Viking Expedition Cruises World Cruise Highlights


Apostle Islands on Lake Michigan

Great Lakes, Greater Experience

For those who have been everywhere, I bet you haven’t cruised the Great Lakes! Embark on a Viking Expeditions World cruise, beginning in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Lake Michigan with a local cheese tasting before heading for a bike ride (to burn off all that cheese) on Mackinaw Island! Then, head south through Lake Huron to Motor City, East on Lake Erie for a stop in Toronto before hitting the open ocean and going south toward Antarctica.

Penguins in Patagonia

No, we don’t mean penguins in fleece jackets, but that would be adorable. Your Viking Expeditions World cruise will make all your penguin dreams come true as you sail the shores of Patagonia, climbing on a Zodiac for a glacier landing to get up close and personal with these little guys.


Bird watching in Cooper Harbor, Michigan

Winged Wildlife

A Viking Expeditions World cruise is perfect for the bird enthusiast looking to learn about all kinds of species on one vacation! From the birdlife of Brion Island in Quebec, down the Atlantic Coast to the low-country birds in Charleston, South Carolina and the penguins (they are technically birds!) in Antarctica, make sure you bring your binoculars for the best views and sign up for onboard lectures on ornithology.


The Science Lab onboard Viking Expeditions

Onboard & Onshore Enrichment

Remember that team of expedition experts? They lead excursions, onboard lectures and will even enlist the help of the guests for data and sample collection.
