Getting here

You can reach Leros daily from Athens by aeroplane or boat.

By plane (flights every morning with Olympic Air) it will take you only 45 minutes, but the planes are very small and you have to book a very long time in advance, especially in summer time!

By boat, the most comfortable company is the Blue Star Ferry that travels by night 3 times a week from Piraeus to Leros in about 8 hours. Other companies also make the journey, but with older and much slower boats.

You can also reach the island from Kos (2 hours trip) or Rhodos (4 hours trip) daily with the "Catamaran" (Dodekanissos Express and Dodekanissos Pride), or the hydrofoil (Aegean Flying Dolphin).
