Sunset and Volcano
Sunset and Volcano is a romantic trip around the Santorini’s Caldera.
It departs from the old port of Fira at 15:30 with a wooden sailling boat.
After a short trip of 10 minutes it reaches the small port of Nea Kameni, where the active volcano is. Your time there is for about 1 hour and 15 minutes where you can walk up and visit this wild landscape with the different volcanic rocks and the active craters of the volcano, where there is still smoke coming out and keenly smells sulfur.
To continue, the boat will depart for the island of Palaia Kameni, where the hot springs are located. Inside the small bay of Agios Nikolaos the water temperature is 30-35 degrees Celcious but it constantly mixes with seawater. The boat stays for about 30 minutes, enough time since there is no beach , but you have to climb down a ladder of the boat into the sea and swim a distance of about 20 meters to the interior of the small bay, where the mud baths are.
After swimming at the hot springs the boat will start a sail around the caldera where you can take magnificent pictures of the landscape and the houses that literally hang on the edge of the cliff , in combination with the beautiful colours of the sunset. On a wooden boat with sails, listening nice music and enjoying a glass of local wine.
After the sunset the boat returns back to the old port of Fira.
