North Aegean Islands  
The Link Between Europe and Asia  

North Aegean Islands

Lying virtually between two continents, Europe and Asia, the islands of the north-eastern Aegean comprise the principle islands of Chios, Lemnos, Samos and Lesvos. They actually set the eastern borders of the Aegean Sea and spread along the coasts of neighbouring Turkey. Mountainous, green and mantled with forests, these islands are ideal for hiking but also blessed with long stretches of lovely beaches. Having common characteristics concerning both history and landscape, they were firstly inhabited in ancient times by Iones. Although somewhat less frequented, the islands have a very well-developed tourist infrastructure, capable of meeting the requirements of the most demanding holidaymakers, as well as congress organisers, while the smaller islands have recently become favourite weekend destinations for people who expect a holiday overflowing with customs and traditions.

Lesvos

Lesvos the home of ancient lyric poet Sappho, has a unique diverse landscape: a petrified forest, marshlands, olive tree groves and beautiful beaches. The entire island is integrated in UNESCOĒs Global Geoparks Network. With a history lost in the mist of time, important pilgrimages, unaltered cultural tradition and natural environment, Lesvos offers visitors unique scenery and experiences.

Lemnos

Lemnos the site of impressive rock formations and Ancient Poliochni – the first city in Europe with a social and civic structure – vineyards and hamlets untouched by time, offers visitors unforgettable vacations. The azure beaches at Gomati, Nevgatis and Avlonas are ideal for relaxation, while the beach at Keros is popular among surfers.
