Trekking in Santorini will unravel its beauty

For those seeking an interesting hiking path through Santorini’s most beautiful sites and for those who have never hiked before, there is an amazing hike not to be missed. Following the path lasting approximately 3 hours and covering almost 9 km from Fira all the way to Oia you will have the ultimate Mediterranean experience.

To find the path’s starting point, you can follow the signs from Fira to the cable car. But, in case you are already at Imerovigli you can just track the path from there at the Aghios Georgios church. There is a great opportunity to stop and admire the breathtaking view of the volcano. No reason to worry about getting lost, the caldera rim will always keep you on the right track. On the outskirts of Imerovigli the first clear trail will seem magical. You will pass a great number of beautiful little churches, and you may make a stop whenever you feel like it. At any point the view will be great and your little break will only empower to continue.
The hardest and most beautiful part is climbing the Mavro Vouno, also offering a majestic view. We definitely propose to pick this spot in order to experience the dazzling sunset. At the top you can enjoy the wonderful view of Oia that lies in front of you. Just 10 minutes distance and your hiking tour is about to finish off in the most marvelous way.

Though it may seem tiring and overwhelming, this hiking path that passes right next to Tholos resort, will reward your patience. It has incredible view all the way, unique spots to rest, and the azure Aegean Sea spreading before your eyes. Whether this is your first experience or not, hiking will become your favorite activity after completing this amazing tour!
