    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!

    Spitsbergen (Liefdefjord, Magdalenefjord, Ny-Alesund, 14th July Glacier, Prins Karls Forland)

    With the highest ice class for passenger ships and a crew with polar experience, your expedition ship will chart a flexible course to the first of the three worlds of discovery on this cruise: Spitsbergen. Exhilarating days of expedition await you in the home of Arctic foxes and whales. The polar bear reigns here as the king of the Arctic and with a little luck, you’ll be able to spot these creatures from a respectful distance. Watch sparkling ice formations as they drift past the ship, and not only on the mighty Liefdefjord. They are evidence of the Monacobreen, which calves into the inlet. A reverent silence will accompany your visit to the Magdalenefjord with its historic whalers’ graves framed by an awesome backdrop. In the small town of Ny-Alesund, you can feel the history of past adventures in the air – and questions of what the future will bring, as scientists are researching the consequences of climate change here. Marvel at the tongue of ice against dark mountains as you reach the 14th July Glacier – another of the destinations on this explorer route determined by the ice conditions. Unforgettable wildlife sightings also await you on the small island of Prins Karls Forland, where walruses like to relax on the gently sloping coastline and provide you with more great photographs.

    North-west coast of Iceland (Saudarkrokur, Isafjordhur, cruising off Latrabjarg)

    Nowhere else in Europe is the power of the earth more evident than in Iceland. Find out about typical life near the Arctic Circle in Saudarkrokur. A visit to the fishing town of Isafjordhur transports you into the harshly beautiful Westfjords with deeply carved coasts and steep table mountains. Explore the Dynjandi waterfall* hidden in the mountains or embark on a hike to the Troll’s Seat*, the striking ridge above the town. The time cruising off Latrabjarg will be accompanied by thousands of puffins and guillemots that live on the cliffs brimming with birdlife.

    Saturday, 27.07.2024

    Reykjavik, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Leave Reykjavik and experience the power of nature with some active exploration. The adventure on the Langjokull* is a fascinating insight into Iceland’s second-largest ice cap and the hot springs of Deildartunguhver. Take a flight over the island of fire and ice* with glaciers and volcanoes at your feet. Ride Icelandic horses* across the surreal lava fields and hilly green landscapes.

    South-east coast of Greenland (Skjoldungen Sound)

    Your small, manoeuvrable expedition ship is also perfect for the breathtaking natural backdrops of Greenland. As you follow the call of the Arctic, you’ll start by heading to the remote south-east. Endemic vegetation and magnificent panoramic scenery welcome you to the shores of Skjoldungen Sound as you gaze out from the Zodiac. The experts will draw your attention away from the scenery of impressive mountain ranges to point out special features in the blossoming tundra.

    Tuesday, 30.07.2024

    Cruising through Prince Christian Sound (depending on ice)

    As you cruise through Prince Christian Sound, colourful fishing huts will be reflected in the icy waters, which are fed by the glaciers. It’s a good idea to keep your eyes and ears open during the expedition. A cry of “Whale up ahead!” could sound from the bridge at any time and the many open deck areas provide the best opportunities for sightings.

    Wednesday, 31.07.2024 to
    Sunday, 04.08.2024

    West coast of Greenland (Arsukfjord, Nuuk, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)

    In Arsukfjord, weathered houses recall bygone times: this small mining settlement has been abandoned but provides a home to musk oxen which, with a little luck, you will see. After tranquillity and remoteness, Nuuk reveals its almost European flair between its modern centre and historic colonial harbour. The national museum explains Inuit history in interactive exhibition spaces. Back in the polar expanse, one of your Zodiac rides will present what is perhaps Greenland’s greatest natural spectacle in icy Disko Bay. The remarkable old town of Sisimiut provides a variety of insights. Learn about Inuit culture and whaling history from the 17th century in the “museum village” or trace the past with a hike on Tele Island. Pause in this remote place and reflect on your expedition: these three islands will stay with you forever.
