    The new expedition class

    The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC inspiration took place in Hamburg on 11 October 2019. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC nature (2019) and HANSEATIC spirit (2021), the small and state-of-the-art expedition ship explores remote destinations and visits the world’s most fascinating natural landscapes on challenging routes.

    The new expedition class – which offers space for a maximum of 230 guests (or 199 guests on Antarctic cruises and Spitsbergen circumnavigations) – sets standards in terms of variety, comfort and personal space. This is why our ship has more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Find out more! HANSEATIC inspiration was launched in October 2019.

    Southern Azores (Santa Maria )

    Central Azores (Pico , Sao Jorge , Faial)

    Pico
    The island’s namesake and Portugal’s highest volcano at over 2,350 m (7,710 ft) shapes the scenery here, as do more than 100 other volcanoes and the deep-black rocks. Explore the home of Verdelho wine, famous to this day, with a walk through the vineyards*.

    Sao Jorge
    Along the steep coast there are unforgettable views of the many fajas, the lush, green stretches of land formed by cooled lava, and the expansive plateaus strewn with volcanic cones.

    Faial
    The island is known as the “blue island” due to its many hydrangeas. Relics of the whaling era bring history to life here. Take a local boat trip* from Faial in search of whales and dolphins.
