Drive To Lefkas

Drive to Lefkas

A great option for anyone looking for an adventure

If time is no issue and you have a set of wheels that will make the 2690 kilometres from the UK to Lefkas, then why not consider driving. For those of you that don’t know, Lefkas island is conveniently located just metres from the mainland and it just so happens that we have a permanent ferry acting as a swing bridge between the mainland and our island. Accessing Lefkas could not be easier by car. It’s an island you can just drive on and drive off without having to worry about whether the ferry timetable is up to date or if there is a ferry strike!

Explore some of the beautiful towns and cities of Europe on route and make another holiday of this exciting trip.
