Your day begins with a boat ride, departing the old port at 11:00am. You will sail, enjoying the stunning views, until you reach the volcano lava "Nea Kameni". This volcano is extremely famous for the beautiful caldera, the island is also known for the two small islands of black lava positioned at the centre of the basin of Santorini which are, geographically, the youngest islets in the Eastern Mediterranean. Here you have around an hour to walk up to the crater, which is still active. You will then set sail along the lava rock to reach the hot springs of "Palea Kameni". Here you will stop for around 20 minutes (off shore), giving you time to swim towards the hot springs. The yellow waters contain a large amount of sulfur and are characterized for their therapeutic purposes. Today, Agios Nikolaos which is the small cove in Nea Kameni islet is a true health source. After your swim, you will re-board the boat and sail back to the old port in Fira.
This tour does not include a guide. You have free time to enjoy the volcano and swim in the hot springs.
You have the option to take a cable car or donkey (additional cost), or walk the 500 steps to reach the old port (up and down).
