Viking is launching its 2024 European river season as its Longship fleet begins sailing itineraries throughout the region.

Designed specifically for European waterways, the company’s river fleet of sister ships, which host up to 190 guests, sail a variety of itineraries on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Seine, Rhône, Douro, Moselle and Elbe rivers.

“With its rich history, culture and scenic regions that are best explored by river, Europe remains our most popular destination,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. “As more curious travelers become familiar with river voyages as a seamless method for exploring, we are pleased to begin a new season on Europe’s iconic waterways.”

Viking has also announced a new 10-day Treasures of the Danube itinerary, giving travellers the opportunity to call on ports along the Danube River during the winter months.

The new voyage will sail between Budapest and Passau from December 2024 through early March 2025.

Viking guests also have the choice to explore the Rhine River during the winter season with the 10-day Treasures of the Rhine itinerary, which debuted in December 2023 and sails between Amsterdam and Basel.

Some of Viking’s other popular European river itineraries sailing from March through December include the Rhine Getaway, the Danube Waltz, the Romantic Danube, Paris and the Heart of Normandy, Lyon and Provence, Christmas on the Rhine, Danube Christmas Delights, Christmas on the Seine, Portugal’s River of Gold and the Grand European Tour.
