How to reach us
Over the bridge through Chaikida
From Athens Airport you take the Attiki Odos, which heads West from the airport. There is one toll on this road about 5 minutes after leaving the airport of €2,80. You will drive about 15 minutes and exit North in the direction Lamia (ΛΑΜΙΑ)- EXIT 8. Take care to exit to the right as there are two directions at this exit, the other one heading South to Piraeus.
Follow the National Road North. Upon leaving Athens, there is another toll post of €3,30. Continue on this road for about 30 minutes and take the Chalkida (ΧΑΛΚΙΔΑ) exit until you cross over the bridge onto the island. Once you reach the traffic lights, follow the signs to North Evia(Β.ΕΥΒΟΙΑ).
The signs also say Ag. Ioannis Rossos (Αγιος Ιωάννης ο Ρώσσος) or Prokopi (Προκόπι) or L. Aidipsou or Edipsos (Λ.Αιδηψού). You drive over two mountains, through a gorge and a gentle forested area beside a stream and finally reach the sea again.
Limni (Λίμνη) is at the bottom of a panoramic descent and a right turn and another ten minutes along a coastal road will bring you to Rovies (Ροβιές)continue driving straignt on that road until you see the sign of L.Aidipsou or Edipsos.
Using the ferry
Take the same route as you would to Chalkida, however continue on the freeway another half an hour instead of exiting to Chalkida.
There are 3 toll posts from Athens, (€3,30, €3,85 and €3,85). Continue until you see the sign to Arkitsa-Αρκίτσα where you catch the ferry boat to Edipsos-Αιδηψός on Evia-Εύβοια (it is 17 km after you first see the sea).
The drive from the airport to the harbor at Arkitsa, should take you about 1 ½ hours, depending on the traffic.
The ferry terminal is only a couple of kilometers from the National Road. The crossing takes about 45min and the ferry runs every second hour. Tickets can be purchased at the terminal and the fare is about €16,50 EURO per car and €3,20 for each person (prices are approximate and can change).
