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.

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

We really enjoyed this tour, and it was a good value for the price. The places we visited were wonderful and enjoyable. The guide did an amazing job and gave a thorough lecture about the history and geology of the volcano, and she was kind and responsive to all the guests. We do wish that we'd had more time to swim at the hot springs, and could have used a little more time to get up and down the volcano, as some of the members of our group are a bit older. But overall we really enjoyed this trip!

Superb activity with a great guide, very well organized, not too much waiting. Lots of people on the boat but normal considering the price. Allow 5 € entry to the volcano per person. For the island of Thirassia, go straight up the stairs to the top (it's hard but worth it) and have lunch at the Panorama restaurant with a sublime view. Special mention for swimming in warm waters!
