The journey continues across Evia by coach for a further hour and a half until you arrive at the port of Kymi. Here you will take the Kymi ferry to Skyros Island (approx 1hr 40 mins) and arrive in the port of Linaria, where you will be met by Skyros staff who will transfer you to your chosen destination. Please note it will be an early start due to the 10am Kymi ferry.
