Explore the volcanic islands of the Santorini archipelago on a traditional boat cruise!

You'll be taken by bus to Santorini's new port, Athinios, to board a traditional Greek boat and set off to Nea Kameni. A professional guide will accompany you throughout the day and provide commentary and answer your questions. 
Nea Kameni is the active part of the volcano which gave rise to the islands you'll find today on the Santorini archipelago. You'll go on a 1.5 hour climb to get as close as possible to the volcano's crater. Once at the top, you'll get amazing views of the volcano and the island. 

You'll then go back to the boat and head off to discover a new island: Paléa Kaméni. Once there, you can unwind in its hot springs. Relax in the turquoise hot springs and or enjoy a lazy mud bath. 

The tour will then continue to the traditional island of Tharissia, where you'll have 1.5 hours of free time to do as you wish. You can visit the town of Manolas, which is at the top of a walled, 300-step climb! Once at the top, you can admire the impressive view of Tharissia and Santorini. 

Your boat will then head back to Santorini, making a short stop at the port of Oia before returning to Athinios. A bus will take you back to your hotel.
