    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!

    Tuesday, 24.09.2024

    Individual travel arrangements to Hamburg, departure 18.00 hrs
    Evening cruise on the Elbe

    This premiere brings together seven rivers in five countries: the Elbe, Thames, Seine, Loire, Gironde, Tagus and Guadalquivir. Wonderful-sounding names with evidence of great history on their shores – embedded in picturesque nature. You can already enjoy the first river panorama during the evening cruise on the Elbe all the way to its mouth in the North Sea.

    London/United Kingdom, arrival 8.00 hrs

    With red double-decker buses, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square, London has a lot for you to discover. Sailing under Tower Bridge in the early morning, the HANSEATIC nature reaches its berth directly in the city. This means that you’ll only have short distances for plenty of explorations or a visit to Windsor Castle*. Would you rather sink into an armchair with tea and scones or enjoy a pint in a cosy pub? Our travel concierge will be happy to organise the perfect evening for you*.

    Friday, 27.09.2024

    London, departure 9.30 hrs
    Cruise on the Thames from Tower Bridge

    Saturday, 28.09.2024

    Cruise on the Seine
    Rouen/France, arrival 13.00 hrs

    Enjoy a smooth transition from summer to mild autumn weather in France, as nature slowly adds shades of red and yellow to the trees. A cruise on the Seine showcases the metamorphosis of nature before the Gothic cathedral and the Le Gros-Horloge astronomical clock in Rouen tell of turbulent times. A walk through the old town will also take you to the market square where Joan of Arc met her tragic end in 1431. You’ll be on the trail of Claude Monet* in Giverny or you can admire Norman abbeys* in the valley of the Seine*.

    Sunday, 29.09.2024

    Rouen, departure 13.30 hrs

    Monday, 30.09.2024

    St Malo, from 9.00 to 18.30 hrs

    Defying the daily tides and the privateers of the past, two locations on the coast are particularly impressive: the fortified city of St Malo and the monastery island of Mont-Saint-Michel*. Both are shaped by the tides just like Cancale – the Breton oyster capital*.

    Tuesday, 01.10.2024

    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 02.10.2024

    Belle-Ile, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Wild, vast and wonderful: Belle-Ile shows off its autumnal beauty. Alongside unspoilt nature, experience the dreamily romantic harbour of Le Palais as you stroll along the promenade.

    Thursday, 03.10.2024

    Nantes, arrival 7.00 hrs

    In Nantes, too, the splendour of churches, kings and dukes competes with the autumnal colours. The parks of the mansions and castles on the Loire* are particularly attractive in the light of October.

    Friday, 04.10.2024

    Nantes, departure 7.00 hrs
    Cruise on the Loire

    Saturday, 05.10.2024

    Bordeaux, arrival 10.00 hrs

    Bordeaux is famous for cultural treasures and culinary delights. The HANSEATIC nature will moor overnight here, giving you lots of time to wander through the illuminated old town into the evening. An excursion to the Medoc wine region with a visit to a vineyard* is bound to quench not only your thirst for knowledge. The Atlantic, oysters and idyllic sandy beaches characterise the coastal resort of Arcachon and Europe’s largest sand dune*, almost 3 km (1.9 mi.) long and over 100 m (328 ft) high.

    Cruise on the Guadalquivir
    Seville/Spain, arrival 15.00 hrs (subject to the tides)
    Overnight stay on board

    The cruise on the Guadalquivir takes you deep into the heart of Andalusia. Only a small ship such as the HANSEATIC nature is able to approach Seville like this. Get to know the city on some explorations in the historic centre or enjoy the last evening of your cruise with tapas and a glass of sherry.
