Insiders’ Tips for Discoverers: The Solomon Islands
The hidden Solomon Islands with their exotic charm can only be explored with a true expedition ship such as the HANSEATIC and her manoeuvrable Zodiacs. Visit their pristine beaches and look forward to encounters with cultures which frequently appear mysterious. You will experience the cordiality of the inhabitants for the first time when you are welcomed by the village elder on Nendoe. Following a Zodiac landing on Santa Ana Island, you will be equally thrilled by the wonderful white beaches and the genuineness of the locals. Only few visitors have the chance to witness the impressive welcome ritual of the warriors of the village of Ghupana with their spears. Uipi Island is another true insiders' tip far away from the usual routes in the remote island world – step into the Zodiacs and land in a lonely lagoon where you can snorkel and swim to your heart's desire against the backdrop of lush rainforest. On the tiny Pirumeri Island, you are free to immerse yourself in the life of the islanders with their colourful dances and their singing.

Tue 01-Apr-2014 - 04-Apr-2014 Papua New Guinea (Rabaul, Garove Island , Kopar/Sepik Fluss , Wewak )
In the Realm of Fire on Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea, an archipelago consisting of more than 600 islands, owes many of its beauties to the untamed forces of the element fire. Even sailing into the port of Rabaul is spectacular – the little town is surrounded by six volcanoes, some of which are still active and emit mystic columns of smoke into the blue sky. Immerse yourself in Rabaul and its history * and visit attractions such as the volcanological observatory. Like Rabaul, Tabar Island belonged to the colony German New Guinea once upon a time. Here, you have the opportunity to go ashore on your own and get to know the fascinating lifestyle of the locals, who are great masters of canoe building and malangan carving.
