Viking Longship Lofn
The Grandeur of Europe
Imagine a journey along the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers. From Holland’s windmill-studded tulip fields to Germany’s fairytale castles, from the Main-Danube Canal to the vineyards of Austria’s Wachau Valley, this epic voyage offers a wealth of wonderful experiences.
The Norse goddess of Comfort, Lofn, is so gracious that the mightiest of gods melts to her will. Even Odin himself, the chief god of Norse mythology, gives Lofn permission to arrange marriages. Whether the love that impassions men and women is right or wrong or approved by others does not concern her. Rather, she longs to nurture adoration at its purest, even if it means arranging marriages that are taboo. Because of her extraordinary selflessness and kindness, the Norwegian word lof, or praise, has been associated with her name.
