    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.

    Newhaven (Edinburgh)/Scotland, from 9.00 to 19.00 hrs

    In northern Europe, the small HANSEATIC inspiration sets a course for spectacular landscapes. On Scotland’s east coast, be surprised as you explore Edinburgh from its port at Nevhaven. The capital is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an open book of cultural and architectural history. Winding streets, antique and neoclassical architecture, society and monarchy: a walking tour with a castle visit* reveals many facets, Edinburgh Castle being the crowning glory. In the council area of Midlothian, shed some light on the legendary Rosslyn Chapel*. Was this the home of the Templar archive or the Holy Grail? Dan Brown made the chapel world-famous in The Da Vinci Code. A walk on Arthur’s Seat* is like an excursion into volcanology.

    Orkney Islands (cruising off the Old Man of Hoy, Stromness)

    At around 250 m (820 ft), the mountain sets the tone for another of Scotland’s unspoilt regions: the Orkney Islands. By their very nature, the islands are just as impressive as centuries-old cultural treasures. The spectacular Old Man of Hoy stands at the steep red coastline like a proud sailor. As you cruise off the almost 140 m (459 ft) high needle, you will find yourself asking how long this old chap will be able to withstand the forces of nature. From Stromness, your route of discovery will take you back to the islands’ early history. Your journey through time will take in the Ring of Brodgar, Skara Brae and Skaill House*, covering around 4,000 years. Wind, water and walking: an active tour on the Orkneys* will introduce you to one of the most popular hiking routes and show you how the tides shape the coastal landscape.

    Friday, 21.05.2021

    Ullapool , from 7.00 to 19.00 hrs

    The small fishing town of Ullapool is a beautiful spot. Open the gateway to the Highlands with Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and Inverness*. Even if the famous monster doesn’t show its face, the striking castle ruins and the capital of the Highlands will provide plenty of photo opportunities. Scottish whisky has just as much character. Try it for yourself at the Glen Ord distillery*. Inverewe Garden* is the region’s surprise, the effects of the Gulf Stream allowing subtropical plants to flourish.

    Saturday, 22.05.2021 to
    Monday, 24.05.2021

    Inner and Outer Hebrides (Isle of Skye, Isle of Lunga, Iona, St Kilda)

    Lush, green highlands, rugged coasts and the heritage of kings and clans: head deep into the rugged island world of the Hebrides and feel the soul of Scotland – for example on the Isle of Skye. Take an island tour in the north* and explore bizarre rocky landscapes and an open-air museum that reveals what life was like around 100 years ago. A premiere destination then awaits on your Scottish explorer's route: the Isle of Lunga is a haven for numerous species of seabird. Landing on the remote island of Iona will allow you to explore the cradle of Scottish Christianisation at your leisure. Literally as solid as a rock: the steep, towering “stacks” emerge off the coast of the remote island group of St Kilda. Subject to official approval, you will go ashore on Hirta for an island hike.

    Iceland (Seydisfjordur, Bakkagerdi , Djupivogur )

    Iceland adds to your discoveries with Nordic might. At the end of a deep fjord, the fishing village of Seydisfjordur and its historic wooden buildings invite you to go for a walk. The region’s magical side is revealed in Bakkagerdi. Legend has it that the queen of the elves reigns over the bird-inhabited cliffs where countless puffins learn to fly. Djupivogur, one of the oldest trading posts in Iceland’s eastern fjords, is among the region’s most beautiful villages. A glacier adventure to Vatnajokull*, Iceland’s largest and most famous ice field, is an impressive example of natural architecture.

    Westman Islands (Heimaey, cruising off Surtsey)

    Bizarre lava formations and grass-covered hills: untamed nature also shapes Heimaey, the largest of the Westman Islands. Whether alone or with your experts, a visit to the Eldheimar Museum or a hike on the Eldfell volcano will give you a glimpse into the creative power of primeval forces. Volcanic activity also determines your cruise off Surtsey. The UNESCO World Heritage Site, which emerged only 50 years ago, may only be accessed by scientists who observe how life is developing here. The view of the island will become the symbol of your expedition: a breeding ground for fascinating stories.
