Viking Cruises: The Art of Viking Garden

Space to Grow
The Art of Viking Garden - a multi-layered wetland habitat - is reminiscent of a water meadow, open and inviting with multi-stem river birches and winding streams running through the space. Water is a key element of the design and a signature feature of Viking's RHS Show Gardens.  
Designer Paul Hervey-Brookes has taken inspiration for the design, textures, plants and colour palette of the art onboard Viking’s newest ocean ship, Viking Orion, including a painting by Norwegian impressionist Jakob Weidemann, ‘Impressions on Nature’, and ceramic plates by Anette Krogstad. The centrepiece of the garden, a sculpture created by Paul especially for Viking, exposes, by varying degrees, the landscape beyond. It reflects the sense of curiosity and discovery shared by all of Viking’s guests as well as the fact that travel, quite literally, broadens travellers’ horizons.
