Baldur – Norse God of Light and Joy

Baldur was everyone’s favourite, loved by both gods and mortals. Baldur was believed to be indestructible. So impervious to injury was he that, at banquets, guests used to amuse themselves by hurling objects at him. Nothing, it seemed, could harm him. Yet the malicious trickster, Loki, discovered that the one thing that could kill Baldur was mistletoe. He tricked Hodur into throwing a sprig of mistletoe at the beautiful and good Baldur, fatally wounding him.

Sailing our most popular itineraries, the award-winning Viking Baldur showcases innovative engineering, streamlined design and understated elegance for the most comfortable river cruise experience available.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit.
