Sustainable Travel

We treasure the places we visit and respect the people and wildlife that live there.

We are committed to protecting both the environment and the cultural heritage of our destinations. Like you, we are aware of the demands group travel can make on local environments. That is why we travel only in small groups with a limited number of participants.  “Traveling small” enables us to visit places that would be out of bounds to larger groups, and it also means that when we visit, we do not overwhelm.

Wherever we travel, we are careful to minimize our impact, partnering with local providers of services who share our values, and, where appropriate, visiting and contributing to organizations that work to protect endangered species, preserve biodiversity, and help communities become economically sustainable in an eco-friendly way.

When we partner with Swan Hellenic on cultural voyages and expeditions, we do so with confidence that the ships and their operations surpass all international standards for environmental protection.

In particular, all Swan Hellenic ships feature catalytic reduction units to reduce harmful emissions when cruising and dynamic positioning systems to avoid dropping anchor in fragile environments. Solid waste is subject to aggressive recycling, and wastewater treatment systems are state-of-the-art. Energy consumption aboard is restricted by the use of LED lighting and intelligent climate control systems. Single-use plastics are reduced to the bare minimum, and all cleaning products are certified as fully biodegradable.

When you travel with Thalassa Journeys, you can rest assured that you are doing so in a way that is designed to preserve the rich heritage of nature and culture for future generations.
