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

The sense of accomplishment after arriving to Oia made this hike worth it. I wanted to stop but couldn't after seeing a girl wearing a dress and flip flops pass me! Pack lots of water and take breaks. My husband and I are very active...More

Best part to enjoy Santorini is hiking from Fira to Oia. It takes us around 4 hours to Oia because the view was amazing and we just can’t stop ourselves to take pictures along the way. It’s really fun because it not a hard hike...More

We chose Santorini specifically for the 6.5-mile hike from Fira to Oia. Most websites say it takes 2.5 hours but it took us just under 4 hours, traveling with people ages 26, 32, and 62. We did stop to take photos along the way, and...More

I hiked this alone in March, had a perfect day for it! Took about 3.5 hours to get to Oia (once i eventually found my way out of Fira...) and it was well worth the trouble. The views were spectacular, and the sense of achievement...More

Spectacular views all along this trail, it is a little hard work in places (although I was in flip-flops) - go left at the top of the biggest hill for an easier descent on the other side

One of the best hikes in Santorini. Beautiful views but be prepared for the hot sun and hydrate. There are certain areas with not much views but well worth the hike. Its a must do.

This hike was a fabulous way to see a lot of Santorini. It brings you through more “rural” areas where you can see wild animals, and also through the main town. We did this on a very hot day in July. We were told by...More

Obviously experiencing the whole trail is amazing but even if that is not possible, do not let that deter you from taking a “partial hike” on the trail. We are not hikers and did not come prepared for/ want the effort required of the full...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
