GENERAL INFORMATION

TIP 1 Please keep in mind: the earlier you will land in Skiathos the more options we will have to find an alternative in case of bad weather.

TIP Often there is no direct response between airplanes and ferries. So in the case of an evening arrival, you will probably need an overnight stay. For this reason, it is advisable to check your air tickets along with the ferries.

TIP Ferry tickets are usually available. However, you must book your tickets for the Northern Sporades on time especially during the months of July and August.
