    Your ship - HANSEATIC inspiration

    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.

    Tuesday, 29.03.2022

    Fuerteventura/Spain, from 7.00 to 14.00 hrs

    Fuerteventura has much more to offer than just sand and fantastic beaches – the wildest of the Canary Islands is shaped by barren lava landscapes, rugged coastlines and tranquil villages. Experience Fuerteventura in all its facets and delve into the traditions and everyday life of the islanders. Explore the island’s former capital Betancuria and Ajuy Caves* or learn the secrets of aloe vera*. Alternatively, soak up the sun with some beach time* and enjoy the fine warm sand between your toes on the island’s many beaches.

    Wednesday, 30.03.2022

    La Palma, from 7.00 to 22.00 hrs

    Featuring volcanoes, forests and dark beaches, the “Isla Bonita” of La Palma will charm you with its diverse vegetation. The capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma, has great cultural and historic value and boasts many 16th- and 17th-century buildings. Take the opportunity to explore the old town at your own pace and stroll along the Avenida Maritima with its typical wooden balconies. Nature lovers can take a ride to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park* along breathtaking escarpments to one of the world’s largest calderas. A hike in La Palma’s rainforests* takes you to lush vegetation with laurel trees and majestic ferns.

     

    Thursday, 31.03.2022

    La Gomera, from 7.00 to 22.00 hrs

    A subtropical climate and millions of years of erosion have given La Gomera its character. An island tour* will take you up-close to the timeless natural beauty. Imagine you’re in a Himalayan mountain village in the valley of Hermigua and be awed by the Garajonay National Park, which is said to have an ancient witches’ meeting place at its centre. For a mystical alternative, enjoy a hike through the enchanted forest*. The laurel trees are often wreathed in mist, and a magical aura fills the air. A stroll through the small city of San Sebastian de la Gomera will prove equally atmospheric in the spring sunshine.

    Friday, 01.04.2022

    El Hierro, from 7.00 to 0.00 hrs

    What will satisfy your curiosity on the volcanic island of El Hierro, which is over a million years old?

Go for a sporty e-bike tour along the coast* or get to know the island as a hiking paradise*. Take in the volcanic landscapes, rock formations and eucalyptus and pine forests. Your explorer’s heart will be filled with joy – very fittingly given that the biogeographical name for the region is Macaronesia, meaning islands of happiness.

Alternatively, explore the green north of the island*, where the Agaete Valley reveals a unique array of flora with cacti, dragon trees and agaves. Idyllic Puerto de Mogan and the golden Maspalomas Dunes await on an island tour to the south of Gran Canaria*.

     

    Monday, 04.04.2022

    Lanzarote, from 7.00 to 17.00 hrs

    On the fiery island of Lanzarote you’ll encounter its volcanic origins at every turn. How about a hike through the lunar landscape* in Timanfaya National Park, a realm of lava flows, volcanoes and craters? Immerse yourself in the typical relaxed and fun-loving charm of the island as you walk through the little streets of Arrecife. Trace the footsteps of César Manrique* and dive into the island’s colours. The famous painter was inspired by the bold contrasts of his home and created works that combine art and nature perfectly. With your heart filled with the inspiration of spring, enjoy the last evening on board before you return home from this multifaceted cruise.
