing before its rivals? New business development manager for Australia and NZ, ANTHONY FLORES, reveals all...


• Where is the last place you travelled?

I last travelled to the national parks in Utah, including Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Moab and Monument Valley.


• Where are you going next?

I’m very excited to head off to Antarctica to experience Aurora Expeditions’ brand-new ship Greg Mortimer.

The ship will feature the patented Ulstein X-Bow - innovative marine technology that allows for gentler sea crossings, improved comfort and reduced emissions.


• Besides your passport, what’s one thing you always take with you on your travels? 

I always bring a large packet of Hydralyte. It keeps me healthy and hydrated while I’m on-the-go.


• Why did you join Aurora Expeditions?

The more I read about Aurora Expeditions the more I wanted to be part of the company.

I’ve always worked for big companies, so having the opportunity to join a focused brand with an incredible product appealed to me.

We have a great team at Aurora Expeditions and I am very excited to be part of it.


• Tell us something people might not know about the company?

Aurora Expeditions have been pioneers when it comes to expedition travel.

They started Polar kayaking, diving and snorkelling in the polar regions, among other activities.

Back when Aurora Expeditions started these activities it seemed crazy to dive in sub-zero waters but now everyone is doing it!


• What’s the main thing people should know about Aurora?

Aurora Expeditions is focused on taking small groups of travellers on voyages of discovery.

Thanks to our small ships, guests can enjoy lots of time up close and personal with their stunning surroundings.

Aurora Expeditions’ brand-new ship, Greg Mortimer, is named after our founder, who was one of the first two Australians to successfully climb Mount Everest.


• What’s your top travel tip?

Put the phone and camera away for a while and watch the world through your own lens.
