Travel to Evia, Greece
It is very easy to reach the island of Evia. Situated to the east of mainland Greece, the island of Evia is accessible by ferry boat or by road. The bridge of Chalkida connects the central region of Evia with the mainland, making it extremely quick and easy to reach the island from Athens.
There are also frequent ferry services that operate to the central, northern and southern regions of Evia, and these services run on a daily basis ( weather permitting ).
To reach the northern region of Evia, you can either travel upwards from the capital town of Chalkida, which is located in the central region. If you are travelling to North Evia from Athens and the south of Greece, you can take the ferry boat from the port of Arkitsa across to the famous town of Edipsos.
For those travelling to Evia from the northern regions of Greece, you can take the ferry boat from the port of Glyfa, which takes you across to the town of Agiokambos in North Evia. Agiokambos is only a short distance away from Edipsos.
There is no airport in Evia, so if you are travelling to Greece by air, you will take a flight to the Athens International Airport and from here take the road up to either Chalkida or Arkitsa and travel across to Evia. You can use the local bus services to reach Evia, though ideally, it would be best to rent a car and to drive up to Evia. From Athens to Chalkida, the journey is approximately 60 minutes depending on traffic, and to Arkitsa is it approximately 90-120 minutes.
