Hapag Lloyd expedition cruises
They do still exist: hidden places, unexplored coasts and legendary routes – some of the last adventures of our time. And there is a ship that allows you to intensively experience this pristine nature: the HANSEATIC, the only 5-star expedition ship in the world*.
Be it the mystical culture of Papua New Guinea or the hospitality of the Inuit, be it grey whales off the coast of Mexico or polar bears in Greenland – every single expedition will reveal new horizons to you. Follow the trails of famous missionaries across the South Seas or sail through the Northwest Passage in the wake of great discoverers. The first-class service, the extraordinary sophistication of 5 stars* and the personal atmosphere provide the perfect setting for your experiences. You will travel in the company of a skilled crew and renowned lecturers whose astonishing expertise will enhance your expedition. On an "Expedition Knowledge", you will discover the unfamiliar within the familiar – our study cruises cast an entirely new light on what you believed to be acquainted with. Discuss fascinating topics with selected experts: from culture and history to politics and economy. Feel at home in far-away worlds – we look forward to welcoming you on board.
