South Shetland Islands, Antarctic Peninsula
Enjoy unforgettable moments when, for example, you set foot on the Antarctic mainland near to Paradise Bay. Snow-capped summits surround the bay, where icebergs the size of houses drift and glaciers tower hundreds of metres above. The gigantic glacier cliffs, such as those of Neko Harbor, provide a unique backdrop. Gentoo penguins stretch as far as the eye can see, for example on Cuverville Island. One of the most impressive shipping passages in the world is the Lemaire Channel: mountains up to 1,000 m (3,280 ft) high line the strait of water. The Neumayer Channel and Port Lockroy provide panoramic views of glaciers that are no less breathtaking.


Weddell Sea
When cruising in the Antarctic Sound, the deck becomes your front-row seat for unique natural spectacles, for example when water is suddenly parted by the fluke of a majestic whale. The Weddell Sea is home to breathtaking ice formations, some of which are as tall as a house and covered by Adelie penguins and dense pack ice. How far can your expedition ship go? For example, in 1903, the Nordenskjold expedition was forced to wait ten months to be rescued on the volcanic Paulet Island. Today, the island is home to countless penguins and, like Devil Island, makes for a very lively spectacle.

Antarctic Circle
A magical boundary for seafarers and explorers: 66° 33’ S. The further south you go, the more rugged and icy the surroundings. Thick ice fields are a common sight here, the glaciers seem more dominant, and more icebergs drift on the water than in the north. The HANSEATIC nature knows no boundaries here. Where the weather and ice have more influence than ever on the route the ship will take, the experience and flexibility of the captain and expedition crew are needed more than ever. For insights into an icy world that very few experience. Simply magical.
