While in Santorini, hike up some of Greece's large, active volcanos as you explore craters, springs and the breathtaking views from above.
Our guide was excellent and extremely informative. Wear good comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty for this excursion. Also make sure to take a water that they offer for the hike. It is quite a bit of exercise getting to the top. The swim in the hot springs was really neat, but kind of a let down as the water was not all that hot and the seas were very cold at that time. Our guide did give us some great advice about Fira though and we found the Sphinx restaurant as a result. Excellent food, decent price, and an absolutely breathtaking sunset view over the caldera.

We had already been to Santorini, so this hiking and swimming tour was a perfect way to spend a half day. This was good for a ship's tour.

We enjoyed the hike very much. The view was fantastic. The hike is not for those with any mobility challenge. I recommend hiking only in the morning because there is no shade at all. Wear footwear with solid grip and support. The loose gravel is tricky. Bring lots of water, and a hat.
