You have just arrived in Greece and specifically in Volos where you’ve been told that you can catch a ferry towards the Sporades Islands. You are actually a backpacker and you haven’t planned much in advance. You don’t wanna spend a lot of money and you have been thinking of a way to combine seeing multiple islands at the same time.
So yes, this page is for you. Below I can suggest you a quite affordable route during which you’ll manage to see and visit three amazing Greek islands, Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonisos. Jump on a ferry and start exploring them! You can even arrange a hop on hop off ferry tour, which you’ll actually manage to find quite easily once you‘re in Volos. Islands for all the tastes and moods! Island number one; Skiathos, the most popular island of Sporades group.
It is famous for its sandy beaches, the lush greenery and the vivid nightlife, which is why holidays in Skiathos are particularly popular among young visitors. Island number two, Skopelos, a beautiful island that attracts mostly families and romantic couples. It mostly became famous to the world when scenes of the Hollywood movie Mamma Mia were filmed there few years ago. Island number 3 Alonisos, an authentic island mostly known for its incredible natural beauty and the amazing beaches.
