    The highlights of this cruise

    Your ship - MS BREMEN

    Your personal expedition

    Having been awarded four stars by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2018, the BREMEN is the perfect setting for a truly personal expedition with no more than 155 guests. The wonderful experiences of nature that you will enjoy on your cruise are also reflected in the ship’s ambience.

With carpets, patterns and materials which reflect the animal and plant kingdoms in their appearance and an awe-inspiring chandelier shaped like a school of fish, enjoy an extraordinarily authentic ship with true character.

    Salaverry

    Between civilisation and abundant nature
    Your expedition begins with impressive relics of long-lost civilisations. From Salaverry, you can explore the Huaca el Dragon temple and Chan Chan*. Here you will follow in the footsteps of the Chimu culture: the UNESCO World Heritage Site, built around 1300, is probably one of the largest adobe cities in the world. The two temples of the highly developed Mochica culture, which you can discover in the Moche Valley with the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon* date back still further. Built from millions of adobe bricks, the Pyramid of the Sun is the largest solid construction in the Americas, whilst the Pyramid of the Moon is known for its bright paintings and murals.

    Isla Lobos de Afuera

    Cultural treasures compete with the riches of nature: the Zodiacs will bring you ashore on the tiny Isla Lobos de Afuera, the “island of sea lions” off the coast of Peru. With luck, you will be able to observe these massive creatures from the Zodiacs or on a hike with experts.

    Isla Gorgona/Colombia

    Follow a trail rather than leave one behind: Colombia’s eco-tourism objectives are in line with our standards on board the BREMEN. The rainforest island of Isla Gorgona is a premier destination, which once served as a base for pirates and then as the “Alcatraz of Colombia” before becoming a nature reserve.

    Friday, 20.07.2018

    Uramba and Utria national parks

    When it comes to the diversity of flora and fauna, however, the island is surpassed by the virtually untouched rainforests of the Uramba and Utria national parks. This is where you will find one of the richest examples of biodiversity in the world. Tropical birds, reptiles, amphibians, land mammals – which species will you observe? The answers can be found during two active, flexible expedition days on visits to the Uramba and Utria national parks, subject to official approval.

    San Blas/Panama

    The Panama Canal is a long-lasting experience until the BREMEN reaches the archipelago of San Blas on the Caribbean side.The small autonomous island reserve of the Kuna indigenous people is a picture-book world of palm trees and white sandy beaches.

    Bonaire/Netherlands Antilles

    Welcome to a vividly coloured, beautiful island. Bonaire is certainly one of the most beautiful ABC islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao – in the Netherlands Antilles. Here you will encounter parrots, hummingbirds, iguanas and, with a little luck – if you visit salt-water Lake Gotomeer in the north – some pink flamingos. The island also has a diverse underwater population. The protected ring-shaped reef around the entire island allows you to dive or snorkel and admire unforgettable coral landscapes. The small capital Kralendijk also offers a colourful welcome with buildings painted in pink, orange and pastel shades. Stroll along the picturesque boulevard with its spectacular view of the ocean and marvel at the many beautiful fishing boats in the town’s harbour. The tour Bon Bini – Welcome to the island of Bonaire* presents scenic and historical highlights. Explore the underwater world on a trip in a glass-bottom boat* and discover aquatic life and reefs.

    Venezuela (Islas Los Roques , Isla Margarita)

    Venezuela’s equivalent on the seldom-visited Islas Los Roques is in no way inferior: a national park made up of island gems in turquoise waters. With the approval of the authorities, the Zodiacs will make a landing. Whether you prefer to enjoy the peace and quiet on the white sandy beach or do some snorkelling – there are plenty of idyllic photo opportunities. One of Venezuela’s gems, and not just because of its former abundance of pearls, is Isla Margarita. Explore the contrasting landscape of mangrove forests, deserts and idyllic beaches by jeep and boat as part of a nature adventure on Isla Margarita*. Your imagination will be inspired still further on a flight to the Canaima National Park and the famous Angel Falls*. A bird’s-eye view of the lush, green jungle and the glittering Orinoco – just as intoxicating as the high table mountains, the tropical rainforest and the highest free-falling waterfall in the world.
