Nea Kameni, Santorini

4.3
#4 of 8 in Nature in Santorini
Travel to the small volcanic island of Nea Kameni and climb to the top of the crater. Once at the peak, hike completely around the rim and enjoy stunning ocean views. Don't be surprised to see smoke still rising from this active volcano, which last erupted in 1950. Remember to wear sun protection, as the landscape is almost completely barren and offers little shade. Also wear comfortable hiking shoes that do well on slippery rock. Plan your Nea Kameni visit and explore what else you can see and do in Santorini using our Santorini day trip planning site .

  • With the tour operator Kamari Tours we made the excursion 4 (volcano and hot springs), 32 euros per person. After taking us by bus to the small marina, we boarded the boat in the direction of hot springs. The boat leaves you 50 meters from the coast: as soon as you dive you are in deep and cold water then swim to the hot springs. Experience to try, lasted about 30 minutes. Then we start in the direction of volcano, where you pay 2.50 euros for the entrance. We recommend water cap and sneakers (no sandals and flip-flops), you walk for about an hour and a half in the sun. Very interesting, the landscape looks like that of an apocalyptic film: only stones and if you are lucky a little smoke from the crater. It includes driving in English.

  • Nea Kameni volcano tour - hot springs booked at a good price 20 euros per person. Very interesting the walking tour of the volcano for the traced paths you can admire the volcanic landscape enjoying a breathtaking view of all Santorini among the vastness of the volcanic rocks. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes as you walk quite a lot between rocks and rocky debris. TO SEE!

  • You can listen Yanni song Santorini Worlds beautiful city Santorini so the surroundings will always be beautiful. Everyone would like to have desire to visit Santorini in his/her life. But around Santorini the places are also unmissable especially the active volcano in the Aegean sea. When you are here then in front of you is splendid view with wind tempers the heat the trip is realy worth.
  • The scenery is better from the water...stay on boat. Why pay to see a hole and roast your arse off. Everyone is miserable..hot..and near dileria after that hike. Lol...my view was better.
