The sea and archipelago nature are close to Viking Line’s heart

Viking Line operates in a sensitive marine environment. We therefore work every day to preserve the vitality of the Baltic Sea and its precious archipelago


The sea and the archipelago have, of course, been very important to Viking Line for many decades. Our actual environmental work started in the 1980s as our fleet was renewed and expanded. Our environmental work has become a natural part of decision-making and our daily work.
