                                                  Follow these three easy steps to create your own Greek
                                                  Island Hopping itinerary.
                                                  Step 1 Select the islands you wish to visit. If you plan
                                                  on taking ferries between them, it is important to ensure
                                                  the islands belong to the same groups, as most ferry
                                                  companies only operate within the one group. Those
                                                  that do operate between different groups may not offer
                                                  a regular service; for this reason it is recommended to fly
                                                  between islands of different groups. As some islands do
                                                  not have direct flight connections, it may be necessary
                                                  to fly via Athens.
