Viking Longship Heimdal
The Beauties of Southern France
Sail along France’s scenic Saône and Rhône Rivers past some of the most beautiful vistas the French countryside has to offer. During your journey, explore the famed region of Burgundy and the colorful fields of Provence. Visit Gallo-Roman ruins, walk cobbled streets and visit the historic Papal Palace in Avignon. Learn about the region’s time-honored winemaking traditions, sample Burgundy varietals and try the world-famous regional cuisine in Lyon.
Tall and handsome and known for his purity of heart and mind, Heimdal, is the ever-vigilant guardian of the gods. In many stories he is the son of Odin and nine mothers who are believed to be the wave maidens. Heimdal is blessed with extraordinary sight and hearing. He can see for 100 leagues and can hear the grass growing. His horn, Gjallarhorn, can be heard throughout heaven, earth and the lower world to summon the gods when their enemies, the giants, draw near at the Ragnarok, the end of the world of gods and men. When that time comes, Heimdal and his enemy Loki, god of mischief, will slay each other.
