Nea Kameni, Santorini

4.5
#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 .

  • The visit to the island of NEA Kameni become with day trip from the old port of Fira with stopover in Old Burned to dip at Sulphur Springs, and after visiting the active volcano of NEA kameni. The ascent to the crater takes about 20 minutes and is pretty uphill on loose ground under the scorching sun. Need comfortable clothes and water. The crater that by means of the gas to gush gives an impressive picture. The temperature of the soil here is pretty great. To have a full view of the island of Santorini should do this day trip.

  • If you really like to walk on an active volcano then Néa Kaméni is a must do thing in Santorini. Here you can actually feel the warm ground just by digging a little bit and smokes coming from some of the sites. The walking path is easy but slippery, can be tricky for people with mobility difficulties, no shops on this island, a bottle of water will help in summer. In April 2018, the tickets were 20€ for a guided tour including the hot spring from Santorini old port. A fee of 2.5€/person is to be paid in cash upon arrival. You can buy the tickets on any shop selling it on the island and sometimes hotel receptions have them too. The view of main island from Néa Kaméni is wonderful.
  • 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.
  • it has hilling properties due to the sulfur from the volcano.watch out don't swim with bathing suits of light colors,they will become brown.you can fo snorkelling and see the volcanic formations on the ground
  • Must walk up the 🌋 to experience the hot ground volcano feel.. 😊
  • Amazing view with a lot of history.
