VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

Meet the people who thrive on the water’s edge of the Faroe archipelago, and encounter polar fox, tern, eider ducks and members of the whale family in Iceland’s majestic, distant north.

Day 1 Bergen, Norway

Step on board your ship to begin your journey. Encircled by majestic mountains, fjords and glaciers, Bergen was home to Viking sagas. With your ship berthed next to Bryggen wharf, a UNESCO Site, easily stroll along its waterfront. This evening mingle with the locals and dine ashore, as we will be spending the night in port.

Day 2 Bergen, Norway

Awake in Bergen and further explore this Norwegian treasure. See the beautiful 18th-century wooden houses, and visit the Hanseatic Museum on your included tour. Perhaps take an excursion to Troldhaugen, the home of Edvard Grieg, Norway’s famous composer. Or take a trip to the top of Mt. Ulriken, where you can savor an Ulriken bun, a cinnamon pastry, with a view that is equally as indulgent. Gain an insider’s view of Norway’s shipbuilding culture and fish farming industry on our optional excursion.

Day 3 Flåm, Norway

Through breathtaking fjords, your ship glides into the village of Flåm. Spend the day soaking up majestic views—from Vassbygda Lake to picturesque Vassbygdi and Aurland. Board the famous Flåm Railway for a train ride that climbs nearly 3,000 feet. Stop at the Kjosfossen waterfall and continue to the Mølstertunet open air museum, in Voss. Lunch on the famed Hotel Stalheim’s veranda, and gaze at the Naerøyfjord, a UNESCO Site.

Day 4 Ålesund, Norway

Admire Ålesund’s colorful Art Nouveau facades by foot. After the city was destroyed by fire in 1904, it was rebuilt with the support of German Kaiser Wilhelm, who often vacationed here. The architectural style of the day, Jugend, prevails in the town center. Alternately, you may visit spectacular Nordic islands via a vast coastal network of bridges and tunnels, or join a Norwegian family in their home for coffee and a snack to learn firsthand about daily life in this scenic place.

Day 5 Geiranger, Norway

Cruise into the tiny village of Geiranger via the Geirangerfjord, one of Norway’s most spectacular fjords. If you would like magnificent bird’s-eye views of this magical setting, join an included tour to Eagle’s Bend, perched 2,000 feet above the village. It is a thrilling drive marked by 11 hairpin turns and incredible panoramas. Immerse yourself in the great outdoors on an optional tour to witness spectacular waterfalls or journey through the fjords by kayak.

Day 6 Cruise the North Sea

The North Sea has long been central to Europe’s history. From Viking settlement and medieval trade to international war and modern-day oil production, some of the continent’s most pivotal moments have unfolded on its stage. Learn more about this body of water during an enriching lecture. Relax on board with tea in the Wintergarden or find your inner calm with yoga on the Sports Deck.

VIKING SUN

Viking is bringing their wildly successful river cruise experience to the ocean with the Viking Star, their first ocean ship. The ship takes many cues from the river ships, including the intimacy of sailing with fewer passengers. Viking Star will have just 465 staterooms and maintain an exclusive feel. The ship will also feature a few public rooms that bring passengers together to create conversation, like the snow room in the spa and the cantilevered pool at the ship’s aft. The most important thing Viking made sure to bring to this ship is the sense of destination-based enrichment. Just as on their river ships, this ship will feature meals from the surrounding regions and have programs and speakers that will delight passengers on the cultures and heritages of their travel destinations.

Expand your horizons on this comfortable, award-winning ship, intimate and thoughtfully created by experienced nautical architects and designers to enrich your interaction with your destination in every way.
