Meet with your guide in port of Santorini.In ancient Greece Santorini was known as “Strongili” meaning: round. It was a large and wealthy island. However, about 3,600 years ago, at the height of the Minoan civilization, it was torn apart by a tremendous volcanic eruption. The devastating explosion literally ripped the island to pieces and where land stood, Santorini’s famous caldera was created.

The archeological site of Akrotiri is a 5,000 year old Minoan settlement which has been preserved in ash.  Indeed the town was entirely buried in the great volcanic eruption and remained untouched until it was discovered in 1967. The ruins are very well preserved: streets, buildings, stairs and even second floors of buildings are still visible. Here you can look at Minoan pottery and frescoes, and with a little imagination, feel what it would have been like to live in ancient Greece so many years ago.

After tour we will be back in port of Santorini.

Meet with your guide at port and embark on the traditional boat (caique). 

The first stop is at the islet of Nea Kameni, which is the volcano of Santorini.  There, clients have the opportunity to climb to the crater of the still active, but dormant Volcano, 127 meters above the sea level, which last erupted in 1950.

After 1 ½ hour, the boat leaves the Volcano and heads to the small islet of Palaia Kameni or Hot Springs, as it is better known, which was formed through the centuries by several Volcanic eruptions.  Along the coastline of the isle there are many hot springs, and clients have 30 minutes to swim in the warm yellow-green waters, which are considered to have healing powers.

The next stop is at Thirassia, the second largest island after Santorini in the Caldera.  The island, located opposite of Santorini, is quiet and unaffected by the large numbers of tourist arriving every day.  Here, clients will have 2 hours free time to explore the island, have lunch in one of many small taverns, or swim in the crystal clear waters.

Finally, the boat departs from Thirassia and heads to the traditional port of Ammoudi, from where the clients take the stairs to OIA village (on foot or by donkeys).  In OIA, clients can explore the traditional settlement, wander in the narrow streets, admire the unique architecture, blending large Venetian houses and small cave homes.

Return back to port for embarkation.
