We went on an excursion trip on a schooner, which took us over to the volcanic island. The tour guide (Ingmar) was exceptionally knowledgeable and lhis pidgeon english was entertaining. 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

I'm glad I saw the volcano. Its landscapes are out of this world. It was a good hike, a bit on the hot side, but offered a lot of stunning photo ops.

Excursion with Thomson. The guide Kim was absolutely brilliant. Boat trip to the volcano where you walk to the top, relaxing trip to the hot springs where you can swim if you wish, then a relaxing sail back to the port. Half day.

We took the sailing trip to the volcano. The entrance was only 2 euro. The hike was not so hard, compared to other volcano I've been. And once you reach the top, there will be a lot of people taking pictures. However, it's a nice spot to look back to Santorini and see the island from afar. The sea looked... More

We booked this excursion through our cruise ship and was glad we did the morning excursion. It's HOT on those black rocks. The walk/hike was an easy to medium walk uphill. I would recommend wearing closed toe shoes because of the all the small rocks that can get stuck in your shoes. There were some people who did have sandals... More

Purchase the ticket from our hotel for 15 euro. We need to get to the old port of Fira on our own. From Fira, one can choose to walk down the steep steps or take a cable car down which costs 5 euros for one way, I suggest walk down and take the cable car up. At the port, there... More
