Viking continues resumption with cruises from Iceland

Viking Sky, here, and Viking Jupiter will operate 19 round-trips from Reykjavik through early September
Viking welcomed passengers on board in Iceland over the weekend as the line continued its cruise resumption.

Passengers embarked Viking Sky in Reykjavík, where the ship will homeport this summer along with Viking Jupiter. Both will sail the new 'Iceland’s Natural Beauty' itinerary through early September.

Fully vaccinated cruises

These cruises are available for fully vaccinated travelers.

19 Reykjavik round-trips

The voyage currently underway is the first of 19 sailings round-trip from Reykjavík. The eight-day circumnavigation of Iceland includes destinations like Akureyri, Seydisfjördur and Heimaey.

'Stunning island of fire and ice'

'This stunning island of fire and ice inspired the original Vikings when they charted new territory, so it especially fitting as a key destination in our "Welcome Back" collection,' Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen said. 'We look forward to introducing even more guests to this beautiful Nordic country over the summer.'

Viking restarted operations in May and has been sailing in England with British passengers since May 22. On June 15, the company welcomed Americans back on board in Bermuda. In July Viking will introduce Mediterranean cruises on three ships homeported in Valletta, Malta, and river sailings on select itineraries in Portugal, France and along the Rhine.
