How to get there
There are direct charter flights from several countries; England (Gatwick and Manchester), Germany (Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Koln, Munich), Norway (Oslo, Gardermoen), Denmark (Copenhagen) and Holland (Amsterdam). There are indirect flights from anywhere in the world going via Athens where you could stop off for a couple of days to visit the Acropolis and Monastiraki (the old market). Alternatively for a more romantic trip you could also take the ferry from Piraeus, the port of Athens.
Another culturally interesting route would be to fly to Turkey and then get the boat across to Lesvos from Ayvalik, observing the Turkish and Greek influences in both nations travelling from one to the other. You could fly to Ismirn where from the bus ride to Ayvalik would be a few hours or to Istanbul and take bus (8 hours) or flight to Ismirn and then a bus.
