You are responsible for your journey and your accommodation should you arrive before Sunday or leave after Sunday. BWC does not have any responsibility in this respect and you cannot submit claims relating to cancellation expenses or damages. It is important for you to take out good travel and accident insurance.
Mytilini is the airport on Lesvos. During high season, some airlines offer direct flights from e.g. Amsterdam. There are no direct flights during low season. In this case you can book a flight to Athens and connect to Mytilini from there, either via domestic air bridge or if you prefer by ferry. You can also look into flights via Thessaloniki. On the Island, you need a (team)car. Contact your team members, so you can share the costs of car rental. Please read the tips for car rental below.

BWC Team House
BWC rents a house in which the teams can stay from Sunday afternoon till Sunday morning (free of charge for volunteers).
The house is located near Kara Tepe and Moria, less than half an hours drive from Mytilini airport. The house accommodates 7 people in single beds in shared rooms.
Please bring your own bed linen (1 person mattress cover, pillowcase and duvet cover) and towels. We do have a washing machine in the team house but no dryer and in winter the laundry takes quite a while to dry.
