Our group of 28 people toured this national geologic park in June of 2015. We took a boat to the island and our guide led us around this volcano which is still an active volcano. It is interesting to see all the different rock formations. A tour of this volcanic area takes about one hour.

Although the geology behind the volcanic island is fascinating, it is definitely not even remotely worth the visit. Overrun with tourists, it is literally a mound of black volcanic rock with not an ounce of shelter and there are a few average craters as the only sights to see.

we visit this island as part of the caldera's boat sunset tour. the visit is very good in learning the history if santorini, and seeing the active crater which in closer look is still produces smoke and to reach the highest point- the view is just amazing 360 degree. you must take a panoramic view of it. there is an...

The boat trip here is a great day out and you have to pay 2 euros to land. Your guide has a great knowledge of the volcano and it's a nice history lesson as well as a beautiful stroll. You can see the sulphur seeping through the cracks in the rock surface and there are some great photo opportunities here.... More

One does not simply walk around Nea Kameni without a good pair of walking shoes, especially when you joined a sailing tour and only had 2 hours to take photos of the unique landscape of the crater.

I booked a day tour which included the volcano hiking, swimming in the hot spring, lunch at Thirasia and ending with sunset at Oia for 38 euros. A boat took us from the port to the island of Nea Kameni. Thereafter we had to pay 2 euros to enter the place and hike up the volcano. After ten minutes I... More

I can thoroughly recommend Dakoutros Bros for this tour of the volcano. We had pre booked online for the volcano only tour at 15 Euros per person, as we didn't want a full day excursion. We 'checked in' at the Dakoutros Office at Fira Old Port around 11.30 am and swapped our online confirmation for a ticket. We sailed on... More

This is a beautiful place, not only by right of its own views but is important by virtue of giving one the geological concept of what Santorini is all about. Beyond the beaches and beautiful sunsets, Santorini has a volcanic past which has made it what it is today. A visit to Nea Kameni gives one a close look at... More

We booked the 3-hour tour of the hot springs and volcano directly at a travel agency at Thira port (there are many). We turned up about 45-minutes prior to the boat departing at 11am and paid 18 euros each. The boat trip was great and provided amazing views of Santorini. Upon arrival at the volcano, there is an entry fee... More

Remember that you will be walking around on a volcano. This means it will be rocky and hilly and somewhat strenuous. It is a volcano so there are no refreshment stands or the like. Come prepared to take your time and walk the entire area. There are active areas where you will see steam emerging and feel the warmth of... More
