Nea Kameni, Santorini

(260+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • This trip, I would recommend those capable to tourists, it's a nice hike, but it's really worth it. On the boat it's tranquility, but then only the winding paths to the top. However, it is a reward to you, look into the crater of the volcano, and the views of the other islands, will sulfur and her colored stones. Next stop the ship, the sulphur springs and skillful swimmers can swim, the fact the water was yellow.

  • Visited this place during island tours... nice view from top... nothing much to do... just good for taking pictures...  more »
  • Nice scenic walk through more or less recent craters. You can enjoy a nice alternative view of the caldera. Totally recommended
