Hi! I would like to buy the greek islands pass but I want to check first which greeks islands are connected and if it worths it (for example I would like to visit mykonos, santorini, milos and creta. Is it possible?! Or is it difficult?). I can't find the connections between islands in the interrail page (it seems as only a few of them are connected) and I would be very happy if someone could solve me this doubth! 

Thank you very much!! :)

Which Islands in Greece can I visit with my Interrail Greek Islands Pass?

The domestic ferries are operated by Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways. You can visit all the islands that they travel to, in total there are 53 unique Greek islands.


Can be found here. The Links to the ferry companies aswell :)

You can find timetables for Greek ferries here: https://www.greekferries.gr It's also possible to check which companies are operating these ferries. You can travel with the Greek Islands Pass using Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways, which cover most Greek islands. Check out this document for all the information: https://www.interrail.eu/content/dam/pdfs/greek-islands-pass-guide.pdf

As a general rule, all islands withing an island group are interconnected. On top of that, most islands have connections with Piraeus, near Athens. Connections between island groups is often done using hubs, like Paros and Samos.

As for your route: this is certainly possible. Between Mykonos and Santorini you might need to change in Naxos or Paros. From Santorini there are direct ferries to Heraklion, Crete, however I'm not sure which company it operates. (note: in case you need more than one ferry on a travel day, you can use the same travel day)
