ACTIVE SANTORINI

GENERAL INFO

Immortalized by 20th-century poet Odysseus Elytis as 'the daughter of supreme wrath', Santorini is a collection of five volcanic islands floating on the blue of the Aegean Sea like an incomplete jigsaw puzzle. You probably know what it looks like; photos of vibrant blue waters overlooked by whitewashed stone homes nestled above pristine beaches are constantly fueling wanderlust around the world. Even at first glance, it's clear that Santorini is unlike any other island in Greece, a world famous destination where a sophisticated lifestyle and Greek culture merge with spectacular landscapes.
But, as with many other destinations around the world, Santorini is more than just a pretty face. We created this three-day itinerary as an extension of any of our trips and the aim is to experience Santorini in an adventurous way. In just three days we will explore Santorini through land and sea, immersing ourselves in a fantastic mix of culture, activity and relaxation.

DAILY ITINERARY

Prepare for a breathtaking journey as we hop on a ferry bound for Santorini! Santorini's true beauty unfolds as we approach by sea—picture cruising over the mesmerizing deep blue waters of the caldera, while the towering lava cliffs, adorned in vibrant layers, rise above. Atop these cliffs sit the iconic whitewashed houses, a charming contrast against the volcanic backdrop.
Once settled into our hotel, we'll be transported to Fira, one of the four villages perched on the top of the caldera. Our hiking adventure begins from here, leading us to the charming Oia, often regarded as the most beautiful village not only on the island but in the entire Aegean Sea. The cobblestone trail traces the rim of the Caldera, offering a serene escape from the crowds and providing an opportunity to marvel at the natural forces that have shaped this breathtaking environment.

Ferry: This trip is an extension to our trips coming from Cyclades or Crete. There are daily ferries connecting them with Santorini port. We will adjust the timing of the hike depending on the arrival time.

Today, we'll explore Akrotiri, Santorini's primary archaeological site. Established around the third millennium BCE, this coastal settlement flourished as a prosperous city along the trade route between Europe and the Middle East. Unfortunately, in the late 17th century BCE, a volcanic eruption abruptly ended the town's existence, covering the entire island in ash. Similar to Pompei, these materials have remarkably preserved the buildings and their contents, making Akrotiri one of the Aegean's most significant sites.
The afternoon unfolds on the water with a once-in-a-lifetime cruise. Sailing in the caldera offers a highly rewarding experience, providing a different perspective of the island and revealing a fascinating world of volcanic serenity and unparalleled splendor. During the cruise, you'll have the chance to take a refreshing dip in the therapeutic hot springs next to the volcano, enjoy a delicious barbecue onboard, and soak in the spectacular colors of the world’s famous Santorinean sunset.
