Ikaria is an ideal starting point for day or multi-day trips in or outside the island. Visit the neighboring Fournoi with unexplored, unique worldwide, underwater shipwrecks and ruins the famous fish restaurants on the island. Nearby is Samos, Chios and Patmos, with rich historical and religious beauty to discover. Of course, a little further away lie the coast of Turkey, for those who want to experience another culture nearby.


The Island of Revelation, Patmos, lies about three hours from Ikaria and is inextricably linked with Christianity and the Orthodox Church.
