On your next trip to the island of Lemnos make sure to consider employing our Lemnos car hire services in order to better take in the myths and atmosphere of the place. Legend has it that the island was dedicated to the fire god Hephaestus and to the hero Philoctetes, whether or not this has had anything to do with the fact that Lemnos has been a very fertile and very fought after island is unknown.
The island is served by the Lemnos Airport, which while not large serves the purposes of the island very well. If you’ll be landing at this airport you can employ our Lemnos car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you.
The island of Lemnos offers a bit of a change from most of the other Greek islands as it features a relatively rough landscape made up of grass and barren, low and rocky hills which on the other hand make it a great place for vineyards and wheat fields.
You can get a great view of the island by visiting the local castle, from where, on a clear day, you can see the Chalkidiki peninsula which contains Mount Athos as well as a few of the surrounding islands. The fact that the island doesn’t feature any mountains makes it so that you can enjoy a great sunset from basically any peak or elevated viewpoint on the island.
The island is a great place where you can see both the traditional architecture of rural stone cottages as well as the more urban-influenced little mansions built in the Neo-Classical style.
The island is home to a plethora of yearly festivals, featuring traditional music and dances but there are also more universally appealing events such as the ‘sardine festival’ as well as other events and summertime outdoor parties.
Once you add to these the handful of sandy beaches, the potential for recreational water sports as well as archaeological digs strewn across the island, Lemnos is a great place to visit for a more quiet type of holiday experience. However don’t forget to employ our Lemnos car hire services in order to best experience as much of the island as possible.
