Viking Adventure: The Great Lakes and Antarctica
By Tully Luxury Travel | 11-01-2022 |
Visit the five Great Lakes in Viking luxury or set sail for the Seventh Continent on an Antarctic cruise.
It seems that there’s always a new part of the world to pique your interest – and make you wonder why you haven’t thought of it before. Such is the case with new explorations from Viking Cruises. Be it a trip criss-crossing the Great Lakes of Ontario and the northern states or diving deep into the southern polar regions on an expedition to Antarctica, Viking has some really great ideas.
Explore the five Great Lakes
Viking’s voyages in the waters of the Great Lakes give you the highlights of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior – with multiple options so you can choose how your adventure rolls out.
A new 15-day Great Lakes Collection cruise – from Toronto, Ontario, to Duluth, Minnesota – takes in all five lakes, delivering big-city sights and sounds, along with aquatic marvels, headlined by Niagara Falls, Georgian Bay and the famous Soo Locks. Discover the Canadian Shield up close, uncovering eco-adventure and boreal forest, amazing wildlife and rocky shores. This cruise stops into ports in Ontario, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Experience the last wild frontier
With Viking Expeditions, you follow in the footsteps of the early explorers on any one of seven different itineraries that reach Antarctica starting in Ushuaia, Argentina – known as the “city at the end of the world.”
The 13- to 19-day Antarctic voyages let you discover the Seventh Continent via the infamous Drake Passage, including a new Antarctica and South Georgia Island adventure that takes you to the Falkland Islands and southeast to the wildlife wonder of the South Sandwich Islands. For those with a bit more time, three new Longitudinal World Cruises also sail to the Antarctic Peninsula, starting in Canada and working their way down the North and South American coastlines, through the Panama Canal.
Imagine skiff-boat tours through icy bays and around sculptural icebergs, treks across vast glaciers and visits to research stations with the expedition team. Incredible wildlife sightings become a normal part of your day, as you commune with amusing penguins, sidle up to seals fast asleep on the inlet banks, tour cliffside bird rookeries and whale-watch from the panoramic ship lounge.
