SANTORINI HIKING TOURS

Santorini Hiking Tours

SANTORINI HIKING TOUR

Take our walking tours visiting the most impressive paths of Santorini. Unarguably, the best way to experience the beauty of the island is on foot!
Hiking routes include the amazing walk from Fira to Oia and take about 4-5 hours.
The trail starts from Fira and follows the rim of the caldera to Oia, the northenest tip of Santorini, passing the historic sights of Firostefani and Imerovigli on the way. The entire adventure will take about 4 hours at a relaxed pace; we will stop many times for photos. The path is pretty well throughout and the hike leads you through villages and caldera edge directly to Oia. We will see the little white washed houses on the edge of the caldera, as endless miles of the Aegean Sea on all sides.
Right outside of the borders of Fira, we start walking a little uphill towards the town of Imerovigli and will enjoy the astonishing views of the famous Skaros rock (if you are feeling adventurous, it is an exciting climb offering some of the finest views). Imerovigli is a small village with some touristic shops and restaurants.
Once away from the main street in Imerovigli, we will encounter the most amazing spots on the whole island. Walking close to the caldera, you will catch yourself staring at houses, hotels, spas and the fascinating nature with an open mouth.
Everything is calm and quiet, the sea reflects the sunbeams just perfectly and you will not believe how lucky you are to be on this unique island.
Soon after passing these beautiful sights of Greek architecture, you will be faced with nature’s astonishing beauty. You will walk past different kinds of ashes that remained since the active volcanic times. But what will take away your breath and make you stop your walk every now and then is the infinite view of the sea.
On the way, we will visit three churches, the chapel Agios Antonios, chapel Agios Marcos and the chapel Profitis Ilias.
After we pass these chapels and churches, a rather difficult part of the path will start. You will find yourself on 1.2m wide path that is rocky and winds downhill. Soon the street will be paved again and you are around 40-60 min away from Oia.
On this final part of the hike, you will pass the church Timios Stavros that is located at 270m above the sea level and then you will be able to spot the city of Oia and reach its borders. We will continue following the path on Oia’s main street with shops and restaurants. From Oia, you will have the perfect view of the famous sunset. This sunset is a one in a lifetime experience.
In summer, the island can become extremely hot, so plan ahead! Take plenty of water, sunscreen and wear appropriate shoes. It is advisable to strike out in the morning when the sun is cooler or in the evening to glimpse the magical Santorini sunsets.
