Santorini Volcano Tour Highlights

Santorini Volcano Tours

Athinios, the primary ferry port of Santorini, is located about 10 km south of Fira. Most of the cruise to Santorini volcanoes begins at Athinios. The port is surrounded by steep, multi-colored volcanic cliffs, and you can enjoy spectacular views of the calderas from here. You will also find various restaurants, cafes, and mini markets here.

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlights

Caldera

Santorini’s half-moon-shaped bay is located in the center of a caldera in the southern Aegean Sea, which was formed after a volcanic eruption during the Minoan civilization. Located about a thousand feet above the sea level and extending underneath the sea for an additional thousand feet, the caldera is surrounded by steep rocks and cliffs.

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlights

Nea Kameni

Formed around 440 years ago due to volcanic activity. The youngest lavas at Nea Kameni (Young Burnt Island) are less than 50 years old. You will find no soil here, but where the volcanic tephra has formed a thick layer, you will find grass, succulents, and amaranthus. During spring, you will find wildflowers. Don’t miss the single wild fig tree that the locals call "Erinia".

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlights

Palea Kameni

Palea Kameni, less than 2000 years old, is the second youngest volcanic land in Greece, after Nea Kameni. The island's name translates to 'Old Burnt Island'.Unlike in Nea Kameni, here you will find a thin layer of soil in certain areas on which the islanders of Santorini used to grow animal feed. Today, you will find a few goats, wild rabbits and doves here.

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlight

Agios Nikolaos

A light whiff of sulphur will greet you as you reach the shallow waters of Agios Nikolaos’ beach. You will find a layer of pale mud that is rich in sulfur, manganese, iron and other metals. The metals present are believed to be healing, especially for those with skin and physical ailments like rheumatism and arthritis. 

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlight

Thirassia

Considered to be Santorini's "younger sister" as the two islands used to be part of the island of Strongyli. After a volcanic eruption, Strongyli broke into smaller parts. Although located right next to Santorini, Thirassia remains largely untouched by the tourists. Only about 9 sq km in size, Thirassia is  a great place to experience the unique  Cycladic landscape.

Santorini Volcano Tour Highlight

Manolas

Manolas village is the capital of Thirassia. Walk through the village to see the small picturesque houses painted in various colors with big gardens in the front. From Manolas, you can trek to the Monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin. You can also enjoy splendid views of the caldera from here.

A coastal town on the northwestern tip of Santorini, the town is known for its whitewashed houses located on rugged cliff tops that overlook the caldera.
