Albatros Expedition is part of the Albatros Travel Group which was founded in 1986. Eco-tourism and sustainability have always been important aspects of our identity. The Albatros Travel Group is involved in many varied projects around the world with a focus on conservation, humanitarian aid, and education.

We are part of the strategic political initiative UN Global Compact, and Albatros Expeditions has undertaken the goal of adapting its operations and strategy to the UN’s 10 accepted principles on human rights, environment and anti-corruption.

Albatros Expeditions is proud to be a supporting and active member of both the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) and the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO). These two member organizations exist to advocate and promote the practice of safe and environmentally responsible private-sector travel to the Polar Regions. Members challenge each other to do better and minimize the impact on these fragile environments.

We have initiated a green initiative onboard our Albatros Expedition cruises to reduce chemicals released into the ocean and lower the energy used onboard. All single use plastic items have been eliminated, and refillable water bottles are given to all our guests at the beginning of each voyage. All waste created in work areas is sorted, and we are implementing recycling stations in key public areas for the use of our guests. We only serve sustainable seafood onboard complying with the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) to ensure the purchase of species approved as sustainable.

On our Albatros Expedition cruises, we have a program of onboard fundraising to projects, that have a global and local positive impact on the areas we operate. This program includes raffles, auctions and donations. You can read more about all the projects Albatros Expedition support and do fundraising for below.
