In the evenings you’ll enjoy five-course meals as you watch the passing scenery.

Shore excursions

Designed to ensure that you get the most out of your river cruise, Viking shore excursions are your personal ticket to a host of memorable attractions and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You’ll typically enjoy a different excursion on each day of your cruise, planned in partnership with a key organisation and led by an expert, English-speaking guide. From walking tours of iconic cities and quaint riverside villages to explorations of medieval castles and papal palaces, you’ll experience exactly what makes each area you visit so special. And with many excursions offering authentic, first-hand experiences such as sampling the local cuisine, wine-tasting and traditional music, you’ll feel like you’ve truly experienced what life is like in the places which you visit.

On-board activities

On-board your ship you’ll enjoy a Cultural Curriculum – an exclusive programme to help you learn about and enjoy the history of the places you visit. It features lectures on art and history, tasting sessions with local wines, informative talks about each port and musicians performing regional and classical music. You’ll also find a library stocked with books to enjoy.

Exclusive to adults
