More than ice

Experience the Antarctic and the Arctic on board our new expedition ships, the HANSEATIC nature,
HANSEATIC inspiration and HANSEATIC spirit, with no more than 230 other guests.

The Antarctic is our planet’s great unknown – and an even greater adventure. From November to February, our expedition ships will explore the kingdom of the penguins in the Antarctic Circle. The best time to head for the Antarctic is when winter arrives in Europe. Whether it’s a long or short cruise, our diverse routes will ignite your pioneering spirit.

Travel with us into the Arctic in summer when the ice opens up the path to the far north. Mighty glaciers, deep fjords, polar bears and whales await you there. Join us on cruises to Spitsbergen, Greenland and the Canadian Arctic between June and September – which region fascinates you the most?

Please note: Only the cruises on the HANSEATIC inspiration are conducted in both English and German. Cruises on the HANSEATIC nature and HANSEATIC spirit are German-speaking only.
