    Sokcho/South Korea, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Would you like to rediscover Asia? Are you yearning to see more and understand aspects that other cruises don’t explore? Then immerse yourself in the wonder of faraway worlds on board the HANSEATIC nature. This route’s fascinating explorations of the unknown start with a premiere in Sokcho, South Korea. A hike in Seoraksan National Park* against a backdrop of impressive mountain massifs leads through rugged cliff landscapes and valleys full of brilliant autumnal forests. There is an Asian proverb that says that even a plethora of books is no substitute for a good teacher. That’s why your alternative visit to what is probably the most famous border in the world* between North and South Korea at the 38th parallel is the ideal way to gain profound insights and pick up background information. Action and change, politics and propaganda – what course will the divided country take? 

    Wednesday, 07.10.2020

    Ulleungdo (subject to official approval)

    Ulleungdo is another mysterious place: no cruise ship has ever visited this volcanic island. Be among the first guests to discover the rich green cedar forests, rocky cliffs and caves with the HANSEATIC nature. On a walk on the Haengnam Coastal Walking Path*, see how South Korean willpower has forged its way through nature with winding flights of steps and bizarre bridges. A hike to the top of Seonginbong* offers breathtaking views of the island.

    Friday, 09.10.2020

    Karatsu/Japan, from 7.00 to 17.30 hrs

    Surprising facets await you in the Land of the Rising Sun. As one Japanese saying goes: seeing once with your own eyes is worth more than hearing a hundred reports. Your cruise therefore offers plenty of opportunities for individual discoveries – explore the centre of the coastal resort, the sandy beaches and pine forests in Karatsu, for instance. Opt to explore on your own or take a group excursion to Karatsu Castle*. This pagoda-style castle is one of the most beautiful in Japan and is well worth a visit.

The “little Kyoto” and the wild Nichinan coast excursion* combines the historic samurai residences from the Edo period and the green cape inhabited by wild horses.

    Monday, 12.10.2020

    Yakushima, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Uncharted territory awaits at the World Heritage Site of Yakushima in the form of a lush tropical landscape full of the sounds of the many bird species and the Yakushima macaques. The mystical rainforest shrouds itself in secrecy as the mist glides over the rhododendrons, mosses and lichens.

    Tuesday, 13.10.2020

    Amami-Oshima, from 8.00 to 16.00 hrs
