By Car

(N = Notia: which means South and does not stand for North, B = Borea: which means North – think of the Aurora Borealis…)

There are two alternative ways to reach us from Athens/Athens airport:

A) Over the bridge

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 Euro. You will drive about 15 minutes and exit North in the direction Lamia (ΛΑΜ ΙΑ)- 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 Euro.  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)

 

 

B) 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 EURO each person (prices are approximate).

Once on Evia you will be in Edipsos heading southeast towards Ilia-Ηλια and Rovies-Ροβιές, following the coastal road. It takes about 20 min to drive to Rovies and 30 minutes to drive to Limni–Λίμνη.

Ferryboat notes:

Ferry boats connect the Northern part of the island with the mainland. There are two arrival / departure points within 10-15 minutes of one another on Evia; Edipsos/Aidipsos and Agioskambos.

Arkitsa on the mainland connects to Edipsos/Aidipsos and this is also a great alternative route  not only because it is such a beautiful way to see the island from the boat, but also when travelling with small children as the mountain road can be difficult for those prone to travel dizziness. We recommend enjoying the mountain road for one part of the journey and the ferry for the other. This ferry journey lasts approximately 45 minutes and this ferry accepts motor vehicles also.

 

Glyfa on the mainland connects to Agioskambos and this is the best way to travel to Evia from Northern Greece and if arriving with a flight from Volos or Thessaloniki. The journey lasts approximately 20 minutes and this ferry accepts motor vehicles also.
