For technical questions or alternative payment options, please contact us.
Included in the retreat is a shuttle from the local port on Amorgos Island to the retreat center. Participants will be responsible for securing their transportation to Amorgos Island. There are many ways to come to this island and this will depend on your travel plans. Many participants enjoy arriving in Athens a day early and staying a day later in order to have more ferry options and travel flexibility. Once the retreat is confirmed, you will receive complete information about the airports and the ferry options that will bring you to your destination. The center is a 5 or 35-minute shuttle ride, depending on which port you arrive at.
We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
