I have been to several places that felt like they were not on earth - like the white desert in Egypt or the Uyuni desert in Bolivia. I would say that Nea Kameni (means the "New Burnt") qualifies as one of those places. Dark, almost black volcanic rocks everywhere, and, behind them, Thirasia and Santorini. Spectacular!

We booked this tour for 38 Euros, which included the hot springs and transportation from the Old Port. It was Santo Star Travel who conducted the tour. It is on a traditional wooden boat, ours was called the Albatross. It's 2 Euros admission to Nea Kameni volcano to keep the geological research going. There's so many different colours to the...

The black octopus looking island to the north east of Santorini is this island created by 5 volcanic underwater eruptions over last 2000 years. The way to get there was by a 3 hour round boat trip. The journey was as good as the destination- blue waters, white houses on the cliffs which turned golden on the return journey with... More

We booked a boat trip to Nea Kameni from the Old Port of Fira after walking down the 587 Karavolades stairs. We weren't really expecting much and the weather wasn't the best - spitting rain & overcast. The boat tour included the hot springs followed by the volcano tour. Once we reached the volcano, it was a 2 euro entry... More

We, I and my wife, as part of a tour group of 25, visited, on 24-Sept-2015, the lava islet of Nea Kameni by 'caldera' boat from the Greek island of Santorini in the Aegean sea. We had to negotiate a steep climb on a rocky path - 'huffing & puffing' all the way and enroute we saw 4-volcano craters -... More

This is a small Island in the bay off the coast of Thira in what must have been the middle of the volcanic crater many years ago, although as its still active maybe the many years ago bit might change.Interesting boat trip to get there and afterwards was a good way to see the island and its setting in the...

We took a tour on a traditional 3 masted fishing vessel. There are lots of these. The tour included a guided trek up the volcano, a swim in the "hot" springs, and lunch stop on Thirassia. The trek up the volcano was interesting, but a very hot, hard climb. The guide said it was 1km. But it seemed longer. She... More

It's a hot, active volcano that you need to hike up....we loved it. We had a very informative guide which makes a great difference. The views alone are worth the effort. Combine the hike with a trip to the hot spring for a swim and this is a great trip.

Not worth the LONG, hot hike. The amount of smoke you see is equivalent to an ash tray. It is very anti-climatic to spend a long time walking up an un-kept, rocky mountain to see practically nothing.
