Full description
With this hiking tour you get to walk along the rim of the beautiful caldera of Santorini and through the villages of Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli and Oia with plenty of chance to take photos of the breathtaking views. Along the way you pass through beautiful villages with the distinctive white-washed houses, stop at panoramic view points and pass by beautiful churches.

On the way from Fira you hike over the caldera and you pass in front of Skaros, a separate rock, where the first fortress was built on the island. Now you can see only what is left of it. Pass by Firostefani, the monastery of St. Nicholas, and the charming settlement of Imerovigli.Sweeping Mediterranean scenery surrounds you at every angle as you pass by the Prophet Elias chapels, where your group stops for a rest and enjoys a delicious picnic lunch featuring fresh fruit, a sesame bar and a fresh smoothie.

The terrain of the path varies: Some parts are paved sidewalk, some parts are cobblestone, other parts follow just a dirt track. The hike takes around 3 hours depending on walking pace and how many breaks you have.
