Viking is expanding its expeditions to the Arctic region, home of the polar bear and an area previously unchartered by the cruise line’s two new adventure ships.

The line has just released its 2023 – 2025 expedition brochure, revealing all the adventures that Viking Octanis and Viking Polaris will be taking.

Michelle Black, ANZ Managing Director Viking said: “We now have a wide range of expedition voyages open and ready for guests to secure their preferred sailing up until September 2025.

“From new itineraries exploring the stunning Arctic region during the Northern Hemisphere summer to the unbelievable experience of our Antarctica voyages, there’s something for every type of traveller.”
