Explore the real Russia

Discover Russia on the Volga River, where Viking began with four ships in 1997. See swirling onion domes in Moscow and opulent palaces in St. Petersburg. Share stories at the kitchen table of an Uglich family. Soak up the steam in a traditional banya. Savor Russian caviar with blini pancakes. Sail in comfort on our ships, owned and operated by Viking. This 13-day voyage—a favorite of Chairman Torstein Hagen—reveals the real Russia as never before.
