Hiking Trail Fira - Oia, Santorini
(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I find the walk from Fira to Skaros to be the best portion. The rest of the hike has uneven and sometime slippery terrain and is best conducted with hiking shoes. It also took more than the suggested ...  more »
  • Visit the island of Santorini, the capital Fira and Oia village is one of the most wonderful experiences. The panoramic view from any high point of the island is indescribable! The winding alleyways of Oia, their beautiful houses set into the Hill, its Cathedral, its blue domes and Golden, and the wide stairs to go down to the port, where one meets to asses that to those who do not wish to walk, is a unique and wonderful experience!

  • This hike was amazing. 360 views of the water and mountains plus the towns. This hike is very long so don't try unless you are in good health.
