Expedition experiences

An expedition means discovering and exploring the extraordinary, making it your own. You will have plenty of opportunities for this both on board and ashore. Together with your experts, explore uncharted territory wherever our expedition ships drop anchor. And you won’t just see the world. You’ll understand it.


ZODIACS
On our expeditions, the Zodiacs are often lowered into the water several times a day. These expedition rubber boats can take you ashore whenever there is no harbour. A sense of pure adventure is never far behind. You will discover nature from a unique perspective in small groups and with no long waiting times.

CAMPING IN THE ANTARCTIC
Surely the purest way to experience the sixth continent! Take the unique opportunity to pitch your tent in the endless ice. An intensive experience in the tradition of great pioneers. This activity is offered on selected expeditions with the HANSEATIC nature and the HANSEATIC inspiration. More information on this adventure, along with prices, can be found here.

KAYAKS
Conquer the polar waters by kayak in small groups of no more than twelve participants. We offer tours with instruction from an experienced kayak guide on selected cruises on our new expedition ships. These excursions are ideal for beginners with previous experience. More information on this adventure, along with prices, can be found here.

HIKES
Your experts will accompany the hikes and landings and draw your attention to details that often go unnoticed by an untrained eye. Snowshoe hiking in Antarctica is a very special experience. Not only will you enjoy spectacular views, you will gain deep insights into the wonders of our planet.

STAND-UP PADDLING
Go with the flow on the seven seas! Enjoy this relaxing yet sporty activity and reach your own dream destinations by paddle board – depending on the conditions and pleasant water temperatures, of course. You can find further information here.
