Loutraki/Glossa

Planning to spend a day on Skopelos while we are on Skiathos at the end of May so, as we have visited Skopelos Town previously, we thought it would be good to try Loutraki/Glossa. Have done a little bit of research and am a bit confused about how easy it is to get from one to the other - i.e, Glossa looks to be a lot higher up than Loutraki - is there a bus - is it walkable? Help, please!

Hey and welcome shepre:-) The ferry ride across is about 10 min..although the ticket will say 'Glossa', you actually disembark down at the fishing village of Loutraki;-) Yes, there is a bus that goes up stopping and passing Glossa perched on high enroute to Skopelos Town..You can most definetely walk it if you so choose..depending on your pace averages out to about half an hour..give or take! It's a beautiful walk..gorgeous views..winding road..many grab cabs to go up and walk down..your call;-) Enjoy!

Hi,

There is a bus, the Skopelos town bus, times are on the stop by the Quay. So you could take the bus up and walk down. Whatever you wish.

The path is not marked on any map I have, but it's a very easy to walk.

From the bus stop in Glossa (on a tight bend) head into the village proper about 300 yds to the centre and then go left downhill, and you should end up on the cobbled track, complete with lamp posts, which ends up In Loutraki by a concreted river bed, just about next to a couple of tavernas overlooking the sea, very relaxing. It crosses the road at a couple of points.

It's pretty obvious if you look at Google Earth, so just print out a view of the area.

It's less than a mile so downhill barely 30 mins walk.

Many thanks, both - bus up, walk back down sounds good to me! Hope to spend a bit of time in Loutraki before we head up to Glossa for a wander around there and something to eat before wandering back to return to Skiathos - all will depend on timetables but we can deal with them when we get there !!!

Our pleasure:-) You'll find Loutraki is a small place..quaint and traditional..take a walk along the waterfront..past the Church..and take in a lunch at Flisvos..you won't miss it even ferrying in since it's painted on the seawall in bold red letters;-) There are 2 cafe/snack places right on the main road there where the buses/cars enter/exit the village..enroute up to Glossa..each on either side..both great;-) Keep us posted..keep enjoyin'!

You need to find flights to Skiathos - then its a short ferry ride to Skopelos.

You can fly from Manchester not sure about Newcastle
