Back in 1450 BC, a volcanic eruption caused the middle of Santorini to fall into the sea. It left a steep crater known as a caldera reaches up to 1300 m height. On the top of the Caldera the famous villages of Fira and Oia are perched where one can admire the famous Santorini sunsets, depicted on each holiday postcard. The island is more than a volcanic island – it is a fairy tale in Blue and White. Santorini will enchant you not only with its sunsets but with its white houses, blue domed churches, black beaches.
Some of the activities we recommend are yacht cruise to the nearby 3 islets Nea Kammeni, Palea Kammeni and Thirassia, giving opportunity to see the volcano and its all wonders. Fascinating in terms of their rock formations and colour, visitors are also able to swim in their hot springs. Some 5 degrees Celsius warmer than the surrounding sea temperature, these natural mud baths also have therapeutic properties due to their high levels of sulphur, a by effect of the volcano.
You should definitely visit some of the island’s numerous vineyards, including Santo Wines, Argiros Estate, Roussos Winery and Boutari Winery or try scuba diving and snorkeling.
