Description

Explore the volcanic islands of the Santorini Archipelago and enjoy an unforgettable sunset in Oia! 

Your bus will take you to Santorini's new port, Athinios, to board a traditional Greek boat and set sail for Nea Kameni. A professional guide will accompany you throughout the day, provide plenty of information, and answer all your questions. 

Nea Kameni is the active part of the volcano and is the origin of the present-day islands of the Santorini archipelago. You can choose to hike to the summit (about 1.5 hours on foot) to get as close as possible to the volcano's crater if you wish. Once you reach the top, you'll be rewarded with superb views of the volcano and the island (an admission fee of €5 per person will be charged on site). 

You'll then get back on the boat and set off towards a new island: Paléa Kaméni. Once there, you can unwind in its hot springs. Relax in the warm turquoise waters and perhaps try out 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 spend as you wish. You can visit the town of Manolas, which is at the top of a walled, 300-step climb! When you reach the top, gaze out at the impressive views of Tharissia and Santorini. You can also choose to dig into lunch at the harbour or in the village, or simply bask in the sun in one of the many small coves along the port.

Your boat will then sail back to Santorini and dock at the port of Athinios. A bus will be waiting to take you to Oia. You'll have free time to explore the village at your leisure and find the best viewpoint from which to admire the breathtaking sunset. 

Finally, at nightfall, it's time to hop aboard the bus that will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
