    The highlights of this cruise

    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.

    Downstream on the Amazon with Zodiac landings (including Pevas, Leticia, Rio Jutai, Uara, Cuxiu Muni, Badajos)

    An extraordinary realm of superlatives: over 40,000 identified plant species flourish in the enormous rainforest along the planet’s largest river. The wonders of the Amazon will go beyond your wildest imagination. Its natural experiences are far more overwhelming than any description can convey: see the sheer scale of them for yourself as you travel the 4,000 km (2,485 mi.) of your impressive expedition from Iquitos to the mouth of the river at the Atlantic. It is as if the small manoeuvrable ships of the new expedition class have been made for exploring this exotic ecosystem. The HANSEATIC nature and HANSEATIC inspiration are completely in their element as they navigate through the labyrinthine river. The Zodiacs are used over and over again to get you even closer to the secrets of the jungle. In Pevas, at the start of the cruise, the Zodiacs will provide first-hand impressions of ancient ways of life: one of the oldest villages on the upper Amazon, this native Peruvian settlement features striking traditional stilt buildings. The markets of Leticia also show life in harmony with nature – surrounded by the aromas of fresh spices and tropical fruits, hear the parrots call over the roofs of the Colombian city. After the Rio Jutai, the sounds of the jungle will accompany your Amazon experience in Uara as butterflies dance through the air. Look forward to a special encounter when the Zodiac forges a path through the night-time jungle of Cuxiu Muni and the eyes of caimans shine through the darkness. The Amazon’s biodiversity will bring new surprises every day – for example, on a fascinating cruise through the flooded forests of Badajos. In the branches above you, keep an eye out for the small squirrel monkeys who earned their name thanks to their speed and agility.

    Manaus (Amazon)/Brazil

    The Brazilian metropolis of Manaus (Amazon) provides an urban contrast: glittering glass facades add modern touches to the classical and art nouveau architecture on your tour of the city’s history and opera house*. A scenic flight above Manaus (Amazon)* highlights the coexistence of civilisation and nature as the picturesque mosaic of culture and wilderness stretches out below you.

    Further downstream on the Amazon with Zodiac landings (including Canacari, Parintins, Alter do Chao, Guajara, Rio Pucurui)

    Canacari will take your rainforest experiences to a very special level: on a Zodiac ride, huge floating carpets of grass sit alongside drifting meadows of water lilies – the largest in the world with leaves up to 3 m (10 ft) in diameter. At the middle point of the Amazon, Parintins is the epitome of flourishing city life. Bumba-meu-boi sees the locals don colourful costumes and dance exuberantly to intoxicating music, providing an insight into foreign worlds. Back in the jungle, the waves exude an almost Caribbean flair on Alter do Chao beach, inviting you to take to the water. Enjoy doing sweet nothing, just like the sloth, a famous jungle inhabitant that might make an appearance. The Amazon region is home to more than 400 mammal species, including one particularly vibrant example: with luck, pink river dolphins will appear by the Zodiacs in Guajara. According to legend, these skilful swimmers can transform into young men in order to seduce women. The legendarily diverse bird life will be present throughout your cruise as the birds that live on South America’s lifeline make themselves known at different times. The toucan is one of the loudest singers, and its dazzling beak could have been painted by an artist. Keep a lookout on the Rio Pucurui, where you might also spot yellow-headed caracaras and saffron finches against the backdrop of palms. It is highly likely that you will encounter many more of the region’s over 1,000 species of bird.

    Day trip through the Breves Channels

    The underwater fauna is even more abundant, with three times as many species of fish: as the daytime passage on the Breves Channels draws to a close, the experts on board will once again quench your thirst for knowledge. Banana trees, cashew trees and a host of palms will line your route through one of the planet’s last paradises.
