Volcano – Hot Springs – Thirassia – Sunset In Oia
Day 1: Nea Kameni / Palaia Kameni
The bus picks up clients from the designated pick up points and drives them to Athinios port, in order to embark on the traditional boat (caique).
The first stop is at the islet of NEA KAMENI, which is the VOLCANO of Santorini. There, clients have the opportunity to climb to the crater of the still active, but dormant Volcano, 127 meters above the sea level, which last erupted in 1950.
- Nea Kameni, Santorini, Greece
Day 1: Thirassia
After 1 ½ hour, the boat leaves the Volcano and heads to the small islet of PALAIA KAMENI or HOT SPRINGS, as it is better known, which was formed through the centuries by several Volcanic eruptions. Along the coastline of the isle there are many hot springs, and clients have 30 minutes to swim in the warm yellow-green waters, which are considered to have healing powers.
The next stop is at THIRASSIA, the second largest island after Santorini in the Caldera. The island, located opposite of Santorini, is quiet and unaffected by the large numbers of tourist arriving every day. Here, clients will have 2 hours free time to explore the island, have lunch in one of many small taverns, or swim in the crystal clear waters.
- Therasia, Ia, Greece
Day 1: Oia
Finally, the boat departs from THIRASSIA and heads to the traditional port of Armeni, from where the clients take the stairs to OIA village (on foot or by donkeys). In OIA, clients can explore the traditional settlement, wander in the narrow streets, admire the unique architecture, blending large Venetian houses and small cave homes, and of course watch the world famous sunset.
After the sunset, the buses will be waiting in the parking area to return clients to their hotels.
