The World's Great Rivers


The Danube, Rhine, Elbe, Seine, Rhône, Moselle, Main, Douro – these are the legendary European rivers you can sail on a Viking cruise ship with an itinerary that will leave you fully satisfied in every aspect. You will enter the heart of Europe via grand waterways that venture into storybook villages, must-see cultural centers, and jaw-droppingly picturesque landscapes that cannot be done justice by photographs alone. You simply must see these places for yourself to fully appreciate their magic. Travel to The Netherlands, Austria, Germany, France, Hungary, and Switzerland in a way very few get to experience, thanks to innovative Viking Longships – the newest and largest river fleet in Europe – which feature premium amenities, river cruising’s first-ever true suites, and al fresco dining surrounded by the exquisite, historic beauty of Europe. Small ships allow for greater immersion in the cruising experience, without all the hustle and bustle of larger ships that can sometimes overwhelm the senses.

Destination Focused


Every destination on a Viking river cruise is singular in its magnetism and charm. In Germany, you will be captivated by vivid wine-producing villages that look straight out of a storybook. In Lyon, France, the culinary delights that await you simply cannot be described in terms that do them justice. The grand monuments, historic landmarks, and iconic sights of Paris will leave you breathless. The Netherlands enchant with fairytale windmills that you won’t be able to stop photographing. Of course, wine culture is alive and well in the quintas of Portugal’s Douro Valley and in France’s famed Beaujolais and Bordeaux. Enjoy an invigorating history lesson in historic Wittenberg, home to Martin Luther, and medieval Prague, the “City of a Thousand Spires.” In Vienna, classical music provides endless inspiration and serenity when you need it most.
