Traveling to Thassos

Ferries From Kavala and Keromoti to Thassos Island

It is important to point out that there are days when the ferries can't move due to the wind conditions. This means that you could be stranded a day or two on the mainland trying to get to Thassos or on Thassos, trying to get to the mainland. This is more common in the months from December to April but could occur at anytime of the year. When this happens, the arriving traveler can easily find accommodations on the mainland if necessary. The departing traveler will most likely know in advance of severe weather and can depart the island a bit earlier than planned to make sure that flights are not missed. These bad spells can last for hours to days, but normally no more than 1 to 2 days.

To get to Thassos the winter there are several routes, depending on the time of the day you want to travel and or arrive and also the day of the week.

1. From Heathrow or Luton to Athens overnight and then the first Olympic flight up to Kavala in the morning, usually about £240 each.

2. From Gatwick, daily to Thessalonika and then by taxi (€110 each way if pre booked) or hire car to Keramoti . This necessitates an overnight stay in Thessalonika or Keramoti as the flight lands at about 10.30 in the evening.

3. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays you can fly to Kavala from Heathrow via Dusseldorf. There are numerous flights from Heathrow to Dusseldorf so this is quite a good option. It necessitates a search on firstly Lufthansa's site and then on Aegean Airways site to see of there are seats available on both parts of the trip. It usually works out about £ 280, but its a good option as it doesn't necessitate an overnight stay or even a very early start.

4. You can also do the Lufthansa trip on a Monday via Munich and on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays via, Stuttgart, but I'm not sure about connections on this trip.
