About Viking River Cruises

With their uniquely designed longships offering numerous varieties of staterooms and focussing on going deep into each port’s culture and history, Viking are pioneers of river cruising. Each named after a god and styled with Scandinavian touches, Viking river ships are purpose built to conquer their waterways from the Danube and Rhine to the Nile and Mekong. Follow the course of the Nordic explorers of old and create your own adventure with Viking river cruises.

If you’re looking for an expert river cruise line, Viking River Cruises is exactly what you need. Soaring right into the cities and cultures of the land, the extravagant and phenomenal longships of Viking River Cruises are sure to give you an unforgettable river cruise experience.

With space for only 190 guests on board, these longships are light, airy and wonderfully spacious, with a level of comfort and camaraderie that is no longer found on the gradually growing giants of the sea.

Reasons to book

No matter where you are, the views you get are guaranteed to be world-class as you travel through the hearts of cities like Paris, Amsterdam and Budapest, and even the smaller villages and towns like Rudesheim or Heidelberg, known for its red sandstone castle and Gothic/Renaissance architecture.

In their quest to show you the beautiful surroundings and cultural excellence of each city, Viking River Cruises have a number of itineraries across destinations both in and along the borders of many countries, giving you both focused and varied experiences.

As part of the luxury experience, any Viking River cruise you pay for includes return flights from the UK, all on board meals, specially selected wine, beer and soft drinks, and complimentary tea and coffee. You are also made available to Viking’s wonderful cultural enrichment and excursions programme.

These excursions involve in-depth forays straight into the hearts of each city, from its art and history, to its food and culture. The difference of a Viking excursion is that it goes beyond the tours and experiences provided on other cruises.

With exceptional choice in UNESCO heritage sites, special visits to private collections and expeditions into the behind scenes of local crafts, the sights you see will always surprise and amaze you.

From the United States to Europe, Russia, Egypt and Asia, join Viking now and flow through the rivers of the world with outstanding award-winning service.

The Viking Way

While they deliver the expected and iconic (such as museums and landmarks), they also go beyond, and on most itineraries we offer a Local Life experience and a Working World experience, as well as an optional Privileged Access experience. For example, they offer a number of home-hosted visits or trips to local markets so their guests can experience Local Life ; they provide experiences like the Kinderdijk windmills near Amsterdam or porcelain factory in Meissen, so guests can gain insight into the Working World ; and they offer the option for their guests to experience Privileged Access to museums, private collections and after-hours events curated especially by Viking such as their exclusive behind-the-scenes tour partnerships with Lobkowicz Palace in Prague, Czech Republic and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
