On December 14, 1911, Norwegian Roald Amundsen became the first person to reach the South Pole and secured his place in history as one of the great explorers.

Exploration infuses everything we do at Viking River Cruises and so we celebrate this accomplishment of courage, determination and careful planning. Join us on an exciting journey through history — on the centenary of Amundsen's expedition — with this 10-minute film, narrated by Viking's own Karine Hagen.

"Victory awaits him, who has everything in order. Luck we call it." -- Roald Amundsen

Karine Hagen of Viking River Cruises is your host.
