Nea Kameni, Santorini

4.3
#4 of 8 in Nature in Santorini
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. Plan your Nea Kameni visit and explore what else you can see and do in Fira using our Fira day trip planning site.

  • Came here by boat from the main island. This island is formed by a series of eruptions but has been dormant for the past 70 years or so. It is a great spot for a hike to see some craters. The views...  more »
  • It's a beautiful volcanic island with nice views all around. We can still see active holes in the crater emitting hot fumes.  more »
  • It's quite a walk to an active volcano, but worth it. A lot to see, you can take great pictures and explore volcanic island.  more »

  • You can listen Yanni song Santorini Worlds beautiful city Santorini so the surroundings will always be beautiful. Everyone would like to have desire to visit Santorini in his/her life. But around Santorini the places are also unmissable especially the active volcano in the Aegean sea. When you are here then in front of you is splendid view with wind tempers the heat the trip is realy worth.
  • The scenery is better from the water...stay on boat. Why pay to see a hole and roast your arse off. Everyone is miserable..hot..and near dileria after that hike. Lol...my view was better.
  • Came here on a trip. I loved this place! I've never seen anything like it. The ground is dark and the rocks and sand are blackish. It's very hot though. I got sunburnt quite easily. We hiked up form the pier and travelled to the highest point of the island. A good option for a day cruise outside of Santorini.
  • Great place for volcano lovers
  • Came here with a cruise ship (30-euro a ticket 09:30-18:00) and had 2 hours to kill on the volcano. Highly recommend it for hiking enthusiasts. Have good footwear with you, it is doable also with flip flops as you wore these. The ship was pretty loaded, around 100 people.
