Because of the importance of water for drinking, bathing, shipping, and food, cities in Europe and Asia sprouted along rivers. Today, the area around rivers are vibrant and located close to cities’ centers of activities. It is for this reason, that river cruises offer unique views of city skylines and access to interesting diversions. Viking River cruises take full advantage of these opportunities to bring you the vacation of a lifetime.
Viking River tours to Europe will bring you up close and personal with the heart of cities that have been around for thousands of years. For example, Viking River cruises in Germany will take you along the Rhine, where you will see many medieval castles, as well as take excursions to shore so that you can walk cobbled streets and sample German beers. You can also take the Rhine on Viking River cruises to France. The Rhine Rhapsody from Paris to Basel allows you to see the beautiful skyline from the Rhine, as well as go to shore and sample cafes. Viking River cruises to Europe are perfect for first time river cruisers. Another nice aspect of some of these trips is that they include Viking River cruises to the UK as part of the trip. For example, the Into the Midnight Sun tour runs from Bergen Norway, through Scotland, and ending in London.
If you are more adventurous, you might consider Viking River cruises to China and Viking River cruises to Russia. You might enjoy the Imperial Jewels of China: Beijing to Shanghai in which you can cruise the Yangtze River. The latter Viking River tours will take you from Moscow to St. Petersburg along the Volga and other rivers.
In addition to the destinations on a Viking River tour, you will enjoy the Viking River cruise ships. Rooms are large and include in-room video entertainment. Common areas and bars are luxurious and the glassed-in and outdoor areas allow for great viewing.
A Viking River cruise will leave you wanting more.
