Patmos is remote and difficult to reach.

If you are uncertain about coming here, then don’t!…

…however if you are ready to make the trip and be part of the Patmos Experience then please find some hints below:

The island can be reached by one of the following imaginative and cinematic ways:

A. Fly to Kos, Leros or Samos – stay over night – take the fast ferry to Patmos (2.5h)

B. Fly to Athens – arrive before 18.00 – cross the city – take the overnight boat to Patmos (8-9h) – cabin, sleeping bag or deck of cards are strongly advised

C. Fly to Mykonos – have a cocktail – Rent a Chopper (half an hour)

D. Hire a private Yacht / Hydroplane / catapult and arrive in style

The festival is doing its best to establish relationships with travel industry leaders and help our guests complete their journeys.
