    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.

    Saturday, 03.04.2021

    Santiago/Cape Verde

    The largest Cape Verde island is Santiago, the archipelago’s history book with the most diverse landscape of all the islands.

    Relaxation at sea

    Monday, 05.04.2021 to
    Thursday, 08.04.2021

    Cape Verde (Fogo , Santo Antao, Sao Vicente, Sao Nicolao )

    Fogo, the “fire island”, is dominated by the Pico do Fogo at a height of over 2,800 m (9,186 ft). Explore the fire island’s volcanic landscape* on a tour to the edge of the caldera. Alternatively, take a walk through Sao Filipe* and marvel at the picturesque capital with its numerous colonial houses. Experience Santo Antao and its subtropical and tropical vegetation up-close on a walk through the verdant Paul Valley*. The route is the destination when you head off-road through canyons and along the Atlantic coast to explore the “wild west” in a jeep*. Sao Vicente is known as a melting pot of cultures. See for yourself on the promenade and in the African market and old town when you explore Mindelo on foot*. A hike to Salamansa* takes you through a lunar landscape to a small village on the north coast. The pristine island of Sao Nicolao is rarely visited. The dreamy fishing village of Tarrafal is the starting point for a walk through the bizarre mountain world*. This offers perhaps the most beautiful views of the archipelago and vegetation such as banana trees and papayas. The colourful houses of Ribeira Brava, an island capital with history*, are surrounded by picturesque mountains: first a bishop’s seat, then home to a prison, now it is simply beautiful. Saying goodbye to Cape Verde will not be easy, but Spain’s Atlantic gems await ...

    Santa Cruz/Tenerife/Spain,

Head up through various climates and vegetation zones to Canadas del Teide National Park*. With more than 50 native plants, the flora and fauna around Spain’s highest mountain will draw you under their spell. A hike in the Anaga mountain range* will lead you right to its green heart. In typical laurel forests, you will feel as though you are in a tropical jungle.

    Monday, 12.04.2021

    Puerto de la Estaca/El Hierro,
    from 8.00 to 17.00 hrs

    The smallest of the Canary Islands offers the greatest diversity: El Hierro – the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve* entices with its laid-back capital, Valverde, and breathtaking views of the Roque de Bonanza. The scent of old eucalyptus forests is equally striking in the hiker’s paradise of El Hierro*. Get up-close to the obvious and hidden beauties of the Madeira archipelago.

    Tuesday, 13.04.2021

    Selvagem Grande/Madeira/Portugal

    The island of Selvagem Grande lies beyond the usual routes. Subject to official approval, you will walk across the “wild island” with conservationists to find out about geckos, Scopoli’s shearwaters and endemic plants.

    Porto Santo, from 8.00 to 17.00 hrs
    Funchal/Madeira/Portugal, arrival 22.00 hrs
    Overnight stay on board

    Porto Santo may be famous for its kilometre-long sandy beach, but its mountain landscapes are even more spectacular – find out for yourself when you go off-road on an island tour in an all-terrain vehicle*. When the mild wind carries the scent of the flowers into Funchal and you enjoy the evening atmosphere of this amphitheatre bay, the natural spectacles of this cruise will slowly draw to a close.
