    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.

    Isla Mocha/Chile

    A feeling of great freedom and pioneering spirit are in the air as the HANSEATIC inspiration sets a course for natural spectacles and delves deep into Chile’s intricate system of fjords. You can get up-close to the countless passages and nautical challenges on the extensive outside decks, glass balconies and the deck tour at the bow. Let your yearning for adventure run wild, surrounded by snow- and ice-covered hills. Isolated, untouched, unspoilt – your cruise through the fjord landscape will give you an intensive experience of the varied flora and fauna. Improve your ornithological knowledge with an independent shore visit on Isla Mocha, an unspoilt nature reserve with more than 500 species of bird. Chile’s landscape presents the visual proof of the unbelievable energy in the Earth’s core where several tectonic plates meet.

    Chile’s northern fjords (Chaiten, cruising through the northern fjords, Caleta Tortel, Puerto Eden, passing the Pio XI Glacier (Seno Eyre))

    You’ll be fired with enthusiasm by the three volcanoes in Chaiten that exemplify this primeval world. There is no limit to the awe-inspiring sights on our flexible expedition in Chile’s northern fjords; as we cruise, the captain and crew will select the most exciting routes to stunning experiences. The picturesque route to Caleta Tortel, the city of bridges – connected by walkways made of cypress wood that are 7.5 km (4.7 mi.) long – is very special. Meet the little more than 90 inhabitants in Puerto Eden, who live in the middle of “nowhere”. The excitement on board will increase as you enjoy the far-reaching views of majestic glaciers from the extensive outside decks. The Pio XI Glacier creates an outstanding impression as the largest ice mass in South America. With its bizarre craggy surface, it sparkles blue and white. You will glide between icebergs great and small as you take in the impressive views from a Zodiac.

    Chile’s southern fjords (passing the Calvo Glacier and Amalia Glacier, passage through the Kirke Narrows, Puerto Natales, cruising through the Strait of Magellan)

    Chile’s southern fjords offer the extraordinary every day with thrilling glacier adventures. The HANSEATIC inspiration allows plenty of time for intensive experiences and observations on your cruise. The journey becomes the destination, as impressively reiterated by the passage through the Kirke Narrows – a route to Puerto Natales measuring just 100 m (328 ft) wide. The port city can often only be reached by plane, but with us, you are surrounded by nature and may even see dolphins, whales and seals during your excursions. One of Chile’s highlights, with mountains reaching 3,000 m (9,843 ft) at their peak, is the Torres del Paine National Park*. Over 100 different species, including rheas, flamingos and Andean condors, live between glittering waterfalls, extensive forests and shimmering aquamarine mountain lakes. A trek to the Base Las Torres* offers the opportunity to observe the natural surroundings whilst on the move.

    Punta Arenas

    The pioneering spirit of the golden age of seafaring will bowl you over in Punta Arenas, too. From there, a hike through Magallanes National Reserve* will take you into a world of diverse flora.
