Ikaria Island, Greece.
By air: Ikaria now has a small airport at the eastern tip of the island, connected to Athens by a mid-afternoon flight every day, except on Mondays: an airport transfer bus connects flights with Ag. Kirykos 11 km away.
By boat: Ferries between Piraeus and Samos serve both of the island”s two ports – Evdilos, on the north coast, almost daily, by either fast boat (5 hours, summer only, from Piraeus) or slow (8-9 hours, year-round); and Aghios Kirykos, on the south coast, with 3 connections a week on the Samos-Piraeus route.
The F/B Samos Spirit also stops at Ag. Kirykos on its way between Samos and Fourni 3 times a week;
and in the summer there are fast, Flying Dolphin hydrofoil connections (1 hour) to and from Pythagoreio on Samos, 4 times weekly, dropping to 2 weekly for the half-season months of April, May, September and October.
Caïques leave Ag.Kirykos most afternoons during the summer for Fourni, and on Mon, Wed and Fri for Manganitis and Karkinagri, at the western extremity of the island.
