Tour of Caldera on a Sailing Boat + Bus Transfers


SKU: 7844_8357_11826 Category:



Sail on a traditional wooden boat and tour the islands of the Caldera!


The bus leaves from the head offices in the town of Fira and transfers you to the port of Athinios.
The boat departs from the old port of Fira and heads towards the volcanic island of Nea Kameni, which lies just 10 minutes away from the bay of Fira. The boat will remain there for 1 hour 15 mins. This gives you plenty of time to walk up to the volcano’s active craters and take photos- it takes about 20 mins. It is worth reaching the top to experience the smoke evaporating and the sulfur’s intense smell, when you scratch the volcano’s surface.

The next stop is the island of Palaia Kameni where the Hot Springs are located. The boat anchors a few meters outside the small bay of Agios Nikolaos, it lowers down a ladder in the water and you will have 30 mins for a revitalising swim! You can swim a distance of about 30 meters into the famous mud baths of Palaia Kameni which are believed to have beneficial abilities for skin and other diseases. The water temperature is 30-35 degrees Celsius, but it is constantly mixed with sea water.

The island of Thirassia is the next destination of your sailing tour, where you will have 2 hours free time to swim in the crystal waters of Korfos or to taste the local dishes in one of the traditional taverns.You can walk or take a donkey ride to the nearby picturesque village of Manolas with its narrow streets – the view from there to Santorini is definitely worth a visit. 

During the return journey to the Old Port in Fira, you will experience sailing near the volcanic cliffs of Oia for a chance to capture with your camera the unique scenery.

The bus will wait for you at Athinios Port to return and transfer you back to Fira Central Square.
