Abstract: We prove that every $ {C^3}$ diffeomorphism of the circle with an irrational rotation number (and some $ {C^2}$ diffeomorphisms as well) are approximately transitive. This provides a class of examples of approximately transitive transformations which are smooth but non-measure-preserving.
