PLANNED ACTIVITY: GETTING TO KNOW THASSOS ISLAND

Photo album from past excursions in Thassos

Part of the program’s package is a day trip to the island of Thassos, on a Saturday, prior to the day of departure. The students and faculty will be picked up from the hotel after breakfast for a bus ride to the embarkation of ferries to the island. Once we arrive at Thassos a local boat will pick us up for a ride which will cover some of the most beautiful parts of the island’s perimeter. The boat will pass by remote beaches inaccessible by car and will stop in some of them giving the opportunity to the students to swim. A barbecue platter will also be served on the boat. At the end of the boat ride, in late afternoon, students will have the chance to spend a couple of hours walking the narrow streets of Limenas, the main town in the island, and perhaps do some shopping. We will return to Kavala later in the evening.
