Viking Debuts Three New Arctic Expeditions

Viking announced three new Arctic expeditions to debut in July 2025. 

Ranging from 13 to 27 days, travelers can explore the polar north in Canada and Greenland or take an expedition to the Canadian High Arctic. 

Torsten Hagen, chairman of Viking, said, “Our guests are curious travelers who are eager to explore new and different regions of the world, in Viking comfort. From the time of Leif Eriksson and the original Vikings, Greenland and the Canadian High Arctic have fascinated intrepid explorers. Today, there is no better way to experience this pristine area of the world than from the comfort of our purpose-built expedition ships.”

The 2025 Arctic Voyages include:

  • Into the Northwest Passage: a 13-day round trip Nuuk voyage that will explore the Canadian High Arctic. Sailing dates are from July through September 2025. 
  • Canada and Greenland Explorer: 15 days of exploring Canada and Greenland’s shores and sailing amid floating icebergs. Sailing dates are in July and September 2025. 
  • Canada and the Northwest Passage: 27 days between Nuuk and Toronto visiting the Canadian High Arctic and Greenland and getting a glimpse of life in Inuit communities. The expedition will be available in July and September 2025.

Additionally, Viking Octantis will offer cruises between the Great Lakes and “the end of the world.”  The 70-day Longitudinal World Cruise III will journey from Milwaukee to Ushuaia in September 2023. The itinerary will journey through the heart of North America, visiting the Welland and Panama Canals, the Chilean fjords and finally Antarctica. 

Viking Polaris will also embark on the 71-day Longitudinal World Cruise II from Duluth to Ushuaia in September 2023. She will also sail the 62-day Longitudinal World Cruise IV from Milwaukee to Ushuaia in October 2024. 

In February 2024, Viking will offer a similar voyage in reverse with the 65-day Longitudinal Cruise I from Buenos Aires to Milwaukee.
