Another major proof of the strong volcanic activity still today, Hot Springs have beneficial effects against rheumatisms, arthritis and other diseases.

The tour starts from the Old Port of Fira and from Athinios Port (if you select the transfer option). We will stop for 1.5 hours in the volcano to walk the path to the craters. Our guide will be all the time with and explain the history of the volcano, its effects in the everyday life of inhabitants in Santorini and its current state. Nowadays, as you will see, scientists have installed organs to measure the volcanic indexes, so to warn in case of violent activation.
The, we will sail to the hot springs. Formations of lava and rocks are constantly changing and in a while we can see the older rocks of the nearby island, Palea Kameni. This island proves that the volcano is still active! Sulfur comes out of the sea-bottom and the waters become very warm (temperature reaches 104F / 40oC!). We make a 40-minute stop for swimming.
Later on, our captain will choose the most quiet bay of the Caldera to enjoy our dinner. Varieties of meat, refreshing salads and pasta, local cheese and fruits are our chef’s suggestions! With our sails open, we sail to Oia. The sunset is now in front of us and we will enjoy it with a glass of Santorinian wine…
We return before 22:00, so to admire the night in the Caldera. Oia, Imerovigli and Firostefani at the end reflect their lights in the sea…
