Nea Kameni, Santorini

4.0
#4 of 6 in Nature in Santorini
Island Nature / Park
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.

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.
