Nea Kameni, Santorini

(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Nea Kameni is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Fira Edition.

  • the Natural geological park of Nea Kameni to visit the crater of the volcano, and which had to pay 2 euros per person to enter. Going up towards the crater, from the top the views are breathtaking to all your around. It is recommended to wear shoes with a good sole thick enough to withstand the heat of the ground well.

  • We did this tour in order to stop in Oia to the sunset the boat ride to the island is nice and quiet walk. It is worth to visit the crater of a volcano.
