Viking developed the modern river cruise industry, put a new spin on luxury cruising, and now has established itself as a major player in the world of exploration cruising to the Arctic, Antarctic, Great Lakes and Canada and Galapagos.
Please see below for Viking’s new, exciting itineraries.
We just made our first Bucketeer booking on the new Viking Octantis - scheduled to sail in 2022 - and the Great Lakes cruise is already heavily sold with only a handful of seats remaining on the optional 5-night Churchill, Manitoba Polar Bear post cruise extension.
Now through August 31, you will receive up to $2000 cruise savings and free or reduced air based on your itinerary and travel dates.
Imagine exploring the world’s most remote destinations with all the comfort and elegance on an expedition ship built specifically to allow you to immerse yourself in these regions.
Onboard you’ll learn from guest experts and Viking Scientists about the destinations with enriching lectures on geology, glaciology, marine biology, ornithology and more; gain an overview of activities to come during daily briefings; join the Viking Resident Scientists in the Laboratory or learn more at your leisure in the specially curated library. Ashore, immerse yourself on a deeper level by assisting in fieldwork or interacting in experiential activities. Track birds to help identify migratory patterns, walk within view of captivating wildlife, or take a camera or field microscope ashore alongside the expedition leader to capture landscapes untouched by human hands.
