To see the best of what Santorini has to offer relatively quickly, tackle Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail. Hundreds of people hike the 9 km (5.5 mi) long trail every day, stopping along the way to discover the island's picturesque beaches, small villages, and ancient churches. The scenic trail covers a variety of terrains, including some rocky and steep pathways for which you should bring a pair of comfortable hiking shoes. The best time to start the hike is just after sunrise or late in the afternoon, during the coolest parts of the day. Wear a wide-brimmed hat, and bring lots of drinking water and a light snack.

  • The hike was more challenging than expected. Rough terrain in some areas, loose rocks on portions of the downhill, and long exposure to sun on for most of the roughest part. It felt 10 to 15 degrees.....  more

  • It is so hot and crowded along this trail - we barely made it! Had to keep stopping to buy water but it was cool to see all the different towns and views of the caldera.

  • It took us about 3.5 hours to hike from Fira to Oia. Go early because it gets hot and there is no shade the entire walk. Bring plenty of water. Recommend going in the direction of Fira to Oia as...

  • Very nice hike but you have to be extremely careful. Luckily there are many points to stop and rest, but some parts feel too close to the cliff to comfort. I guess it also depends on how comfortable you are with heights
  • It was a beautiful hike going to the rock. A bit breezy and cold but hubby and I likes it that way
  • Nice view from this trail. Lots of stairs though! It’s beautiful to see Santorini from the opposite!
  • Skaros - must see! You have to see castle fortress from medieval times. The monument constructed there offered protection from pirates. The rock is a formation and collection of ruins on the Greek island of Santorini.
  • Nice landscape, if u like hiking and it do not take long time to access there from Imerovigli. If lucky, u can also see some donkeies who are working along the path.
