Sailing in arctic Norway
Sailing in the north, in arctic Norway, is a unique and special adventure! Join Boreal Yachting for a week watching whales by day, hunting for the northern lights by night, enjoying local food and visiting breathtaking locations on the way.
By day - Whale Watching
During the winter season we are invaded by various whales feeding themselves on herring and other fishes. In a sail yacht you can get incredibly close to these fantastic animals using sails instead of engine, and they are practically only one arm length away. Whales are curious creatures and will often come and say hello as they see the yacht as a potential new "buddy".
By night - The Northern Lights
To see the northern lights is a spectacular experience. We sail within the northern-light-zone and a sailboat is the perfect place to get a closer look without light pollution. Each appearance of the northern lights is unique. Often you see three green bands across the night sky. Or the lights come as flickering curtains orrollingsmoke.
The colour is a luminous green, often with a hint of pink along the edge, and occasionally with a deep violet centre. If there is a lot of activity up there, the northern lights explode for a minute or two in a corona. The next minute it is all over, and you ask yourself whether this was real or just a dream.
