Interesting experience…but you have to walk quite a distance and usually is it in the middle of the day when sun is burning so I would recommend sun protection, hat and comfortable shoes
Although the view is amazing as well as swimming in not springs!

Great trip out to the volcano and hot springs. This tour was the perfect length of time. Allowed adequate time to hike the volcano and take in the views, before heading back to the boat to go round to the hot springs. Definitely wear dark coloured swim wear for the hot springs, as light coloured clothing will be dyed. You could either jump in, or climb down the steps into the sea, before swimming over to the hot springs which were lovely and warm.

There were some issues at the port. We arrived on time, but there were others who arrived late and even after leaving the port we returned for them - very kind, but frustrating! Though, overall this didn’t affect our experience.

To do absolutely Go down to the port of Fira on foot (provide sneakers), on the back of a donkey or by cable car. Climb aboard this magnificent wooden boat and set off to discover the volcano. It's really a nice excursion with a very friendly guide (Ulysse) who explains the history of the volcano really well and who is very available for any information. I recommend 100%

I jogged from the boat dock to the top, then around the rim. I had to cross back and forth multiple times before descending back to the boat dock to finish a 5K distance. The ground at the top is active, and has smoke seeping through the rocks. It's warm to the touch but not hot enough to burn your skin or shoes. Very cool if you like that sort of site. Definitely wear comfortable CLOSED TOE shoes! Leave the flip flops behind. The trail to the top isn't difficult, but it's not completely smooth.

The views from this volcano are stunning. The walk up isn’t very long, but we found it quite difficult as we aren’t used to heat. The inactive crater isn’t very far from the bottom though, so if you struggle with mobility you can walk to this and sit down under covered seating as opposed to going the whole way up. The walk is also relatively safe and suitable for accompanied children. You’re given an explanatory leaflet as you enter the site which gives a great context as to the history of the volcano even if you aren’t with a guide. It’s only a short 10 minute boat ride from the Port of Thira. We really enjoyed our trip!

Amazing views of the volcano from a lot of places on Santorini. Interesting the some people feel this was once ancient Atlantis, and that this volcano destroyed the entire civilization.

We visited this volcano as part of a half day boat trip, I’d certainly recommend it. The volcano is dormant now after 70 years since its last activity. But the history is a bettering if you get a good guide and they tell you all about it. Bring water, and wear proper trainers. You can do in sandals but I wouldn’t advise it. There are steps initially, then it gets gravelling and steep. There are multiple rest stops, some shaded some not. It’s about 1km to the top point, up hill about 20 mins. The views are astonishing and you certainly get some more bettering pictures but do bring water depending on when you visit it’s toasty up there, with no water stops, toilets etc. The entrance fee is €2.50 cash only there are some guides in various languages.

I had an excursion on the volcano island. It has been really a long long walk under the sun. The view is great and also the place worth it but be ready to walk a lot and bring water with you.
