Greece-Egypt ferry

Calling all travelers,
I'm trying to get from Greece to Egypt by ferry. It seems like the only line doing that run has cancelled it's service until further notice. Does this mean I'll have to go the long way round? (no pun intended). If I have to go through Turkey, can anybody tell me the best ferry to catch from Greece to get me closer to Turkeys southern borders? I've looked about on the net, but info is patchy for travel in the off season. Thanks!

Greetings from sunny Italy,

I have also investigated on the net but there is no ferry service between Greece and Egypt, if you are in Greece you can reach the following islnds very close to Turkey, Chios, Kos, Samos, Lesvos, I do not know if you have still to pay a tax in Greece when leaving for Turkey, if you arrive to Kos you will have to follow the coastal road till the border more than 1000 Km, an alternative shold be Athens - Alexandropolis by ferry traveling in the night, you are very close to the border and you arrive to Ankara, next day Cappadoocia (worth of a visit) and from Cappadocia to Syrian border 600 Km about. The choice is yours :-)

Not in the middle of winter on a bike! Stick to the coast. Note that the Chios ferry apparently runs all year (but not every day), but some of the other ferries to TR may not run during winter.

If you don't intend to travel to any Arab countries you should be able to go via Cyprus and Israel. There is a recent thread in this very forum on ferries. Rosenfeld is the name of the shipping co.

If you do want to visit Syria or other Arab countries you must not go through Israel. Search the HUBB for tips on how to get to Egypt from Jordan via ferry (Aqaba).

You do have a carnet valid for Egypt, don't you?
