At the agreed time, one of our private vehicles will be waiting for you with your assistant to transfer you to the airport of Athens, where you will board your flight, lasting about 45 minutes, to the stunning island of Skiathos.

Upon your arrival in Skiathos one of our representatives will be waiting for you to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and explain a little more about the island.

The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and discover the charms of the island and its beaches. The island is formed by the city of Skiathos and the communities of Koukounaries, Kanapitsa, Vromolimnos and Troulos.

Tip: At daytime, stroll around the town’s paved streets with the cute white houses, red tiled roofs and colourful gardens.  In the evening, head to the ultimate entertainment hotspot, the pedestrianized street by the Old Harbour.

After a delicious breakfast, our representative will transfer you to the port of Skiathos, where you will board the ferry to the island of Skopelos. This island is famous for being the movie set for the musical Mamma Mia! and the scenes will immediately come to life as you set foot on the island. Upon your arrival, we will meet you and transfer you to your hotel, while also introducing you to this famous island. The rest of the day is free for you to relax and explore its capital (Chora), built amphitheatrically between two hills.

Tip: Be sure you visit the Kastro area, you will be amazed by the wonderful views!

After your breakfast, you will have a whole day to visit the most stunning places in Skopelos, strolling through the traditional alleys and enjoying a lovely meal in one of its bustling taverns.

If you wish, you can start by visiting the locations, where the movie Mamma Mia! was filmed and, most likely, also inspired you to visit the island. Agios Ioannis at Kastri is the small church, where the wedding scene was shot and, while the climb may seem steep, the views are worth the effort.

The most famous beach in Skopelos is Kastani, also shown in the film and, although it can get very busy and crowded, it is so vast that you are bound to enjoy it.  Also, on the southwest coast of the island, you will find the wonderful, sun-drenched beaches of Panormos and Milia, where you can swim and sunbathe. 

However, as they are located at some distance from Chora, we suggest hiring a car or a motorbike, while for more secluded coves, remote bays, and serene beaches, we suggest hiring a small boat.

Optionally, as there is much more to see on this beautiful island, you have the option of extending your stay in Skopelos by adding extra nights during step 1 of 3 of your reservation.

Blue Ways Tip: You will be fortunate if you watch the beautiful sunset and the idyllic views from Glossa, the 'Balcony of the Aegean'.

In the morning we will enjoy a lovely breakfast and then, we will be transferred to the port to take the ferry to Skiathos.

This is the most famous island of the Sporades, the only one with an airport, which not only serves domestic but also some international flights, too, especially during the summer season. Thanks to its beaches and the fun atmosphere, it is also known as the "Capri of the Aegean".

Upon arrival at the port of Skiathos, we will be transferred to our hotel, where you can first take a rest and then set out on a splendid tour of the town at your own pace.

Tip: Skiathos' nightlife is legendary, so make the most of it!

After a delicious breakfast, you will have the morning free to enjoy the island of Skiathos.

In the afternoon and at the time indicated, one of our vehicles will take you to Skiathos International Airport to check in your luggage and benefit from any tax return as a result of your last minute "tax free" shopping.

From all of us at Blue Ways Travel, we hope to see you again soon to create new and extraordinary moments that will be lovingly etched in your memory.

Have a nice trip! Or as Greeks say: "Kalo taksidi!"

Blue Ways  Tip: Before you leave do not forget to try the herb pie 'hortopita' and the spoon sweet 'aspro', meaning white, because of the colour of the blanched almonds used for its preparation.
