As a sister to the Hemming, the grand Douro River in Portugal is where the Torgil sails, with extravagant Scandinavian interiors and a design more closely resembling the Longships than many other of its ships. Sights such as Lamego and Barca d’Alva is a sole privilege of the Torgil, and can all be viewed while relaxing on a deck chair on the Sun Deck, or in the pool on a hot day. 

Cuisine and Dining on Viking Torgil

One of the standard ships to have Viking’s trio of dining areas: the Restaurant, the Aquavit Terrace and the Observation Lounge. The primary area is the Restaurant. The casual elegance of the Restaurant is a defining point of Viking’s river cruises, providing outstanding views of the scenery with its panoramic windows and specially prepared regional specialties on fine china.

An extraordinary privilege available exclusively to Viking is the Aquavit Terrace. This calm and serene environment is perfect for passengers to gossip over a cup of tea or coffee. Situated at the bow of the ship in an outside area, the Aquavit Terrace allows passengers to take in the cool open air on a hot day, while still being covered during the less fortunate days by a remote controlled roof.

Lastly is the Bar in the observation lounge next to the Aquavit Terrace. This can be considered as an inside extension to the Terrace, and is where passengers gather on the classy evenings for fine wine and conversation.

Entertainment on Viking Torgil

The Viking ships are designed more for the culturally invested and traditional travellers. As such, there are a number of demonstrations, cooking classes and dance performances on board. 

Viking offers talks and lectures regarding the history of places you visit, from the Dutch Masters or French impressionists to the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

Included in these talks are tastes of the local wines and cuisines as well as lessons in key words and phrases of different languages. All of which are enhanced by the exemplary excursions on land.

Spa & Fitness on Viking Torgil

While there is no fitness gym and the ship also loses the Walking Track normally found on the longships, there is an onboard golf course and pool on the Sun Deck.

Recreation on Viking Torgil

In the times where you are just looking to sit back and relax, there is unfortunately no library, but Wi-Fi is still available on board and the staterooms are equipped with flatscreen TVs and entertainment packages.
