As the Thinking Person’s Cruise Line, Viking River shore excursions are dedicated to ensuring our guests experience as many opportunities as possible to explore and learn about the destinations they visit.

A Viking River shore excursion takes you closer to the unique art, heritage, traditions, architecture and people that define each destination. Whether it’s castles and cathedrals, museums and outdoor markets or a UNESCO World Heritage site, every day with Viking is an opportunity for you to discover more about the world, and yourself.
