    Your ship - HANSEATIC nature

    The new expedition class

    The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC nature took place in Hamburg on 4 May 2019. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC inspiration (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!

    Tuesday, 01.08.2023

    Cruising through British Columbia’s Inside Passage/Canada
    Alaska’s Inside Passage/USA:

    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. From the nature Walk, enjoy views of myriad islands, thickly wooded mountains and small Native American settlements slowly passing by on the shore. You might catch your first glimpse of bald eagles flying through the air, and maybe even whales.

    Wednesday, 02.08.2023

    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”.

    Kupreanof Island

    Discover the home of the Tlingit people on Kupreanof Island. Visible from afar, the world’s largest totem pole carved from a single tree trunk symbolises their culture – your experts will explain its meaning during an individual visit.

    Sunday, 06.08.2023

    Cruising in Endicott Arm and Tracy Arm

    This is also the best time to watch whales, sea lions and bald eagles – for example when cruising in Endicott Arm. In Tracy Arm, don’t spend all your time watching the wildlife: the steep rock faces and rugged glacier ice are equally enchanting.

    Monday, 07.08.2023

    Chichagof Island

    The small settlement of Elfin Cove on Chichagof Island is one of approximately 1,100 islands off the coast of Alaska.

Take to the skies and go bear spotting by seaplane*. Go for a walk in Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park* in the footsteps of 19th-century trappers. Take a seaplane flight over Kodiak Island* and enjoy further highs before the natural spectacles slowly draw to a close.
