More About This episode

When guests board the Viking Sea, they're not looking for casinos, bumper cars or discos. They want outstanding scenery, dramatic destinations, and sublime Scandinavian decor, all of which they'll receive, and then some. Join us on a 14-day journey that follows ancient Viking trading routes, from London to Scotland and the northwest coast of Norway. It's a course this new ship has never sailed before, and while it promises majestic views and grand adventure, getting there and back will push the captain and his crew to the limit.
