GUIDED VOLCANO TOUR
VOLCANO ENTRANCE FEE
After being picked up by our buses, you will reach Athinios port to embark on a traditional wooden boat “kaikki” at 11:30 and start sailing with destination the Volcano.
Your stay there is for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. To walk up to the volcano to meet the active craters is about 20/30 minutes through a walkable path. It is worth to reach the top because when you arrive there, if you scratch the surface you will see steam coming out, smell the sulfur and also take pictures.
After the visit of Nea Kameni, the boat continues to the island of Palaia Kameni where the Hot Springs are located. The boat anchors a few meters outside the small bay of Agios Nikolaos,it lowers down a ladder in the water and from there you can swim a distance of about 30 meters to get to the famous mud baths of Palaia Kameni, which are believed to have beneficial abilities for the skin and other diseases. The water temperature is 30-35 degrees but it constantly mixes with seawater. The boat remains here for about 30 minutes for swimming. It’s quite a time since there is no beach on the small island where you can stay for a while.
In continuation of the tour, the boat sails to the island of Thirassia. You have 2 hours free time to swim in the crystal waters of Korfos or to eat in traditional taverns with different dishes of the island. You can go by foot or by donkeys in the village of Manolas, which is very picturesque with narrow streets and nice view of Santorini and worth a visit. After the 2 hour pleasant break on the island of Thirassia, we start to return back to the old port sailing near the volcanic cliffs of Oia to take pictures of the unique scenery.
The disembarkation is at 17.15 in the picturesque old port of Fira.
