From Kos: Nisyros Island Volcano and Panagia Spiliani

1. From Kos: Nisyros Island Volcano and Panagia Spiliani

Depart from the port of Kardamena in Kos and take a 1-hour cruise to the volcanic island of Nisyros. Upon arrival, transfer to a waiting bus that’ll take you on a short drive to the volcano. Listen to an informative guide along the way. Get information about the volcano and the history of the island. Then, feel the force of the lava rumbling deep beneath your feet as you enter the volcanic crater. See the bubbling mud pools and steam geysers, and imagine that you have landed on the moon. Return to the port and get the chance to wander around the town of Mandraki. After a short walk through the narrow streets of blue and white painted houses, visit the monastery of Panagia Spiliani, considered one of the most beautiful monasteries of the Greek Islands. Make your way back to town for some free time for lunch (own expense) or do some shopping before boarding the boat back to Kos at 4:00 PM.

It was a moment to saver. Tour was good and visited volcano site and villages. Tour guide was good and gave us and insight what the island is about. It was fiscinating to learn about village life. Important lesson for me is about churches everywhere. I think Greek people have got God with them given nature of country

We did the tour for two. Mother and daughter (37/11). We both liked it very much. The times of stay were great. The tour guide very nice. We have seen and experienced a lot. Would we repeat.

It was all very good! A little more free time on Nisyros would have been nice, but we saw a lot and had fun
