Samos Greek Island from Altinkum
We recommend you to book a day trip or overnight tour, we will organize everything for you, such as transportation, return ferry ticket, pick up and drop-off.

Samos Island is part of the North-Eastern Aegean Islands and is located in the southern part of the group, near the Turkish coast, from which it is separated by the narrow Mykale Straits (3 km wide).

This is the most visited island of North Eastern Aegean but keeps its beauty and attractiveness. The island is particularly green, with verdant mountains. Despite the catastrophic fires which burned an important part of the island a few years ago, Samos has kept enough of its forests and vegetation for still being impressive. With this greenery, idyllic beaches of pure white sand and crystalline waters are completing the lovely landscapes of the island.
