    Moorea/Society Islands

    Are the South Seas really how we imagine? How realistic are Gauguin’s Tahitian Women or the film Mutiny on the Bounty? The HANSEATIC spirit sets sail for remote islands in search of answers. Visit dream destinations large and small away from the common cliches. This explorer route embarks on its thrilling course from Tahiti. Its smaller, green sister island, Moorea – which you will visit the next morning – is one of the most diverse in French Polynesia. Immerse yourself in the tropical beauty beneath the waves on a lagoon trip with snorkelling*.

    Austral Islands (Rurutu, Tubuai, Raivavae, Rapa Iti)

    The Austral Islands are well off the familiar cruise routes – pristine, unspoilt and remote. Here the lives of the inhabitants remain almost entirely traditional. Curiosity, pioneering spirit, hunger for experiences: each of the islands ignites the passions of lovers of the South Seas in a different way. Ranging from idyllic white beaches to densely overgrown volcanoes and a fertile plateau, the landscape has everything an explorer’s heart desires. Again and again, the Zodiacs will reveal true insider tips, independent shore visits allowing you to experience pure, unspoilt nature. Explore Rurutu with its rugged mountains and lush vegetation. A fascinating natural wonder can also be found at the edges of the coral reefs around the lagoon of Tubuai, one of the most beautiful in Polynesia. Enjoy a day on the beach where Fletcher Christian of the legendary Bounty once wanted to settle. Emerald-green lagoons, coral reefs, mango and banana trees – Raivavae is like a miniature version of Bora Bora. The island inhabitants will welcome you in the morning with a traditional dance ceremony. A landing will take you into the caldera – the volcanic heart – of Rapa Iti. This is the most isolated and most southerly inhabited island in French Polynesia.

    Mangareva/Gambier Islands

    You will set foot on historic terrain on Mangareva, the main island in the Gambier Islands, which is the cradle of Polynesian Catholicism. The well-preserved Saint-Michel cathedral, which dates back to the 19th century, attests to the efforts of French preachers to convert the population.

    The history of the Bounty is alive on Pitcairn, where – depending on the local conditions – you can meet the descendants of mutineers who used it as a hideaway back in 1790. After dreamlike views of the uninhabited Ducie Atoll, the most southern atoll in the world, the HANSEATIC spirit will reach a magical destination.

    Hanga Roa/Easter Island/Chile, arrival 9.00 hrs

    Many legends surround the mysterious Easter Island* and the moai statues – the mystifying stone giants. Are they evidence of a highly developed system of ancestral worship? How were they transported? What caused the civilisation there to vanish? Follow the myths and legends* on a journey through almost 1,000 years of settlement history shrouded in sagas, which will also lead you to the mystery of the “birdman”*. The facts behind the millennia-old cults and the stone heads are among the many secrets of the South Pacific that you will contemplate on relaxing days at sea during presentations by and conversations with the experts. Just like James Cook, who sailed to the South Seas in the 18th century and turned the region into a dream destination, you will return home with a treasure trove of experiences.
