The Spirit of the Sea
The connection between the people who lived in Greece and the sea goes back thousands of years. Long before the Greek Gods defeated the Titans and took their place on the peaks of Olympus.
“Thalassa” was the name Ancient Greeks gave to the “Spirit of the Sea.” For them, the mesmerizing blue of the Aegean held a divine essence, personified in a lady-like figure. Thalassa survives to this day as the Greek word for sea. If you pay attention, you can still hear her whisper to you while you marvel at the azure skies and blue rooftops of the whitewashed Aegean houses.
Still untamed and mysterious, she is seducing you into one more journey…
Thalassa Blue is the crossroad where your passion for travel meets your desire to explore local communities & support socially responsible tourism.
As travel service sites have multiplied throughout the years, discerning travelers understood that, while the web can be the ideal place to gather information, it takes a personal touch or a local connection to reach the hidden gems and discover local experiences.
And, Thalassa Blue’s customers have come to depend on our holistic approach: a unique understanding of our customer’s needs, a dash of imagination and a logistics purview to complement a range of unparalleled experiences that we never stop crafting.
