Full description
Your first stop on this tour will be the lava island Nea Kameni, where you'll have the opportunity to walk up the soil path and approach the crater of the still active volcano. Then, return to the boat which will take you to the second lava island, Palea Kameni, where you'll find the amazing hot springs - the boat will make a stop about 50 meters from the opening, so you can swim in the green sulfur waters of the hot springs, wet your feet, or just enjoy the view! After the hot springs, the tour continues to Thirassia Island, which was once part of the island of Santorini before the volcano's explosion. Spend two hours on this amazing island and do some swimming, hang out on the beach, have lunch next to the sea, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. On the way back to Athinios port where the tour ends, you'll cruise on the King Thiras yacht under Oia where the best pictures can be taken of the amazing cliffs and breathtaking scenery. Once you arrive at the port, the bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Punctual pickup, great ship, nice hike up the volcano (doable, sturdy shoes recommended). Very good explanation at the top, great views of Santorini and surrounding islands. Then swim from the boat into the sea in the direction of the small confluence, the water is getting warmer and warmer! Last stop at Thirasia port, small restaurants to eat! We didn't hike up because it was raining! Drive back along Santorini with great views!

Great trip to the volcano with interesting explanations. Unfortunately, there was stress at the hot springs, which left very little time there. Not suitable for bad swimmers. Boat was unfortunately also very crowded, but predictable at the price. Extra guide for French was annoying. 2.5 hours on the island of Thirasia are unnecessary if you don't want to go up the steep path.

We were on santorini 3 days and this excursion is great, indeed the day is amortized Volcano, hot spring, thirasia It is to be done. Wooden boat and pleasant staff. However, nothing in French. A short written guide would be welcome. And a bit of a mess to take the bus, because the meeting point is that of many organizers
