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.

Beautiful day, perfect for discovering the volcano and the caldera. The sulfur springs are beautiful: get ready to swim (the boat must stop at at least 50 meters). Light costumes are not recommended, considering that sulfur stains irremediably! I recommend the day without sunset included: the visit ends at 16: 30/17 and the summer sun sets after 20. The day is already full and "tiring" without adding 3 hours of travel and walking in Oia. Our guide Vasso was good, very nice and thorough!

Very well organized trip. The bus took us to the port (transfer). Nea kameni and therassia islands very well. A little over for the hot spring because contrary to some comments no fries were offered for bad swimmers. We had the courage to climb to the top of Therassia Island and we were disappointed with the view (not valid). At the end of the excursion the boat sets sail again towards oia and fira and it was very interesting to see where we had done the hike the day before. We are delighted with this visit and we recommend it.

It was a worthwhile tour with transportation included. I enjoyed a variety of activities such as trekking in the volcano, hot springs (mostly swimming in the sea), and lunch on Thirassia Island. The minus point was that there were too many people on the boat and there was a problem with the transfer, so I had to wait for a long time.
