    The highlights of this cruise

    Svalbard: legend, magic and nautical challenge. The small HANSEATIC nature really comes into its own here. The route is redetermined daily by the captain and crew, as the weather and ice conditions determine the flexibility of the itinerary. During a tour with your team of experts in Ny-Alesund, you will learn exciting facts about climate research. The 14th July Glacier is one of the most spectacular of the 2,000 or so glaciers in the archipelago. Experience the equally fascinating Smeerenburgfjord and the mighty Monacobreen in Liefdefjord. There is a good chance of spotting polar bears at a respectful distance from the deck. Will the pack ice in North Svalbard clear the way through the Hinlopen Strait? The ability to complete a circumnavigation depends on this passage. From here, further adventures follow on the east coast of Svalbard, such as at Alkefjellet. The “bird mountain” is inhabited by thousands of birds from numerous species. You will land in Palanderbukta with the Zodiacs and look out for reindeer and Arctic foxes on a hike through the tundra. Walrus herds like to lie on the flat ledges of rock in Torellneset. Depending on the conditions, we’ll continue through the narrow Freeman Sound between Barents Island and Edgeoya, both uninhabited islands. Can you spot reindeer in the wild on Barents Island? However, the sight of surfacing whales beats all of these experiences. If you’re lucky, the world’s largest and heaviest creature – the blue whale – will even make an appearance. In Hornsund, the bird cliff of Gnalodden marks the end of your breathtaking adventure. You’ll now join Barents and Amundsen in the hall of fame of Svalbard’s explorers.

    ---- The ice conditions determine the course here (see map).

    The itinerary depends on official approval, weather and ice conditions. The natural experiences and wildlife sightings described are possibilities on this expedition and are not guaranteed. The crew will endeavour to complete the circumnavigation of Svalbard. Circumnavigation is not guaranteed.

    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!
