Tour Details
Tour code: JTR04

The Santorini volcano tour is a 3 hour visit to Santorini’s volcano and its craters and to the Hot Springs of Palaia Kameni by boat. 

The Santorini volcano tour starts from the picturesque old port of Fira.

Gialos, the Old Port, lies below Fira, nestled at the foot of a rocky cliff. You will be surprised with the steep slopes of the Caldera and in the end the tiny port will appear under these huge rocks and the cave houses that seem to dangle on the cliff. There the guides of your excursion will be waiting for you, to give you all the important information and to orientate you on the boat.

Our first destination will be the famous volcano of Santorini! After 20 minutes sailing, we will reach Nea Kameni. If you are interested to be guided at the volcano, you will walk to the volcano’s ridge with your guide and you will listen to everything about the history and the geology of the volcano. You will stay at the volcanic island for 1,5 hour.

Next we reach by boat the island of Palea Kameni with the hot springs, the famous mud baths, which were formed as result of volcanic eruptions.

In the small bay of Agios Nikolaos the water temperature ranges from 30 to 35 degrees Celsius, as it mixes continuously with the normal sea currents. The waters are mixed with mud that they are full of sulfur, iron and other metals coming from the volcano and they are very good for the skin, rheumatism, arthritis and other physical pains. Important Note : In order to reach Agios Nicholaos’ beach is essential to swim extremely well

The boat will be staying here about 30 minutes to allow you a healthy bath. After the bath, you will return to the old port of Fira.

Allow enough time to get to the old port. We were told to exchange the online voucher for tickets at a excursion agency at the old port. Google maps couldn’t find the location because it’s actually on the port level directly in front of where the boat departs. We had allowed plenty of time and even though it took us a few wrong turns (about 30 minutes worth), we made it in time. We took the cable car down – beautiful views and very comfortable however, in March, it doesn’t operate very frequently. We climbed the 600+ steps up to old town Fira – not for the faint hearted or less fit. It took about 20-25 minutes to get to island by boat. The tour of the volcano was interesting. The guide spoke English very well and she was very knowledgeable. Please wear proper walking shoes… it’s a bit of a hike to the top where clouds of sulphur are visible and one can feel the heat of the active volcano by touching the ground. The views are stunning. The tour allows enough time to explore. The hot springs are another 20 mins or so boat ride away. One needs to be a reasonable swimmer as the boat anchors a short swim from the actual hot spring. The crew supply noodles – may not be necessary for strong swimmers. In late March the water was cold but the hot spring water was very pleasant. Warning, the rocks and water stain lighter coloured swimwear! Light snacks and drinks are available for purchase on the bust. The crew were friendly and helpful. All in all this was great value for money.

Nice short trip. The hike up to the volcano was great! The second part to the hot spring is not much if
you are not getting in the water

Definitely not worth it. Very rushed thru out. Warm beer in the ‘snack bar’ with not much else. Crammed
everyone on board and not enough seats. Very disappointing tour to locations that would have been
wonderful if planned well.

Wir haben die Tour um 11.00 Uhr zu den Hot Springs und zum Vulkan in Mitten der Kaldera gebucht. Der Preis betrug 20€/ P. Das Boot war mit ca. 80 Gästen voll bestezt. Zunächst ging es zu den heißen Quellen. Bereits auf dem Boot musste man sich umziehen, da man insgesamt nur 30 min vor Ort zum Schwimmen bekommt. Das Boot legte im Wasser vor den Quellen an und man musste von hieraus ins Wasser steigen und zu den Quellen schwimmen. Bis der letzte im Wasser war, waren bereits gut 10 min vergangen. Bis man wieder zum Boot schwimmen musste hatte man nicht länger als 10 min in den Quellen baden können. Leider sehr kurz. Die Wassertemperatur betrug ca. 25 Grad Celsius – wenig wärmer als das Umgebungswasser zu dieser Jahreszeit. Es ist von den gelösten Metalloxiden orange-gelb gefärbt. Diese Pigmente lagern sich sehr stark in die Badekleidung ein – ein weißer Bikini ist danach apricotfarben. Anschließend ging es zum Vulkan. Der Zutritt kostete weitere 5€/ P. Leider hatte man hier bis zur Rückfahrt nach Santorin keine ganze Stunde Zeit. Die Fumarolen sind nicht sehr groß und nicht so gut zugänglich, aber der Ausblick ist sehr schön und man kann den Vulkan auf vielen Wegen begehen. Die Führung erklärte relativ wenig zum Vulkan selbst und es blieb nicht genug Zeit, das Gelände ausreichend abzugehen. Es war ein ziemliches Gehetze.

Fazit: Wer die Quellen nicht gesehen hat, verpasst rein gar nichts. Wenn man aber den Vulkan gerne sehen möchte, kommt man um eine solche Tour nicht herum.
Empfehlung: bereits vor Beginn Badekleidung unterziehen, wegen der Verfärbungen durch die Quelle keine helle Badekleidung einpacken
