Based on: Caldera & Oia Sunset Boat Tour, 1 April 2019
This tour is a '2-in-1' and offers a full day of fun cruising to wondrous places such as the lava islands, the still active volcano where you will be able to take a dip in the green sulphuric Hot Springs and a visit toOia to view its magically colourful sunset!
The tour starts by bus to Athinios port where you will board the boat that will cruise to the lava island Nea Kameni. Here you will have the opportunity to ascend the soil path and approach the crater of the still active volcano.
After seeing this fantastic sight, you will cruise to the second lava islet called Palea Kameni where you can find the Hot Springs. Here, the boat will make a stop approximately 50 meters from the Hot Springs opening where you will have an opportunity to swim in the green sulphur waters or simply just sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
The boat then sets sail for the island of Thirasia which used to be part of Santorini until the big explosion of the volcano caused it to split off. There you can spend two hours of free time, either swim at the beach next to the port, have lunch,oreven visit the traditional village Manolas by the winding steps.Then cruise along the caldera cliffs, where you will have the chance to take wonderful photos of the amazing scenary.
The last stop is the breath-taking Oia village. Oia is world famous for being THE place of gathering artists, who are inspired by the beauty of the landscape and the magnificent purple sunsets which showcase the beauty of the landscape and architecture delivering a unique and awe inspiring atmosphere.
