    Your ship - HANSEATIC inspiration

    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.

    Relaxation at sea –
    cruising on Lake Ontario

    Canada – the epitome of freedom and pristine nature. This expedition full of contrasts begins with an unexpected manoeuvre for the ship: after travelling on Lake Ontario along the Thousand Islands, the HANSEATIC inspiration will scale seven locks – something very few ships can do – on the way to Montreal.

    Friday, 03.07.2020

    Montreal, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    The francophone metropolis is situated on a picturesque island in the St. Lawrence River. Enjoy the view of the city and Notre-Dame Basilica from Mont Royal, the local mountain. Just as majestic, though formed by nature, the Laurentian Mountains* rise up into the sky: the panoramic view of endless forests and deep-blue lakes will get you in the mood for further excursions – such as the sophisticated Mont Tremblant winter sports resort. Explore the cultural riches on a bicycle tour through Montreal*: discover popular sights from the Old Port to the bustling Atwater Market on one of North America’s best cycle networks.

    Sunday, 05.07.2020

    Tadoussac, from 9.00 to 14.00 hrs

    Your route to the north-east then takes you to Canada’s oldest village: Tadoussac was founded in 1535. Get to know the region’s majestic side by whale watching on the St. Lawrence Fjord* – keep an eye out for blue, fin and humpback whales. You might even see a white beluga whale. Alternatively, a hike on the Sentier du Fjord trail* is a chance to unwind in nature on one of Quebec’s most beautiful hiking routes.

    sailing through the Gulf of St. Lawrence

    Norris Point/Newfoundland, from 9.00 to 17.00 hrs

    Following a passage through the Gulf of St. Lawrence, you will reach Norris Point in Newfoundland. This charming town in Bonne Bay is the starting point for fascinating tours. A hike in Gros Morne National Park*, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will take you to ancient table mountains and the fishing village of Lobster Cove Head. Enjoy the view of the lunar-like Tablelands from a new perspective on a boat trip in Bonne Bay*. Two fjords flow together, picturesque villages sit by the shore and, with a little luck, whales and eagles will add the perfect touch to this idyllic panorama.

    Labrador (Red Bay, Battle Harbour, Rigolet, Hopedale)

    The further north the HANSEATIC inspiration goes, the further you will leave civilisation behind. Labrador is largely untouched by tourism. This remote paradise beckons you to explore its impressive scenery and culture: the villages of Red Bay and Battle Harbour display the region’s grand history of fishing. If the local port authority gives the green light, you will cruise to the Inuit community of Rigolet. Hopedale and its museum also provide insights into the culture and history of the First Nations, Canada’s indigenous peoples.

    Expedition days in the Hudson Strait (Akpatok Island, Sugluk Bay, Diana Island (Diana Bay))

    While you enjoy breathtaking panoramas on a cruise through the Labrador Sea, the HANSEATIC inspiration will head further north towards the famous Hudson Strait, where the ice conditions at this time of year often determine the course to create a thrilling sense of discovery. On the wild Akpatok Island, marvel at the untouched landscapes as steep rocky coasts form the backdrop for potential polar bear sightings. Explore the region’s geology up-close in a Zodiac when you visit the rugged, rocky hills of Sugluk Bay. On Diana Island (Diana Bay), home to musk oxen and reindeer, you will be able to experience how the pioneers felt all those years ago.

    Cruising off Monumental Island

    A wonderful natural spectacle awaits on Monumental Island: with luck, a Zodiac ride off the island will bring you face-to-face with walruses.

    Western coast of Greenland (Qeqertarsuaq, Ilulissat, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)

    Your first destination on Greenland, Qeqertarsuaq, welcomes you with its picturesque natural harbour and a whalebone gateway leading to a world of colourful houses, kayaks and huskies. Meanwhile, Ilulissat reveals its dazzling charm: with the experts at your side, you will reach the old settlement of Sermermiut and enjoy fantastic views of bizarre icebergs. Want to marvel at a calving glacier? With luck, this almost surreal scene in blue and white will be unveiled in Disko Bay. The icebergs drift slowly through the water, leaving observers astonished and awestruck. In Sisimiut, bid farewell and look back on an expedition filled with glittering icy worlds, fascinating cultures and limitless freedom.
