    Experience the multifaceted wonders of the Antarctic: watch the unique bird life of the Falkland Islands and hundreds of thousands of king penguins on South Georgia. Listen to the cracking of the pack ice on the Weddell Sea and keep watch for whales. The passage through the narrow Lemaire Channel is another highlight – the impressive rock faces close enough to touch on both sides, along with the passage through the Neumayer Channel.

    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.

The king penguins raise their young in the subantarctic summer and autumn – fluffy brown chicks crowding the shores like a huge kindergarten.

    South Orkney Islands , Weddell Sea , South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula

    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.

    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.
