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.

Many of the inhabitants are fishermen, although during the summer season the population is also occupied in tourist activities, mostly room rentals and catering. On the main island are a number of beaches such as Vlychada, Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki, and Bali.
