Additional Information

The Caldera Hike is considered to be one of the most popular activities to experience in Santorini and our signature hike. It is an approximate 6 mile/10 klm long hike on the edge of the only inhabited volcanic caldera in the world. It normally takes approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete it, but our tour lasts about 4 hours. This allows for a comfortable pace, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful hike as much as possible.

It is considered to be a moderate/demanding hike with a lot of steps, and the biggest part of it is on paved or cobblestone surfaces. It does get rugged, there is a downhill stretch that is gravel, and there is a few hundred meters of dirt road too.
