How to make your holidays on Thassos more affordable!

Greece is a paradise for your summer holidays, it’s hard to find such diversity elsewhere. Greece is more than our ancient history and culture, the wonderful beaches, the delicious food, Greece truly has something for everyone and at a price to suit your pocket! Where you choose from one of the hundreds of islands or the awe inspiring mainland!

Thassos, one of the most special islands, also known as the Emerald Island, is well worth visiting. Situated in the North Aegean sea, a short ‘hop’ from the mainland and very convenient for either Kavala Airport – KVA (20 minutes to the closest ferry port) or Thessaloniki International Airport – SKG (a comfortable, less than 2 hour drive/transfer, to Keramoti or Kavala for the ferry boat). Thessaloniki Airport is the second largest airport in Greece and because of that has the added advantage of more incoming routes and a wide choice of carriers, from budget airlines to major national airlines.

Once you have decided how you want to get here, the next step is to decide on what kind of accommodation you want, and which part of the island you would prefer to stay at.

Top 5 Places on Thassos where you need a Jeep

Thassos has a paved (asphalt) road network, in the main in reasonable to good condition, which lets you get around the island and visit all of the mountain villages.

Of course Thassos has many other spectacular places to visit which are not accessible from the ring road or any of the paved arterial roads. There is a whole network of unpaved roads which gives you the chance to discover the ‘other side of Thassos’! To access these magical places you have a couple of choices, you can walk, or you can rent a Suzuki Jimny or Jeep Renegade from us and arrive safely and in comfort. Please note that we only allow our 4×4 vehicles to go ‘off-road’. We absolutely prohibit our ‘normal’ cars to be driven on unpaved roads, failure to comply with this will result in you being totally uninsured and liable for any damages, the cost of a thorough under vehicle inspection (and the cost of any damage found) and cleaning charges. Just not worth the risk when you are on holiday!

Here are our suggestions to make the most of a day or days out in a 4×4 jeep. Continue reading “Top 5 Places on Thassos where you need a Jeep”
