Welcome to our Eco-Voyager Program
For Havila Voyages, the environment and sustainability are on top of the agenda. Even though we have the most eco-friendly voyages along the Norwegian coast, we continuously try to find new ways to increase positive impact on the environment. To maximize our efforts, we want to give our guests the choice of contributing together with us.
The Eco-Voyager Program is the Havila way of mobilizing our guests to take care of our environment by reducing energy, water consumption, and waste generation on our coastal cruise from Bergen-Kirkenes.
We believe that coastal voyages can play a role in protecting our planet and its biodiversity, and connect us with what makes us human: discovering new places, and cultures and getting in touch with new relationships, people, and experiences. We want to connect our guests with the environment and make sure that our voyages represent what we stand for: Lead, Share, Care.

What you can do
As a guest on Havila Voyages you are already contributing. But for those who want to do more, we have made a non-mandatory checklist to give you and all our guests the opportunity to partake in our Eco-Voyager Program. By being mindful of some minor aspects on board, you can make a big difference.
The Eco-Voyager checklist
- Room service every other day.
- Use lights when needed, unplug chargers.
- If you like, you can recycle your waste at the ship’s environmental stations.
- Reduce food waste – order as needed.
- Engage in local culture, and sign up for the ship’s educational program
- Reuse towels, as much as you like.
- Be mindful of water use during showers and brushing teeth.
- Use the screens for information instead of paper.
- Feel free to drink the water in your cabin, or from the dispensers on board. It is safe.
