Santorini stands as a global travel icon, renowned for its unique natural landscape sculpted by volcanic activity, iconic architecture featuring cave dwellings, and exquisite gastronomy highlighting the island’s finest produce.

Embark on activities that epitomize the essence of Santorini when you journey to this Cycladic gem.

Visit the Volcanoes:

Departing from Athinios Port and Ammoudi Bay under Fira, boat excursions to the volcanoes are readily available, offering frequent schedules.

Caldera Cruises:

The quintessential experience of navigating the caldera offers a myriad of options, from catamarans, speedboats, and yachts to wooden sailboats with captains and crews. You’ll explore Nea and Palea Kameni, swim in the therapeutic hot springs of Palea Kameni, marvel at the cliffside hues, dock for a stroll in Thirassia, and witness sunset under Oia.

For a more luxurious voyage, private charters offer onboard dining with chefs, massages, guided dives, and even event services such as parties, receptions, and proposals at sea.

At Vlychada Marina on the east coast, boat rentals are available, as well as at agencies across the caldera villages.

Indulge in Wine & Tasting Tours:

For years, specialized companies have collaborated with wineries to organize wine tours, offering group or private visits to wineries and vineyards, wine tasting, and oenology sessions. Tailored packages for newlyweds are also available, along with organized tours to the island’s attractions and archaeological sites.
