The Aurora Borealis is, apart from being the Latin name of the Northern Lights, a small company doing sailing ship cruises in Northern Norway. The company was established in 1999 at the same time as the rebuilding of S/Y Goxsheim started. The first trips were made during thespring 2002 after the return from Arkhangelsk where the rigging was done. Since then we've tried to do our very best to make interesting and adventurous trips in Northern Norway, this in cooperation with agents abroad that have the same approach to this as us: No mass tourism, a touch of idealism, a lot of adventures and an experience for a lifetime. We do hope that we manage to live up to this. Aurora Borealis is the only company in Norway doing trips with a sailing ship from late February till early December.
