This is the most obvious hike you can make on the island of Santorini and it will lead you - if you have not discovered them by now - through the sister villages of Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli, going higher up all the time above the caldera. It...more

We had the opportunity to go to Oia when we were in Santorini during a cruise. The hiking trail is the most amazing way to see spectacular views. I felt a need to wear good runners, certainly not flip flops, heals etc. Oia is one...More

Contrary to some reviews -- I strongly recommend at least sturdy tennis or running shoes for this hi as much of it is on gravel made of dry dusty pumice that is unstable and slippery in parts. I also disagree that a 7 year old...More

We got the bus to oia and walked back. It took a while as the views are stunning and you can’t help stopping to admire them and take photos. It was a hot day and there are a few hills but worth it. It’s actually...More

This was very worthwhile and a great way to see the cliff-west side of the island. When you get close to Oia, it's easier to see that the islands in the center of the water on the west side are in the center of the...More

It is the best walk one can do in Santorin, it's wonderful, easy, just make sure that the sky is blue when you choose your day, it is really worth it.

Views of the caldera as you walk make it a good alternative to the bus from Oia to Imerovigli and Fira. Fira is usually quite crowded with tourists, but it's a shopper's heaven otherwise.

From the middle of Oia, it will be hard to find the trail (atleast it was for us) because it does not start from the paved walkway. Your best bet is to walk along whatever path [some on the street, not on the sidewalk] to... More

Donkey back Hiking Trail Fira - Oia (18 Replies)
I will briefly be in Santorini and would like to do Hiking Trail Fira - Oia and am wondering if I could do it on donkey back and how much it would cost?

Response fromKennydon|
Please DO NOT ride the donkeys on Santorini. They are appallingly treated. Anyone doing so is guilty of condoning animal abuse.
