    Your ship - HANSEATIC inspiration

    The new expedition class

    The HANSEATIC inspiration was launched 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.

    Daytime passage through the Panama Canal

    After your first eventful expedition days, the anticipation will build on board the HANSEATIC inspiration, and suddenly it appears before you – magnificent and legendary, as well as the country’s economic lifeline: the Panama Canal. Opened over 100 years ago, it is the world’s most important waterway. Over more than 80 km (49 mi.), your daytime passage will take you past wild grasslands and dense rainforest, with fascinating background information from your team of experts. The canal is rich in history through its construction, significance and expansion alone.

This region, declared a national park in 1981, is a protected space for many native peoples; it spans 579,000 ha (1,430,740 ac.) and is also part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

    Isla Lobos de Tierra/Peru

    Much wilder, but no less lively, Peru offers invigorating natural experiences on one of its beautiful rocky islands: after a brief technical stop in Paita, you will reach Isla Lobos de Tierra. The island’s name, which translates as “island of the land wolves”, was inspired by its enormous population of sea lions. Much smaller examples of its fantastic fauna include pelicans and blue-footed boobies, their vibrant blue feet lending them an extremely charming look. After an afternoon surrounded by the hubbub of the wildlife and impressive scenery wherever you look, you will board the ship and head out onto the vast ocean. As the HANSEATIC inspiration sets a southerly course, you will enjoy unique impressions of the South American Pacific coast.
