From Kos: Boat Tour to the Volcanic Island of Nisyros

1. From Kos: Boat Tour to the Volcanic Island of Nisyros

Climb aboard at Kos for a boat tour to the fascinating volcanic island of Nisyros. Reach the picturesque harbor of the island after about an hour and discover the traditional way of life and authenticity of the island. The bus takes you up a winding road until you reach the largest accessible volcanic crater in Europe. On the way up you will see a rugged landscape with strange trees and shrubs on one side, while you enjoy the magnificent view of the sea and the surrounding islands on the other. Once at the top admire the view of the active volcano crater – four kilometers in diameter – and look out onto a unique lunar landscape. In the afternoon stroll through the narrow streets of the port of Mandraki, enjoy a traditional lunch in one of the many traditional tavernas or visit the famous monastery. Be enchanted by the magic of the island.

Insanely great tour. What we liked best was visiting the volcano and entering the Stefanos crater. The town of Nisyros is very cute with many small streets and the view of the sea and the surrounding islands is priceless from the castle/monastery. Like Little Santorini. The time of 6 hours is calculated without travel time. So we had to reschedule something. The guide was very nice and gave us important information about the island with humor and competence. We definitely recommend the tour.

The trip to the volcanic island was very nice. The volcano was very impressive and everything was well organized. The guide was very friendly and happy to answer questions. The goat at the Vegos restaurant comes highly recommended. All in all it was a very successful day and I would highly recommend it. :)

The excursion was really well organized and explained by our guide. There is enough time for the volcano, since you can only admire and desire the volcano anyway :) The port city and the little bit on the boat were also very quiet and cute, since we felt like we had the island to ourselves.

Very nice trip! Tip: include the shuttle to Nysios at the same time, then you don't have to pay extra for it on site. Otherwise highly recommended, great island!

Was a nice trip with a great volcano crater and delicious lunch in the old town!
