Ikaria is basically a large, mountainous rock, sticking out of the Agean Sea. There are very few places on the island that are flat and although the island is only 100 square miles, travel takes a long time because there are so many twists and turns on the roads. The map below shows the road from the airport to the village. Although it is less than 10 miles the way the crow flies, it is approximately 23 miles of road and takes close to an hour driving time.
