The Volcano

row 1
One of Santorini’s most famous attractions is undeniably the volcano, the massive eruption of which in the Late Bronze Age gave the island complex its form. The island had an entirely different shape and size before the volcanic eruptions. Today’s group of islands – Santorini, Therasia, Aspronisi, Nea Kammeni, and Palaia Kammeni – is the outcome of intense volcanic activity over time.

This wild beauty of its landscape is what makes Santorini a unique place on earth, and the traditional villages built on the brink of the caldera cliffs offer a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea and the islets. There are several daily boat tours to both the Kammeni islets, at the heart of the caldera, where you can explore the crater, feel the sulphur in the atmosphere and swim in the therapeutic waters of the hot springs. For those who wish to explore the island’s treasures even more, the one-day boat trip is highly recommended!
