    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.

    Cruising through British Columbia’s Inside Passage/Canada

    Guided by the same feeling of great freedom experienced by the early settlers, your adventure begins with a two-day cruise through British Columbia’s Inside Passage.

You might catch your first glimpse of bald eagles flying through the air, and maybe even whales.

    Alaska’s Inside Passage/USA:
    Ketchikan, from 6.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Ketchikan, centre of Native American culture, provides fascinating insights into Alaska’s soul. From here, take the opportunity to go bear watching at Anan Creek* where, with luck, you will spot black and brown bears. Take a flight over the Misty Fjords* to see the deep inlets, snow-covered mountains and roaring waterfalls. A jeep and canoe trip on Revillagigedo Island* allows you to experience this idyll “off-road”.
