Explore the vast polar regions on Viking's purpose built expedition ships

Explore the 'Last Continent'

The Antarctic Peninsula is the destination of this ultimate journey, where you may see enormous icebergs, snow-covered landscapes, towering glaciers, and once-in-a-lifetime wildlife viewing. You will be one of the few people to find the last genuinely wild frontier on Earth, following in the footsteps of explorers like Amundsen, Shackleton, and Scott. Every day offers fresh surprises as well as the chance to modify plans in order to take advantage of wildlife encounters and adjust to the constantly shifting weather.

Terms and Conditions

Passengers traveling on cruises offered by Viking River Cruises and which may involve travel to remote locales, including, but not limited to, the Arctic or Antarctic regions (“Expedition Cruises”) are subject to additional terms and conditions as set forth in the Passenger Ticket Contract. Such passengers should read the Passenger Ticket carefully as it contains acknowledgements, requirements, and warranties specific to Expedition Cruises. Expedition Cruises involve additional risks and dangers above and beyond those of non-Expedition Cruises. Because of these inherent risks, all passengers traveling on Expedition Cruises are required to submit a Fit to Travel letter prior to travel and to update the Fit to Travel letter as also set forth in the Passenger Ticket Contract. In addition each passenger must take out appropriate cruise travel insurance which includes medical evacuation of at least US$250,000. Expedition Cruises are subject to greater restrictions on services and accommodations than would otherwise be generally applicable, including but not limited to what passengers may be able to bring on board during their travel on an Expedition Cruise. If you are traveling on an Expedition Cruise, you warrant that you have no physical or psychological condition which would entail an unreasonable risk to the health or safety of others participating in the Expedition Cruise or to the safe conduct of the Expedition Cruise and agree to abide by all terms and conditions of the Passenger Ticket Contract.
