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.
