    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!

    Uummannaq/Greenland

    The fascination of the Arctic is almost impossible to convey through travel reports or films. It needs to be experienced first-hand – and the HANSEATIC nature makes this possible. The largest island in the world greets you with the Greenlandic welcome of “Tikilluarit” and opens the doors to natural adventures. Your first stop is Uummannaq with its colourful houses and the striking backdrop of a heart-shaped mountain shimmering in red. Venture further north and visit places where polar explorers made history – now you can add your own chapter to the tales of adventure. Take a look behind the curtain of the Canadian Arctic and unlock its intriguing secrets. The ship is perfectly equipped – with the highest ice class for passenger ships and the many years of experience of the captain and crew.

    Canadian Arctic  (Baffin Island, Devon Island, southern coast of Ellesmere Island, Pim Island)

    Baffin Island is filled with the pioneering spirit of its namesake William Baffin. On the flexible course, the HANSEATIC nature will take time to explore the deep fjords, high cliffs, lakes and glaciers that shape the scenery. Enjoy first-hand and active experiences with Zodiac rides and landings. The largest uninhabited island on earth, Devon Island, is craggy, dry and red-soiled. In Dundas Harbor (Nunavut), an abandoned station of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police bears silent witness to the isolation. Keep a lookout for polar bears, musk oxen and Arctic hares against the striking cliff backdrop. The HANSEATIC nature will continue north to reach the southern coast of Ellesmere Island. Unique vistas of the Arctic will open up before you, including in Fram Fjord and Starnes Fjord. The route north takes you to Smith Sound between Greenland and Canada. How far can the ship go here? The landing on Pim Island is another challenging feat. If the gamble pays off, you will feel the drama of the Greely expedition, which fell victim to the icy winter of 1884 on the small, rocky island. With luck, you might see some polar bears from the deck. In 1909, the polar explorer Robert Edwin Peary travelled through the more northerly Nares Strait to become the first person to reach the North Pole.

    Nares Strait (Hans Island)

    In 1909, the polar explorer Robert Edwin Peary travelled through the more northerly Nares Strait to become the first person to reach the North Pole. What this region means today will become clear as you reach Hans Island: Canada and Denmark have been laying claim to the island for years. However, the border dispute could be settled in 2022.

    North Greenland (Etah, Siorapaluk, Qaanaaq, Cape York)

    Barely any other ships sail the waters of north-west Greenland, so it is a privilege to explore these places that are beyond the reach of most people. In the 20th century, you would have reached the geomagnetic pole in Etah. Today, the pole is further west. However, this deserted place will still draw your pioneering spirit like a magnet. Knud Rasmussen and Robert Edwin Peary had base camps here. Perhaps you might spot whales and seals as your route continues to Siorapaluk. Greenland’s most northerly settlement lies directly on the fjord, surrounded by mighty sandstone mountains in shades of light red and purple. In Qaanaaq, pick up the trail of the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen again, who started numerous expeditions in the region. In Cape York, the Zodiacs will take you to explore icebergs set in spectacular scenery.

    West coast of Greenland (Ilulissat, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)

    The impressive glacier in Ilulissat is a colossal natural sculpture. A hike with your experts will take you to see the icebergs it produces. A very special spectacle in Disko Bay takes the experience to a new level as breathtaking ice formations drift slowly through the water – with you at the centre as you cruise or take a Zodiac ride. After that, Sisimiut provides diverse insights into Nordic life. By the end of this, the once blank pages of your own logbook will be brimming with your new Arctic experiences.
