Getting to ​​​Naxos


By Air: 
There is not an international airport in Naxos, so most people fly to Mykonos and take a short ferry from there. An alternative airport option is Athens where you can then take a domestic flight over to Naxos. These domestic flights can be very expensive if they are not booked in advance.

By ferry: The Mykonos to Naxos ferry route is operated by 3 ferry companies. SeaJets operate their crossing up to 6 times per day, Cyclades Fast Ferries 7 times per week & the Golden Star Ferries service is available up to 3 times per day. This takes about 30 minutes. The ferry from Athens to Naxos is a daily ferry that departs from Piraeus port, the main port of Athens. A normal ferry to Naxos takes about 5 hours to reach Naxos from Piraeus. There is also a ferry to Naxos from Rafina port, the other port of Athens, and the trip takes about 4 hours.

  • Alongside the excellent equipment, lessons, food and accommodation, the thing that brings me back year on year is the atmosphere, as made by the people who go to UCPA.

  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.

  • Describing the UCPA is difficult. Not because there is a lack of adjectives to adequately convey the amount of fun you’ll have while you are there, the friendliness of the instructors, the quality of the food...

  • The quality of the equipment is second to none and the ability to easily swap things over if they’re not quite right is so useful.

  • The food is great and there is tons of it from breakfast, lunch, snack time (after your day on the slopes) and dinner in the evening. My favourite meal this year was on the Thursday evening when it was...
