    The highlights of this cruise

    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!

    Scheduled flight from Germany to Mallorca 

    Monday, 22.04.2024

    Palma de Mallorca/Mallorca/Balearic Islands/Spain, departure 19.00 hrs

    Tuesday, 23.04.2024

    Menorca, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Where Europe and Africa almost meet, the HANSEATIC nature combines Spanish and Arabian contrasts in the spring for an intensive wealth of knowledge. Your multifaceted adventures on this route start in the Mediterranean with an exploration of Menorca, which has been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Be amazed by the diversity on an island tour* – from forested hills and deep ravines to bays nestled romantically between the cliffs. Mystery envelops the megalithic village of Torralba d’en Salort. The hike in Albufera Natural Park* combines birdwatching around the 70 ha (173 acres) of the lagoon with a taster of the unspoilt fishing village of Es Grau.

    Wednesday, 24.04.2024

    Formentera, from 10.00 to 18.00 hrs
    Ibiza, arrival 23.00 hrs

    Formentera is unjustly – or perhaps fortunately – overshadowed by its sister islands. A catamaran trip* will show you the rugged coastal beauty and the fabulous bays that make inviting spots for a swim. Alternatively, enjoy a thyme-scented trip around Formentera* with fields of colourful flowers and the highest point on the island, the La Mola lighthouse.

    Thursday, 25.04.2024

    Ibiza, departure 18.00 hrs

    Ibiza is just as surprisingly green. This was spotted by the Greeks, who named the archipelago the “pine islands”. Take an independent trip ashore and see for yourself the minimalist architecture of the country houses reflecting the aesthetics of this artists’ paradise.

    Friday, 26.04.2024

    Malaga, from 8.00 to 0.00 hrs

    Malaga is the cultural gem of Andalusia. Dominated by the Castillo de Gibralfaro, follow in the footsteps of Salvador Dalí and Picasso. See the moving lifelines and highlights of the city on a Segway tour* with sustainable electric vehicles. Could there be a more picturesque way of setting the scene for this cruise than a scenic tour to Granada with visit to the Alhambra*? To this day, the “red castle”, a magical palace with extensive gardens, tells the story of the power once held by the Moors.

    Saturday, 27.04.2024

    Relaxation at sea

    Sunday, 28.04.2024

    Tangier/Morocco, from 9.00 to 14.00 hrs

    As you pass the Pillars of Hercules, the Straits of Gibraltar open up a foreign world: Morocco. Here you will see far more than mosques, minarets and medinas. Tangier, the gateway to Africa, is a multicultural melting pot. On a city tour/walk* you will discover the Cave of Hercules, the Cape Spartel lighthouse, colourful souks and the labyrinth of streets in the old town. Discover hidden gems on a walking tour of the artistic town of Asilah*. Enjoy the Mediterranean appeal of long beaches and white buildings.

    Monday, 29.04.2024

    Casablanca, from 7.00 to 20.00 hrs

    The symbiosis between history and everyday culture is reflected in Casablanca. Wide avenues and columns in the art deco style blend in with Moorish elements. Religions also take on their own forms with the Hassan II mosque and the Notre Dame de Lourdes cathedral. Let your senses be filled with the magic of Morocco on a scenic tour with a visit to Marrakesh*, with the colours, spices and scents of the medina and the hustle and bustle of the Jamaa el-Fna square. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Rabat, the white royal city*, with its fabulously decorative Mausoleum of King Mohammed V, also seems like something from the Arabian Nights.

    Wednesday, 01.05.2024

    Porto Santo/Portugal, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs
    Funchal/Madeira/Portugal, arrival 23.00 hrs
    Overnight stay on board

    Inspired by these impressions, head to European soil in the Atlantic: Porto Santo, part of the island group of Madeira – is light, fine and sandy instead of dark and volcanic. On an island tour*, see the most beautiful aspects of the island with its turquoise waters, golden beaches and idyllic villages. Or enjoy some amazing views on an island hike* around the Pico do Facho and up to the Pico do Castelo. The many experiences for the mind and senses on this cruise will provide you with an immense treasure trove of memories.
