You should be ready to walk under the sun to a hot black stony path. The view from the top is fantastic. You will see (and smell) sulphurous gases coming out of the crater (no danger). A boat will travel you there from Fira old port (half an hour trip) and you have one and and half hour to walk... More

the trip to the volcano is must in santorini. The boat stop outside the sea and if you know swimming you can go to the island and swim to the orange waters (due to iron from and oxides from the volcano). Really warm waters their, you will feel the difference

Strange landscape,the island look like after a assiduous bombing . Barren rock,in some parts tufts of dry grass, a lot of dust, very hot... you feel like you're walking into a dump. The only thing that reminds about the volcano is the 2-3 fumaroles and the sulfur smell To hike on the volcano you have to pay 2.5 euros.The views... More

You hike a lot (or so it seems too me) to go up to the highest point of the vulcano. This could be very stressful if you book during 12-14.30 o clock. Its quite a hike at that time of the day in summer. Please consider wearing appropriate hiking shoes or trainers as it is very rocky and dusty. Theres... More

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
