The great thing about Greece is that you can easily hop around islands, thanks to the fantastic Greek ferry network that runs all year round. So, if you’re on one island or even the mainland and fancy going somewhere else, you book a cheap ferry ticket, and away you go!
If you’re in Thessaloniki, you’ll undoubtedly know you made a great choice. Located on the Thermaic Gulf, this historic town is packed with Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman ruins. The beaches are also pretty impressive, as well as the gastronomy! But there are so many places to visit in this beautiful country and visiting only one would be a crime!
So, you might feel like visiting Skopelos, a beautiful island in the western Aegean. Skopelos is part of the Northern Sporades, east of the mainland. This island will give you a much slower pace of life, beautiful scenery, and of course, amazing beaches. It’s the type of place where you can kick back, read a book, drink a cocktail, and forget all your cares.
So, how can you get from Thessaloniki to Skopelos by ferry?
Well, it’s pretty easy.
Thessaloniki To Skopelos Ferry
Greek ferries operate all year round. With Seajets, the Thessaloniki Skopelos ferry takes around 3 hours and 40 minutes. However, remember that during winter, bad weather may delay or cancel crossings.
During summer, specifically from June to September, there are four crossings per week, with the ferry arriving in Skopelos town. This reduces between October to May.
You can purchase tickets online or from the ferry port itself; however, remember that these may book up fast during peak season (July and August), so booking online ahead of time is always a safer option. The same goes for when you want to book your return ticket from Skopelos to Thessaloniki.
Distance Between Skopelos & Thessaloniki
The distance between Thessaloniki and Skopelos is approximately 182 km (98 nautical miles), but your journey will pass quickly thanks to the facilities and comfort on board the ferry.
