Samothraki bus schedule in 2024

Samothraki bus schedule in 2024

Public transport is one of the ways you can use to get around Samothraki (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.

You can purchase the tickets from the bus driver.

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.

Hello. Do you have New time table for July 2023? Thanks.
27 Apr 2023, 10:56
Not yet.

We have just arrived on Samothraki today and will be here until Thursday. Will the buses be running tomorrow as it is May 1st? And is the timetable available from May 2nd? Thanks
30 Apr 2023, 19:21
I think so, but please ask directly in Kamariotissa.

Do you know if dogs are allowed in the buses?
Which would be the schedule in July and August from Kamariotissa to Pachia Amos?
Thank you, Adrian

Hi Adrian,
I'm sorry, I don't know about the dogs. The schedule for July/August wasn't announced yet. All I can tell you (so you can get an idea) is that last year the buses for Pachia Ammos left on Saturdays and Sundays at 11.15 from Kamariotissa and returned at 17.30 from Pachia Ammos.

Hi there. We are travelling to Samothraki at the beginning of August. Are there only buses to the beaches on the weekend? Or do they also run during weekdays? Also how much would a bus cost?
19 Jun 2023, 10:53
The bus schedule for August wasn't announced yet, but last year the buses only went to Kipos and Pachia Ammos on the weekends. The price of a round trip ticket to the beaches will probably be around 12-13 Euro.

Hi, Thank you for the useful information, I will be visiting Samothraki in two weeks time, to get to the Sanctuary of the great gods from Kamariotissa, do I take the bus to Palaiopoli? And how much does it cost if I take a taxi?
28 Jul 2023, 19:21
Yes, you should take the bus from the port of Kamariotissa and get down at Palaiopoli. As for the taxi - it may be around 10 Euros, but maybe you could share it with other people.
30 Jul 2023, 00:17
Will the bus schedule change much after Aug 27? Or just not on Sat&Sun?

30 Jul 2023, 09:13
Most probably there will be fewer departures and the buses won't go to Kipos and Pachia Ammos
13 Aug 2023, 14:54
We arrive this week, is there only one bus from kamariotisa to terma on Wednesday?
13 Aug 2023, 18:30
No, there are buses on 07:45, 10:15, 12:30, 15:30, 18:35, 22:15 and 00:30.
28 Aug 2023, 06:27
Hello, are the updated schedules posted at the stop near the port? Or will they also be posted here? I'm planning to take buses today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Thank you!
28 Aug 2023, 09:36
Hi Jon, the schedules are updated.
28 Aug 2023, 10:14
Thanks! What is L, M, J, V, S, D?
28 Aug 2023, 10:18

Thanks! I thought it was French!

Hallo ich komme freitags um 17:50h mit der Fähre auf Samothrakis an. Ist es richtig, dass der letzte Bus um 17:45Uhr nach Therma abfährt?

What would be the best way to get from the camping to Lakkoma?
