The thinking person’s cruise – created for curious, experienced travellers

We all travel to explore, the learn, to understand. At Viking, we believe that travel should be more than just a trip — it should be a gateway to insight and discoveries. We design our itineraries so our guests can explore and engage with the nature, culture, science and history of their destination.

Viking Expeditions expand on that mission, journeying to the unexplored wilderness both at the far reaches of the world and in the heart of North America. We have re-envisioned expedition voyages to facilitate exploration and scientific discovery — and to create a highly enriching experience for our guests.

Join us in 2022 and beyond and experience the Viking difference in expeditions first-hand. Whether it’s a journey to the breathtaking wilderness of Antarctica and the Arctic, an exploration of the great ecosystems found within the Great Lakes of North America, or a grand journey spanning continents, these will be experiences you will treasure forever.
