Hiking Trail Fira - Oia, Santorini

4.8
#1 of 7 in Trails in South Aegean
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.

Where to stay in Imerovigli

A short bus ride away from Fira you'll find the boutique hotels and spas of Imerovigli, boasting caldera views on the island of Santorini. This small medieval village has become a booming tourist destination complete with a number of hotels, suites, villas, and other luxury resorts. As with the rest of the island, there aren't many options for budget travelers in this village, especially if you're looking for cliffside spots overlooking the sea. To experience the majesty of this village without the high prices, consider apartment rentals or more basic hotel options in the area.
