Fourni island as seen from Samos.
Fourni Korseon (Greek: Φούρνοι Κορσέων or Greek: Φούρνοι Ικαρίας - Fourni Ikarias), more commonly Fourni, is a complex or archipelago of small Greek islands that lie between Ikaria, Samos and Patmos in Samos Prefecture. The two largest islands of the complex, the main isle of Fourni and the isle of Thymaina, are inhabited, as is Ágios Minás Island to the east. On the main isle Fourni (town) is the largest settlement and then Chryssomilia in the north the second largest (and third largest overall, after Thymaina). Fourni (town) proper is the main ferry harbour, with ferries also landing on Thymaina.


  1. I feel as if I could spend the rest of my life looking at this view. Beautiful.

  2. Beautiful, it looks like the water is very rough.

  3. I wonder about living in a land so fractioned, boats are probably still a common mean of transportation for people. Impressive and beautiful view...
