Viking River Cruises

Viking River Cruises

Calm waters will lazily bring you inland towards amazing destinations. Down the Rhine lay Switzerland, France, Germany, and the Netherlands, while the Danube holds the finest cities in Romania, Hungary, and Austria. And this doesn’t even include their sailings in Asia, Egypt, and Russia.

Viking River cruises sail them all, enlightening their guests to the history, culture, and beauty of every port. Here are a few of their current cruises on shallower waters.
