    The highlights of this cruise

    Your ship - HANSEATIC spirit

    The new expedition class

    The naming ceremony of the HANSEATIC spirit took place off the coast of Helgoland on 24 August 2021. Together with its structurally identically sister ships HANSEATIC inspiration (2019) and HANSEATIC spirit (2019), 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!

    Chile’s southern fjords (Garibaldi Glacier , Punta Arenas, cruising through the Strait of Magellan, passing the Amalia Glacier , cruising in the southern fjords)

    On the days that follow, the HANSEATIC spirit will perfectly demonstrate its strengths as a small expedition ship. As you cruise through Chile’s southern fjords, the captain and crew will display their nautical skills again and again – for example, when they take you to the mighty foot of the gleaming blue Garibaldi Glacier. Your route also includes a cruise through the Beagle Channel. Several glaciers line the famous maritime route and with a little luck, you might spot humpback whales. Follow the life story of the first person to circumnavigate the globe as you cruise through the Strait of Magellan. The colourful cityscape of Punta Arenas gives way to the panorama of snow-capped mountains on a flight to Torres del Paine National Park*. Or experience the glacier waters from an unusual perspective on a kayak tour in the Strait of Magellan*. If you’d prefer, take a hike in Magellanes National Reserve* and explore the lenga and coihue forests on foot. Your explorer’s heart will beat faster as the HANSEATIC spirit cruises through Chile’s southern fjords. Experience the thrill of passing the Amalia Glacier. Your experts on board will explain what makes it so beautiful and sensitive.

    Chile’s northern fjords (Caleta Tortel , cruising through the northern fjords)

    In Chile’s northern fjords, Caleta Tortel reinforces the impression of remoteness. Its stilt houses are connected by wooden walkways spanning around 7.5 km (4.6 mi.). Humanity may seem small in comparison to this majestic nature, but your memories of this cruise will be monumental.
