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

However as we arrived on this island at 12noon, and as there is no shelter we were unable to make the complete hike to the submit, and having found the... More

Take a boat excursion that goes to both Nea and Palea Kameni! It's something very touristic to do but I was really interested in seeing the volcano and walking all the way up to the crater. Make yourself a favor and be prepared, pack comfortable pants and shoes! Don't forget sunscreen and water!

Really good experience to climb/ hike the volcano. It cost you 2 euros to enter it, and It takes you 1 hour to go to the top and take some pictures of the landscape around. It's definitely something to do when you are staying in santorini. Be prepared with really good shoes and sun lotion as it's very hot under... More

Nea Kameni Volcano is a very nice place to workout and have one of the best views from all the Island of Santorini... You can have views of the Village of Oia, Fira and the port of Athenios. Make sure you have a nice walking and closed toe shoes because is a very rocky path.

Fantastic to see a volcano so close up. There were 4 or 5 craters but just one of them with some activity. Not much but enough to understand what powers still was underneath your feet. The last eruption was back in 1950. There were censores placed around the craters, monitoring activity. If it starts the scientists will know it days... More
