Special Festival Bus Transport – Book it
This year, the Festival has been designed to enable Festival participants to get to and from all the hikes & events, by bus from the main towns (Gavrio, Batsi, Chora and Ormos Korthi).
Where possible, you will be able to use Regular KTEL buses to reach the hike meeting point in time to check-in for the hike and to return at the end of the day. No pre-booking is needed for the Regular KTEL Bus just pay on the bus and show your Festival ID to get a 50% discount.
Where this has not been possible, Special Festival Buses have been arranged to take participants between the main towns, meeting points and hike starts. These will be clearly indicated on the Booking Form, as these must be pre-booked. Please pay special attention to booking the Special Festival transport, so do take a look at the Festival Program to assist you.
If you are unsure or have any questions about the Festival Bus Transport, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, for our advice and recommendations.
Festival Terms and Conditions
- 3 Day Cut-off for booking hike and events
Our festival hikes and events are dependent on transport and the host communities who provide the festival meals. We are required to give these organisations three days’ notice of the visitor numbers so that they can plan capacity for vehicles, seating and food.
Your volunteer Hike Guides are there to lead and support the hikes. We have to plan the number of volunteers we need to support each hike.
As a consequence, to attend a Festival hike or event, you must have registered and booked the hike or event at least three days before the event. For example, if you wish to register and book a place on October 13th festival day, you must have registered and booked by October 10th at the latest.
Festival Terms and Conditions
The Festival is dependent on the collaboration and contribution of multiple organisations and individuals, e.g. Cultural Associations, Scientists, Guides, Carriers, and others. The Festival Hikes and Events are highly dependent on weather conditions. The Festival Organizing Team reserves the right to make changes to the program due to weather or force majeure.
In case of a hike cancellation, you will be notified as soon as possible, by text message on your mobile phone or by email, as you provided as part of registration. If the hike is cancelled due to unsuitable weather conditions, we expect to proceed with the meal events. A refund will only be made if a hosting Cultural Association cancels a meal event.
If a refund is available, you will receive a communication to inform you about the cancelled event, or hike, and to contact email@example.com.
