Aurora is a five star luxury private yacht that provides weekly charters, accommodates max 8 passengers and cruises the beautiful Dutch inland waterways.

With Aurora we chose cruising in Holland because:

- It is a land of super friendly and relaxed people & a place where everybody speaks English;

- It has amazingly delightful countryside with picturesque houses and offers plenty of quaint sites & romantic settings which make it an ideal family and friend get-together destination;

- There are innumerable events, festivals and art exhibitions apart from the traditional sites and attractions (cheese, flowers, windmills)

-  Generally welcoming atmosphere makes it your favorite home away from home! 

This trip of your lifetime will focus on your well-being as well as the country’s gems such as art, history, music and food and will combine it with a luxury 7-day barging experience aboard Aurora! Join us to discover a world of enchantment, relaxation and true happiness! Life is too short not to make the best out of it!

She is a unique place to escape from busy and tumultuous city life. Embarking aboard you will feel immediately at ease in this oasis of serenity.

Our cuisine, based on seasonal products is authentic and creative, and appealing both to the eye as well as being delicious to the palate – it will procure emotion and pleasure (and we do not forget those with specific dietary needs).

All fresh from the local markets along the way- the best of what Holland has to offer from her excellent bounty.
