May the best attraction in the island. Actually the whole island is an active volcano. You have the opportunity to pay a close visit. Try getting up a bit early, in order to avoid the majority of tourists coming by buses. 2 euros entrance totally worth it. Do not visit wearing your slippers, as it may be hot. Carry some... More

We arrived by boat to the harbour of Pali and hired a car for the day. The visit to the craters and volcanoes was most interesting and the brochures were printed in English, not always the case in Greece, so we actually knew what we were looking at. The cafe had everything you could need plus a lot of information... More

Wow!! Now i can say that i've been inside an active volcano. We booked this trip from a tour kiosk in Kardemena and we really weren't disappointed. The boat trip over take around an hour if i remember correctly and it was lovely to see the neighbouring islands. Getting to Nisyros we then had to pay a 2 euro fee... More

At the small harbour of Nisyros you can have a good cappuccino or Greek coffee at Ellinis or a good lunch. The owner is Australian and can advise you what to order as to not always eat Gyros and dolma. The restaurant Salinikios offers very good local food and the staff is also very friendly. You can rent scooters at... More

A boat trip to Nisyros with company Sail Away was perfect! It was much cheaper than via our travel agency and we really like all the attractions it offered such as monastery, volcano and walking around the town. A true Greek atmosphere could be breathed in there.

An hour each way on the boat, some walking through the town, a visit to the small monastery, and something to eat, before the coach journey to the volcano. The guide, Costas, was brilliant. Very knowledgabe and kept us interested. A long day, but worth it.

Even though it is a bit ‘touristy’ it is still a day not to be missed if visiting Kos. It is easy to book in Kardamena, all the operators appear so stick to standard pricing, and the process from ferry crossing, volcano visit and return journey is straightforward and without hassle. Our trip included a visit to the village of... More

Nisyros is a quiet paradise. When many island resorts are being over run by tourists, traffic and commerce, Nisyros remains as an unspoiled haven of peace and tranquility. Nisyros possesses the clear water beauty of the Aegean sea coupled with a small village atmosphere. There are no busy intersections only small coastal and mountain roads.
