Skopelos Guide

The Greek island of Skopelos is located in the north western Aegean Sea and is one of the Northern Sporades group of islands. The island is to the east of the Pelion Peninsular on the Greek mainland and to the north of the island of Euboea. On a clear day the neighbouring island of Skiathos can clearly be seen from Skopelos. The island's port is located in the island's main town, also called Skopelos and is located on a bay on the island's northern coast.

This green island has many varieties of flowers, trees and shrubs growing on it and is one of the greenest islands in the Aegean Sea. The local vegetation is mainly comprised of forests of Aleppo Pines, Kermes Oaks, a small forest of Holm Oaks, Oleo-Ceratonion maquis, fruit trees and olive groves. Because of the need for Pine trees which were used to build ships, the island's Oak species have largely been replaced by Pine forests.

The island is served by hydrofoils and ferries from the ports of Volos Magnesia and Agios Konstantinos, Phthiotis on mainland Greece which also allows connections to and from Alonissos and Skiathos. In summer there is also a ferry to and from Kymi in Euboea.

Glossa Guide

Located on the Greek island of Skopelos, one of the Northern Sporades group of islands, is the town of Glossa which is the island's second largest town. It is around 25 km to the north of the island's capital called Hora. Glossa is characterised by its traditional charm and the ruins of ancient towers and buildings that have been discovered around the area. Papadiamantis called Glossa "the tall village", perhaps because it is located in the mountains and is around 300 meters above sea level and commands lovely views and has managed to remain largely unspoilt. The town has many narrow streets where it is common to still see women dressed in traditional outfits called "foustanes".

The town's narrow streets, typical Macedonian houses, with two floors, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, is regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Sporades group of islands.

Skopelos is connected by ferry to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, Skiathos, Alonnisos and Thessaloniki during the summer.
