Decades of experience have given us an unrivalled level of expertise and the ability to create thoroughly immersive journeys. In most destinations you’ll enjoy at least one included excursion led by local guides who are passionate about their subject and eager to share their knowledge on local history, art, architecture and culture.

On board and ashore, Viking’s Culture Curriculum adds even greater insight and pleasure to your exploration, from expert demonstrations to talks and performances.

Sophisticated, stylish and so very comfortable, our award-winning ships boast Nordic-inspired design with elegant, wide-open spaces and luxurious furnishings. A welcoming lounge and bar with cosy corners and panoramic views. Sundecks with shaded areas to enjoy the glorious passing scenery. Calm, contemporary ensuite staterooms with a river view. And on Viking Longships, the Aquavit Terrace at the bow of the ship – a stunning space in which to enjoy a drink or a meal al fresco.

On every journey we invite you to discover exciting regional dishes cooked to perfection. Our restaurants are open-seating with an informal dress code, so the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Mouth-watering meals on board, and specially-selected wines and beers are all included with your lunch and dinner, along with tea and coffee day and night. Exceptional standards and great value are the hallmarks of every Viking river cruise.
