A pilgrimage to Mount Athos is a unique opportunity to experience the spiritual life of the monastic state. This is not a type of travel that can be taken lightly. You should plan your route beforehand and think over all the details of your trip.
The simplest and the most convenient option would be to choose one of our pilgrimage tours, which include a planned itinerary, flight, accommodation, issuance of the Diamonitirion, accompaniment of a professional guide, etc. However, if for some reason you decide to travel on your own, you must necessarily take care of some of the details of the trip. For example, the pilgrimage to Mount Athos begins from the airport, from where you have to get to the port in Ouranoupolis.
For your convenience, we provide a transfer booking service to Ouranoupolis. You can order a car on the Hellenic Taxi website by filling out a simple online form. Confirmation of the transfer reservation will be sent to your e-mail address.

The driver meets you at the airport with a nameplate, escorts you to the car and helps with your luggage. If you are traveling with small children - be sure to specify it while making a booking. In this case we will make sure that the car is equipped with a booster seat. This service is free and is provided to you for maximum convenience.
The pilgrimage to Athos is an important point in the spiritual journey of any orthodox Christian, when the thoughts are directed more to the divine than to the secular. That is why it is so important to take care of the practical side of the journey beforehand, or let us take care of it.
