    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!

    West coast of Greenland (Uummannaq, Eqip Sermia Glacier, Ilulissat, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)

    Do you love adventure? Are you seeking the unknown in our largely developed world? Your wishes will be fulfilled on two premieres of the HANSEATIC nature along the same route to the legendary Hudson Bay. A nautically demanding pioneering feat that is only possible with many years of experience and a high level of expedition expertise. Your journey there begins in Greenland – with Uummannaq. Proud like the local Inuit culture, a heart-shaped mountain rises up before you. The Zodiacs will frequently take you to places that are almost impossible to reach otherwise – such as the Eqip Sermia Glacier with its ridge that is approximately 7 km (4 mi.) long. From Ilulissat, you can marvel at the glittering masses of ice on a hike to the ice fjord. The icebergs of Disko Bay are also breathtaking – and you will be right in the midst of them when cruising and riding in the Zodiacs. Explore Sisimiut, with its more than 4,000 years of history, in an active way.

    Cruising in Frobisher Bay
    Iqaluit/Baffin Island/Canada

    You will become part of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’s own history of discovery as soon as the HANSEATIC nature cruises through Frobisher Bay for the very first time. This area is very rarely visited on expeditions, as only in summer does a brief window of opportunity to do so open up in these otherwise permanently icy waters. But even now, pack ice fields can be expected from here on. You’ll be entering unknown terrain in Iqaluit. The small capital of Nunavut and its surroundings invite you to outdoor activities*, such as hiking with your experts to the parliament, the igloo church and the museum as well as through the tundra rich in flowers. Observe caribou, Arctic foxes and various species of bird.

    Hudson Strait (Lower Savage Islands, Diana Island, Eric Cove)

    The Hudson Strait is also iced over and not passable for most of the year. If the route is clear, extremely rarely visited destinations await – such as the Lower Savage Islands with good chances of spotting polar bears from a respectful distance. Arctic flora adorns Diana Island with delicate flowers. Perhaps musk oxen and Arctic hares will make an appearance. On the shore of Eric Cove, a hike leads you amidst the diversity of plants and traces of the Inuit. Your experiences grow in grandeur and the impressions in intensity when the heart of this expedition lies before you – the unknown sea of Canada ...

    Hudson Bay (Mansel Island, Coats Island, Walrus Island, Chesterfield Inlet, Marble Island)

    In 1610, the English captain and explorer Henry Hudson searched for the Northwest Passage between Europe and Asia. In doing so, he was the first European to unknowingly explore an inland sea that today bears his name – Hudson Bay. Called the “ice cellar of North America” because it is completely frozen over in winter, it is colourful and lively in summer. The waters are teeming with seals, and whales can appear at any time. Largely untouched by humans, the former trade route for valuable furs and the associated history of the Hudson’s Bay Company still exude an air of great adventure. This is also true of Mansel Island, the territory of tundra swans and eider ducks. On Coats Island, Arctic birds and, if you are lucky, walruses can be spotted time and again – just like on neighbouring Walrus Island, where you will explore the scenery from the Zodiacs as well. What will the fjord and the settlement look like when Chesterfield Inlet is visited for the very first time? Marble Island, in turn, will also surprise you. Made of quartzite, it is the habitat of polar bears and Arctic foxes.
