Samothraki bus schedules

Public transport is one of the ways you can use to get around the island (although having a car or scooter would be better).

Local buses depart from Kamariotissa (the station is right near the port), on three main routes:

  • to Chora, the capital of the island
  • to the western and south-western villages (Alonia, Lakkoma, Profitis Ilias)
  • to the northern villages (Palaiopoli, Kariotes and Therma; in the summer the buses also reach the campsite)

Additionally, on Saturdays and Sundays throughout July and August there's a regular bus route to and from the beaches of Kipos and Pachia Ammos.

During high season, buses run every day and only Monday through Friday during the rest of the year.

Hello! I am planning to travel to Samothraki in early October 2023, and will likely stay at the Samothraki Village Hotel. I was hoping to visit the Mikro Vouni archaeological site while I'm there (if it's open), but I won't have access to a car. Is there a way to get to the site by bus, or would taxi be my only option?

Hi Emily,
Unfortunately Mikro Vouni is closed.
