30 min after the sunset
At first, the bus takes us to the highest point of Santorini, the mountain of Profitis Ilias , from where we can see a panoramic view of the island. We continue to the village of Pyrgos, to see the old castle; in the 18th century, that castle was the capital of Santorini and its dense architecture was offering great protections from the pirates invasions.
The bus takes us to Athinios Port to board on a beautiful traditional wooden boat. We stop on the little dock of the famous Volcano, where we will walk towards the top of the island. While walking, our experienced guide talks about the intense volcanic activity of the last 3000 years! The crater still seems active, as hot fumes are released in many points!
Next, we are heading to the Hot Springs, where we will make a 50-minute stop for swimming in the suplhur springs of the volcano. Another major proof of the strong volcanic activity still today, Hot Springs have beneficial effects against rheumatisms, arthritis and other diseases.
The island of Thirasia is our final destination, where we will stay 2 hours for swimming and lunch. Thirasia is a small, very picturesque island, ideal choice for nice walks, swimming and lunch in the little port of Korfos or in the traditional village Manolas.
The last stop is in Oia, where you can walk in the village, enjoy the view of the Caldera and see the brilliant sunset…
