Full description
You will get transfered from your hotel to the starting point of the hike, near the church of the Dormition of Holy Mary, located outside the traditional village of Akrotiri at the Southwest part of Santorini. The trail, offering incomparable views to both sides of the island – in and out of the formation of the caldera - also passes through old vineyards and deserted chapels that give you the feeling that you are walking through the past of Thira. After arriving on the beach of Mesa Pigadia, you go swimming as the beach transfer arranged for you, leads you to a traditional local chef who is willing to reveal all the good, hidden treasures of Greek cooking. After taking the lesson and preparing all the lovely dishes, you enjoy your homemade meal before being transferred back to your hotel.

    Had an amazing time on this excursion with Stratos! We started with an easy 1 hour hike across Akrotiri, where Stratos taught us a lot of history of the village and island. We stopped at Black Sand Beach for about an hour to relax before the cooking class, which was so much fun and much more authentic than any other experience in Santorini, where tourist experiences are less about the authentic Greek life. The lunch was delicious and overall would highly recommend!

    A great experience for all, the hike wasn’t hard at all but very enjoyable, even tho the sea was a bit rough the swim was lovely and the cooking (which I was a bit apprehensive about) was great fun, very basic yet delicious recopies. A big thank you to our two guides for being so welcoming and for sharing their knowledge. Highly recommend it.

    Die Abholung war gut und unkompliziert. Der Locel-Guide war ein sympathischer netter Mann, mit umfangreichen Wissen zur Insel und der grichischen Kultur. Zudem hatte er einen humorvollen Charakter. Der Kochkurs war simpel, dennoch sehr gut und lustig und durch die Köchin wurde man in das trationelle Essen/Kochen förmlich hineingezogen. Und natürlich durfte man das essen, welches man vorher zubereitet hat, am Ende selber essen, was natürlich sehr lecker war.
