Our Commitment to Sustainable Travel
Choosing a rail or river cruise holiday is a great first step to
travelling more sustainably. For us, the journey is a very special
part of the experience and choosing to travel by rail has the added
benefit of reducing your carbon-footprint, with rail widely
considered to be one of the greenest ways to travel.
Our excursions are led exclusively by local guides and where we
can, we include walking tours, a more environmentally-friendly way
of getting to know the places we visit. Your itinerary includes
experiences and activities run by locals and we'll often choose
family run establishments, rather than large-scale hotel and
restaurant chains, making sure our holidays financially benefit our
local community hosts.
Rail is widely considered to be one of the greenest ways to
travel. When it comes to river cruising, our stylish Amadeus river
cruise ships use the latest fuel-efficient technology, with water
and energy saving practices as standard, providing eco-friendly
luxury. We embrace the best waste management practices to ensure
we're reducing plastics and recycling, and when it comes to dining,
we are committed to serving local produce, brought onboard at each
port of call.
The environmental, social and economic benefits of sustainable
travel are just a small part of a bigger aim, we believe tourism is
a great way to promote new habits and learn about new
