Viking Expedition Ships

Viking's state-of-the-art expedition ships the Viking Octantis and the Viking Polaris have been designed so guests can explore some of the world's most pristine destinations in comfort and maximising viewing in these spectacular locations. With more indoor and outdoor viewing areas than other expedition vessels and with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, every light-filled space has been thoughtfully designed as a viewing platform. So no matter where you are on the ship, you're as close as possible to the most magnificent scenery on earth.

The Aula, a stunning panoramic auditorium inspired by the University of Oslo's famed ceremonial hall, features a 4k laser-projected screen that retracts to expose floor-to-ceiling windows and 270° views. The Finse Terrace is an outdoor lounge area just above sea level with recessed, heated couches and lava rock "firepits," designed to allow guests the comforts of the ship while enjoying the dramatic scenery. While The Bow is an important forward-viewing platform with the option to retreat to The Shelter, a partially enclosed space for guests to warm up with a hot drink before going back out into the elements, even The Nordic Spa has floor-to-ceiling windows so you can relax in the hydrotherapy pool and never miss a thing. Every stateroom features a Nordic Balcony, a first for polar expedition vessels, the sunroom converts into an al fresco viewing platform with an observation shelf at elbow level to stabilize binoculars or a camera.

Viking's 2023-2025 Expeditions brochure is out now and available to order through TIFS.
