There are not too many active volcanoes in the world which allow a walk on the crater´s edge, seeing and smelling the sulphureous fumes and feeling the heat oozing from below your feet; all this combined with fairly easy accessibility. This said, Nea Kameni is a pile of rocks and lava and access to the top requires basic physical condition... More

This was a great excursion ! We took a boat trip from santorini - Fira. We first went to the hot springs and jumped in the hot springs. After that we were taken to the volcano. It was a great experience. It is definitely a very long uphill hike , it is hot and it is going to take an... More

Nea Kameni is the new volcanic island in the middle of the Santorini caldera, you need to be rather fit to climb it and remember to bring a big bottle of water with you, it is hot and the hike is up hill. comfy shoes are a must. But once you are up there it is well worth it, just... More

Very interesting experience, join one of Europe's Managing volcano, which is even slightly pregu smoke and about 10 cm off the ground if you do not scrape the ground was still quite hot, if not to say a fiery recommend you do not go to the water in the hot weather because the top of the route is approximately 2...

We took the cable car down to the Old Port then a boat over to Nea Kameni. It was a very hot day. It took about 30 minutes to hike up and about 20 minutes back down. You definitely need to wear sturdy shoes but it is a nice view once you get to the top.

The volcano is a fascinating sight and a vigorous walk through an amazing landscape that is only 400 years old. This was the site of the second biggest volcanic eruption in human history and is set in a fantastic arena of the caldera. The trip is part of a round trip around the sights of the Caldera all well worth... More

OK, it's a bit of a hike up to the craters, the landscape may not be to everyone's taste, and there no facilities on the island, but it's worth the 2 euros entry just to do it. Take water with you, you'll need it.

You need to get there via boat. There is an inexpensive entrance fee I think is 1 or 2 euros. Walking to the summit is like a 30 min hike but its worth it. You will see quite amazing views.

I enjoyed this excursion as part of our Greek Islands cruise. The schooner ride to the volcano was lovely, with refreshments and clean bathrooms available. The hike is a bit strenuous, but I liked the workout, and the views were amazing. I'm mildly obsessed with volcanos and geothermal activity, so I loved getting to hike on an "active" volcano. We...

We went to the Nea Kameni Volcano on the Afroditi boat dinner and sunset tour from Caldera's Boats website. The volcano is well maintained and very clean even if this is a popular tourist attraction in Santorini. There were maps and information panels everywhere. To get to the top crater it takes about 20-30 minutes of hiking. You can see... More
