Getting around in Ikaria
It is a pleasure to discover Ikaria by private car or scooter. The scenery is magnificent, and you will never stop being surprised by the wonderful views. Best of all is that the traffic is minimal, so you can look around even when you are the driver. The main roads are in good condition, but it is just the other way round with the many small roads that cross the island in all directions.
BY SCOOTER AND CAR
Car is undoubtedly the best option since the distances are long and the small roads in the mountains are in bad condition. Car and scooter rental places are available in Agios Kirikos, Armenistis, Evdilos, Gialiskari and Nas. Before you set off you need a good map. You need a map to plan your tour, but also to locate you, as many road signs are in Greek.
The bus makes a rare visit to Armenistis.
The bus was previously something of a mystery, everyone talked about it, but nobody had seen it. Much like the Flying Dutchman. But nowadays it seems that it exist, and it runs - on schedule, but nog very often. All bus service starts out from Agios Kirikos. There are several buses daily to and from Therma, Evdilos, Christos Raches, Armenistis and Nas.
Taxis are a good alternative if you do not want to drive, and a must if you arrive by ferry late at night. Most often the taxis have fixed rates.
Ikaria is an excellent hiking island. And that is one of the reasons why we like Ikaria so much. So if you like to hike you will love Ikaria.
There are roads that you will like a lot. As the tunnel to Manganitis.
