VIKING ANNUNCIA NUOVI TESORI DELL’ITINERARIO DEL RENO
Il nuovo viaggio invernale sul fiume rende Viking la prima linea operativa tutto l’anno in Europa
Viking® ha annunciato Treasures of the Rhine, un nuovo viaggio fluviale che offre agli ospiti l’opportunità di sperimentare la ricca cultura europea durante l’inverno. Il nuovo itinerario del Medio Reno debutta nel dicembre 2023 e stabilisce Viking come la prima linea a operare tutto l’anno sui fiumi storici d’Europa, offrendo agli ospiti un accesso più facile ai punti di riferimento quando di solito c’è meno folla.
“Il Medio Reno è una delle nostre destinazioni più popolari: con panorami in continua evoluzione di castelli in cima a colline, città storiche e vigneti terrazzati lungo i ripidi fianchi della valle, è una regione che sarà sempre meglio esplorata dal fiume”, ha affermato Torstein Hagen, Presidente di Viking. “Molti dei nostri ospiti hanno navigato sul Reno durante altre stagioni, quindi siamo lieti di offrire una nuova opzione per coloro che potrebbero essere interessati a vivere l’Europa durante un periodo dell’anno più tranquillo”.
VIKING ANNOUNCES NEW TREASURES OF THE RHINE ITINERARY
New Winter River Voyage Establishes Viking as the First Line to Operate Year-Round in Europe
Los Angeles (May 23, 2023) – Viking® (www.viking.com) today announced Treasures of the Rhine, a new river voyage allowing guests the opportunity to experience Europe’s rich culture during winter. The new Middle Rhine itinerary debuts in December 2023 and establishes Viking as the first line to operate year-round on Europe’s storied rivers, offering guests easier access to landmarks when there are typically fewer crowds.
“The Middle Rhine is one of our most popular destinations—with constantly changing views of hilltop castles, historic towns and terraced vineyards along the steep valley sides, it is a region that will always be best explored by the river,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. “Many of our guests have sailed the Rhine during other seasons, so we are pleased to offer a new option for those who may be interested experiencing Europe during a quieter time of year.”
Viking’s Treasures of the Rhine Itinerary
The 10-day Treasures of the Rhine itinerary allows guests to discover the enchanting landscape and rich cultures of the Middle Rhine, a UNESCO Site boasting turreted fortresses, grand cathedrals, medieval towns and stunning scenery. Guests can admire the terraced vineyards dating back to the Romans and taste the region’s renowned red and white wines. An ideal time to visit, winter offers Viking guests smaller crowds, easier access to landmarks and opportunities to savor the culinary traditions of Alsace while exploring Amsterdam, Basel and Cologne.
