Ikaria is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea, southwest of Samos, approximately 50 kilometres from the Turkish coast.
Ikaria reflects a beautiful balance between nature, freedom and development, having recently been named ‘The Best Greek Island for Nature Lovers’ by the news television channel, CNN. It also offers large areas of natural beauty, stunning mountainous landscapes, beautiful beaches and friendly locals, providing plenty of activities for everyone.
The island is also, according to legend, the birthplace of Dionysus, the god of wine. So, as you would expect, there are plenty of excellent wineries and picturesque vineyards which are well worth seeing.
Given Ikaria’s central location in the Aegean Sea, it is an excellent point of departure for many locations in Greece. From Ikaria’s ports on the north and south coasts, there are numerous ferry routes available to the mainland and surrounding islands, so there’s a great deal of choice.
The Cyclades are an archipelago in Greece, southeast of the mainland in the Aegean Sea, containing just thirty three inhabited islands from a total of two hundred and twenty.
Quintessentially Greek, this is arguably the best selection of islands in the Aegean. Standing out from the crowd are Mykonos and Santorini, earning international stardom with their white-washed villages, glistening waters, rugged coastlines and jumping nightlife. Uninhabited, the centrally located Delos is the supposed birthplace of Apollo, boasting intricate mosaics and breath-taking monuments of antiquity. They offer everything you would expect from this beautiful part of the world; so depending on where you step off the ferry, you can hike glorious trails, relax on fine beaches or indulge in fresh, classic Greek dishes.
The demand for ferries in Greece is incredibly high, resulting in top-quality services and frequent sailings to and from many destinations. The Cyclades are no different, with regular ferry routes from numerous islands, within the archipelago, and from ports on the mainland, including Piraeus in Athens.
