Tialfi – Son of Egil and Champion Runner
In Norse mythology, Tialfi was the son of Egil and a champion runner. He became a slave to Thor, the god of thunder, after eating one of his goats. On a journey with Thor, Tialfi stopped to run a race against the young giant Hugi. The giant was an illusion and the embodiment of thought; and since no one can run faster than thought, Tialfi lost.
Sailing our most popular itineraries, our award-winning Viking Longships showcase innovative engineering, streamlined design and understated elegance for the most comfortable river cruise experience available.
