    Gigantic tabular icebergs and magnificent wildlife sightings – undeterred, the HANSEATIC inspiration forges its path along the Antarctic Peninsula, through the narrow Lemaire Channel and the crystal-clear waters of the Neumayer Channel. Enjoy a more intensive experience of the Weddell Sea than on any other route: how far into this region will the HANSEATIC inspiration actually make it? The volcanic South Shetland Islands thrill with a contrast between ice, glaciers and fascinating fauna.

    The new expedition class

    The HANSEATIC inspiration is planned to launch in October 2019.

    The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why our ships have more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Hear the ice crack as you stand on the bow. Or discover the dense mangrove forests of the Amazon from various perspectives as they pass by at arm’s length.

    Antarctic Peninsula , Weddell Sea , South Shetland Islands

    Antarctic Peninsula
    Setting foot on the Antarctic mainland is an unforgettable experience. Tranquil and endless, the shimmering masses of ice stretch out before you and take your breath away. Get up-close to penguin colonies, the fascinating water ballet of the icebergs and mighty mountain ranges that guard the coast – the endless ice of the Antarctic Peninsula will make a profound impression on your heart and soul.

    Antarctic Sound and Weddell Sea

    The Weddell Sea and Antarctic Sound comprise one of the world’s most remote and challenging expedition regions. Spectacular tabular icebergs drift elegantly through the blue water as your expedition ship forges a path through the ice floes – and you have a front-row seat on deck.

    South Shetland Islands
    Although the South Shetland Islands are largely glaciated, their climate is mild in Antarctic terms. Board a Zodiac and set out for Half Moon Island, where vast fields of snow contrast starkly with the dark rock depending on the season. The volcanic legacy of the archipelago becomes particularly intense on Deception Island: board your expedition ship and the Zodiacs and head deep into the caldera whose collapsed volcanic cone forms the island. Hot underground springs cover the beach in mystical steam depending on the water level.
