Great experience walking around such a geological phenomenon. We used Caldera boats booked through hotel. Boat was clean and felt very safe, toilet and snack bar onboard. We went on a day weather was due to be cooler, mixture of sun and cloud with decent breeze. My wife is 15 weeks pregnant and my daughter is 2.5 years old. Both... More

We travelled here on a boat trip however we didn't realise how much of a hike you had with a guide (or you can go round on your own as long as your back in time for the boat leaving). It was rather uncomfortable with the heat and the uphill walk at first but once the breeze came around and... More

We took the boat tour in March so not crowded and easily arranged. The captain was moderately friendly although he didn't say a word during the excursion. Would have been nice to hear some history or interesting facts along the way. Quick 10 min trip across to the volcano. Not much to see there - but still kind of cool.... More

Seeing the original volcano's remnants is remarkable. Swimming in its hot springs is the only thing better :-)

We were able to see this from a distance but what we saw was beautiful. to think that the island of Santorini was borne out of a volcanic eruption is amazing.

I think that a visit to the crater is a MUST. It is located in the middle of the caldera, and looks like a small island. The crater can only be visited with a guide, it can be pretty dangerous to walk alone in sulphurous areas! Guided boat trips to the crater are scheduled from Fira daily. The crater has... More

Went to walk around and it was definitely beautiful. You can see 2 colour shades of the sea from that volcano.

Photography lovers will have a test of their skills here or you could just take in the fresh air and sight of the beautiful view and sunset/rise. Walking along the hike trails are at leisure and comfortable. There are many hotels pathways along the way and it is easy to walk along from end to end.
