We took a boat from Fira port to the volcano, first we hiked up the volcano which took around 40 minutes. It was really interesting to see the views of Santorini from the volcano and to see the volcano monitors as we climbed to the peak. The weather was great and it was interesting to smell the sulphur of the... More

Short distance from Santorini- you take a boat from Fira port. There's an active volcano which they take you to and you climb it to the crater. Its about 40 minutes of climbing both ways together. From the crater top, you can also get a panoramic view of the Aegean with all the islands, including Santorini. Its beautiful. Once you... More

This was something very different from just relaxing at one of the many beaches in Santorini. We took one of the full day tour to the volcano with other sites. If you tight on time, there is also the half day volcano tour. There is two parts of this island - The volcano where you need to hike to see... More

Accessible by boat this 130 metre uninhabited volcanic island is of interest to those who wish to climb 130 metres to the top of the crater

Booked to go on this boat trip as it actually stops at Nea Kameni and you can walk up to the top of the volcano. When you arrive you have to pay 2.5 Euro as admission which is not included as part of the boat trip. The walk to the top is a reasonable walk but not too much of... More

It was a nice trek to the volcanic island. This island can be reached by ferry from Fira. A cable car runs from Fira to the ferry jetty. A guide takes you to the inactive and active crators on the island. The active one was smoking slightly giving a putrid smell.

Its active volcano. Once you reach, you have to pay 2.5€ to enter the place. There will be a tour guide who will explain the details about this active volcano. And they have few point to go up. If you have good stamina you can continue till the peak. wear proper shoes as the road are rocky.

Very interesting to know that the whole Santorini is a volcano itself. It was a good hike during summer. Weather is perfect during that time and our tour guide was very informative. Will definitely recommend.

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!
