Blue-domed chapels stand on hilltops; houses are simple white cubes, sunsets flamboyant orange. The half-moon island, with its rearing cliffs and dramatic outlooks, is all that remains of a huge volcanic explosion. Inland, fertile soils provide a softer landscape of silvery olive trees, fields of tomatoes and neatly pegged vineyards that produce sweet amber-colored wine.

SANTORINI CALDERA CRUISE, 6 HOUR
11:30 - 17:30
11:30 - 17:30
At first, our boat stops on the little dock of the famous Volcano, where we will walk towards the top of the island. While walking, our experienced guide talks about the intense volcanic activity of the last 3000 years! The crater still seems active, as hot fumes are released in many points! Next, we are heading to the Hot Springs, where we will make a 50-minute stop for swimming in the suplhur springs of the volcano. Another major proof of the strong volcanic activity still today, Hot Springs have beneficial effects against rheumatisms, arthritis and other diseases. The island of Thirasia is our final destination, where we will stay 2 hours for swimming and lunch. Thirasia is a small, very picturesque island, ideal choice for nice walks, swimming and lunch in the little port of Korfos or in the traditional village Manolas. On the way back, the boat stops just for a few minutes in the port of Armeni in Oia. If you wish, you can leave the group here and visit the village of Oia , famous for its breathtaking sunset. The red stones of lava along with caves, numerous churches and multi-coloured houses are the ultimate challenge for every single photographer... In the night you can return to your hotel by the public transportation or by taxi. In case you continue your trip to the Old Port of Fira or to the Athinios Port, you will have a great way back, as the boat sails very close to the coast of the Caldera!
SEE SANTORINI IN A DAYAt first, the bus takes us to the highest point of Santorini, the mountain of Profitis Ilias , from where we can see a panoramic view of the island. We continue to the village of Pyrgos, to see the old castle; in the 18th century, that castle was the capital of Santorini and its dense architecture was offering great protections from the pirates invasions.

SANTORINI SUNSET CRUISE

15:00 - After sunset
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…
