“The thousands of guests who sailed our Welcome Back trip in Iceland last summer enjoyed the experience so much that they delivered record ratings,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “Ideal for the curious traveler, these new routes trace the routes of the early Viking explorers to Iceland and other North Atlantic destinations known for their natural beauty.”
“We are pleased to welcome Viking Saturn to our fleet and to offer our guests even more opportunities to comfortably explore this unique part of the world,” continued Hagen.
The shipping company also announced that it will be bringing back the popular eight-day Icelandic natural beauty route from August 2023. On the trip, Viking Star passengers will experience incomparable natural beauty, waterfalls and pristine fjord landscapes.
The shipping company’s award-winning ocean-going fleet already includes Viking Star, Viking Sea, Viking heaven, Viking Orion, Viking Jupiter and Viking Venus, while the company expects shipments of Viking Mars and Viking Neptune in 2022.
