My friends and I we took exclusively last July, the traditional sailing boat PEGASUS for a day cruise around the caldera of Santorini.
First stop the volcano of Nea Kameni. An elementary experience, walking as fas as possible from the masses and main paths across a luna-like landscape, guided by Elfi.
Next stop the island Palaia Kameni offered both Fun and therapy! We were allowed to dive into the refreshing floods of the hot springs, splashing about in the warm fumeroles and digging in the sulphurous mud. After the swim, a local ouzo and Greek snacks were offered by the captain.
After having passed the southern shores of the caldera and Aspronisi, the next stop on our cruise is the island of Thirassia for lunch and swimming. We were touched by the simplicity of archaic life this remote island embodies - the "Old Greece", or what Santorini may have been like fifty or a hundred years ago.
The way back to the Port was like a continuous Highlight - extensive views of the most beautiful and highest caldera cliffs, an impressive finale accompanied by the sounds of the sea and of Greek music. What a fantastic experience!
EVCHARISTO - As Elfi told us in Greek means "Thanks a lot".
