We enjoy the outdoors, beautiful scenery, hiking and a little science education. This excursion took us around the volcano to see the hot springs, which only the very young and foolish dared to swim to in the late April water of the Adriatic sea, and then to the small port across from Santorini. Once there, we followed our guide (sort... More

The volcano trip is a must do thing while you are in Santorini. You can buy the excursion tour from the hotel reception or get it from the excursion tour office in Fira, the price is vary depend on the option you want. You will board the local caique at the Athinios Port with a short journey around 15 minute... More

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.
