Best views of Santorini and all the surrounding islands at the top, which is a quick easy climb. Active steam vents and geological recording equipment bring home the significance of the area. Biggest down side was how crowded it was despite the isolation. Boat after boat from cruise ships crowd in there all morning and midday. Wear closed toe shoes... More

If you've been to Santorini more then once and are looking for something different to do, an option is to take a boat and visit the other two islands formed when the volcano erupted. To do this we needed to take a small boat from the tender pier. There was plenty of wine, beer, soft drinks and mezes on board... More

The volcano was a really interesting site and as you climb it you also get great views of Santorini. It is a climb to the peak and depending on the time of year can be hot, so you need to be somewhat fit to make the trek, and you need to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. The tour guide we...

Many trips available to visit here, hot-springs & thirasia, nice little boat trip around the bay to visit these islands, bit of a trek up hill-side but worth seing, views up top are to die for, also see still creating steam from underground, still active, then visit hot-springs on next island. must do ok.

At almost 73 I thought I would not make the almost mile climb up to the top of the Volcano in the caldera of Thira, Santorini. But what a reward! The view was fantastic! I was winded and very tired, but it was definitely worth it. We got there on a boat that I will review elsewhere. Great trip, fun... More

Picked up at Fira new port by a beautiful wooden boat along with maybe 100 others. Firstly a trip to Nea Kameni, the active part of the volcano that is Santorini. Once dropped off at the pier , a guide from the ship takes you up to the top of the volcano, about a 25 min walk up some quite... More

Whilst most boats take you to the hot springs on the other island, we were taking to the springs on Nea Kameni. There were only 5 people there including us two. It was quite a long swim as you head of your boat toeards and then down the inlet losing complete site of your boat eventually. The water went from... More

Mountain climbing fanatics would surely love this place. This is an active volcano seated right at the middle of the Caldera bay which is still believed to be active according to scientists due to the sulfur emissions you will find in one of its craters. For a measly 2.50 euros you would have the opportunity to climb up this island... More

A lot of boat tours every day visit the volcano. Walk to the top and take with you a volcanic rock as souvenir.

This volcano is an active volcano situated on a nearby island. It is accessible by the countless number of ferries on the port. Make sure you take your tickets for the volcano and hot spring tour in santorini itself and if possible a day prior. Either you can take the cable car down to the port (Santorini is on the... More
