As a result of this season’s historic drought in Europe, low water conditions on the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers have persisted longer than expected. Water levels on all three rivers continue to be unpredictable. Throughout the summer we have seen levels improve with just small amounts of rain, and then quickly recede again. There is currently some rain in the forecast for the region. However, experts predict it will take a long period of sustained rainfall before water levels in all sections of the rivers will return to normal.

In order to minimize the impact to each sailing, Viking has several contingency plans to bypass those areas where water levels remain too low. We will continue to monitor water levels daily and activate plans as necessary. Conditions affecting select itineraries may require that we notify guests about some of the specific changes on short notice.

We always want our guests to feel that they have the most current information about their journey, so we will continue to directly contact all guests on itineraries affected by residual low water conditions until levels return to normal.


Two locks along the Douro river will be closed for maintenance from November 2018 to April 2019 which will result in slight changes on select sailings of the Portugal’s River of Gold itinerary.

Guests on affected sailings have been notified directly.

We will continue to update this page with more information as it becomes available
