It is not possible to go on a package holiday from Sweden, and
not from any other country as far as I know, but check with a tour operator
in your country to be sure. Probably the reason is the long boat transfer,
the tour operators do not have the courage to make a chance on Sifnos.
If there had been an airport, the number of tourist travelling to Sifnos
had been completely different, perhaps as many as to Paros
and Naxos. Despite
the lack of package holiday and an airport, it is very easy to travel
BY INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS
The easiest way is to go by air to Athens and continue by ferry
from Piraeus, which has very good boat connections with Sifnos.
The second best option is to fly to Santorini
and continue by ferry from there. It also works to take the plane to Mykonos,
but do not count on as good boat connections from there.
BY DOMESIC FLIGHTS
The closest domestic airport is on Milos.
BY CATAMARAN AND FERRY
Sifnos has very good boat connections with the neighbouring islands
of Serifos and
Milos, as well as with Athens' port at Piraeus. But the islands in the
central and eastern Cyclades are served less frequently. Both regular
ferries and fast catamarans sails every day during high season from Piraeus.
The voyage to Sifnos takes between 2½ and 3½ hours by catamaran
(Speedrunner or Superjet), and about 6 hours by ferry (Adamantios Korais).
The fast catamarans cost more than twice as much as the ferry.
