4.8
#2 of 19 in Trails in Greece
Hiking Trail Nature / Park
To see the best of what Santorini has to offer relatively quickly, tackle Hiking Trail Fira - Oia. 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.

  • Ballad between Fira and Oia beautiful at any time of the day, we did it between 11 and 12 o'clock, and back between 14 and 15 h, very hot but the landscape largely worth it, stop you take an orange pressed on the way!

  • Not to be missed. We opted for a hike early in the morning departure 5:35 in karterdos walk (South of Fira / 30 minutes of departure). So we took advantage of the sunrise. Arrived at 9:40 in Oia after many stop snack and photos (casual walkers) we took the opportunity to visit Oia a 2nd time but empty this time. Super! Honestly more interesting than the ultra tourist cruise caldera.

  • The route starts at Fira, in the comfort of kiemurelleen on narrow streets along the main street. Reittillä access to your store and to admire, as well as fine hotels in the spectacular scenery. Because of the way the landscape changes so changes to the roads in the proper soraiseen, a cobbled road asfalti/hiekkaiseen. A decent pair of sneakers feet and hat on the head. According to a small meal and plenty of fluids. The route is demanding but fantastic. I would not recommend it to small children or liikuntarajoitteislle.

Where to stay in Fira

The most unique way to experience Fira is to stay in one of its famous cave hotels or cliffside suites. The city in Santorini also has many spas and hotels to accommodate the massive waves of summer tourists on this island, and few are cheap. For more affordable options, venture further away from the cliffside. Or, if you're willing to spend a bit more on lodging, opt for a caldera view. There are a number of homes and villas for rent here as well, just be sure to check with your host about how exactly to get to your lodging, as many places are not accessible by road and require a journey by foot along stone steps.
