    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!

    Santander/Spain, from 8.00 to 19.00 hrs

    Do you really know all of Europe’s different facets? Sometimes the best things in life are never far away. Such is the case on this spring cruise, when the HANSEATIC nature sails from south to north – visiting truly beautiful islands that are sometimes lovely and picturesque and other times dramatic and harsh. To start with, Spain takes on masterful forms. As if arranged by the hand of an artist, the old town of Santander is nestled on the hillside above the Atlantic coast. A market visit with pintxos tasting* will put you in the mood for exploring the city on foot. Try the typical little snacks as you walk around. One of the most beautiful towns in Cantabria is the medieval Santillana del Mar*. Palaces, aristocratic houses and the 12th-century convent church will transport you back in time. Villa El Capricho by Gaudi* is extravagant in both form and colour. “The Whim”, as the building is called, combines elements of Modernisme with the Mudejar style.

    Tuesday, 27.05.2025

    Ile d’Yeu/France, from 13.00 to 23.00 hrs

    The French Ile d’Yeu is home to many artists and craftspeople and can be explored independently by bicycle. Alternatively, the picturesque town of Port Joinville with its cafes invites you to take a stroll.

    Wednesday, 28.05.2025

    Belle-Ile, from 7.00 to 13.30 hrs

    Like many impressionists of the 19th century, Claude Monet was also drawn to Brittany and to Belle-Ile. Wild, vast and wonderful: admire its beauty with your own eyes on an island tour* or coastal hike*.

    Thursday, 29.05.2025

    Tresco/Isles of Scilly/England, from 8.00 to 14.00 hrs

    Welcome to the South Seas. The Isles of Scilly, which belong to Cornwall, boast equally as beautiful white beaches, palm trees and lemon trees. The Abbey Garden offers vegetation in its most beautiful bloom after a landing on the small island of Tresco. The mild climate, brought on by the Gulf Stream, allows over 4,000 subtropical plants to thrive here.

    Friday, 30.05.2025

    Dublin/Ireland, from 8.00 to 22.00 hrs

    Dublin is a truly trendy destination. Set out in search for the Irish soul on a city tour with the Book of Kells*: from pubs and parks to Trinity College, your route will take you to see the illustrated manuscript of the four gospels. Mystery in the style of Dublin-born Oscar Wilde surrounds the monastic Glendalough and the gardens of Powerscourt*. No words are needed for the breathtaking views on a cliff walk from Greystones to Bray*.

    Saturday, 31.05.2025

    Isle of Man (Douglas, cruising off Calf of Man)

    As if painted with rolling hills and valleys, idyllic bays and dunes, the Isle of Man lies in the middle of the Irish Sea. From Douglas, you can experience the landscape from a special perspective with a ride on a steam train to Rushen Castle* – one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval castles. As you cruise off the Calf of Man, there is a chance that you’ll be able to spot seals and seabirds. The Zodiacs might also be used, depending on the local conditions.

    Sunday, 01.06.2025

    Inner Hebrides/Scotland (Iona, Isle of Lunga)

    Unspoilt landscapes welcome you to the Inner and Outer Hebrides, where you can explore the cradle of Scottish Christianisation with a landing on the remote island of Iona. The Isle of Lunga is a haven for numerous species of seabird. Walk across the island with your experts in search of puffins.

    Monday, 02.06.2025

    Isle of Lewis/Outer Hebrides, from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Wild and authentic: the Isle of Lewis is a true Scottish beauty. Rugged mountains are interspersed with peaceful lakes and idyllic beaches. Less obvious, but all the more mystical, are the origins of the stone circles of Callanish*, which go back around 4,000 years. Alternatively, a scenic tour to Harris*, the home of tweed, is truly appealing.

    Heimaey/Westman Islands/Iceland, from 11.30 to 18.00 hrs
