Provided that you can be patient, you can get everywhere you want with public means of transport, almost everywhere. Nevertheless, you can't exspect any regular traffic or that everyone will wait for you. Specially the bus- and ferryservices are often very early booked up in summer. Therefore we urgently recommend to care for the next transport immediately and to buy the tickets as soon as possible.

Of course we can't guarantee any of these schedules, because things can always change if you are there. Nevertheless we try to keep our information always up-dated and we are also looking forward to getting the latest news from you.
