Full description
Your first stop on this tour will be the lava island Nea Kameni, where you'll have the opportunity to walk up the soil path and approach the crater of the still active volcano. Then, return to the boat which will take you to the second lava island, Palea Kameni, where you'll find the amazing hot springs - the boat will make a stop about 50 meters from the opening, so you can swim in the green sulfur waters of the hot springs, wet your feet, or just enjoy the view! After the hot springs, the tour continues to Thirassia Island, which was once part of the island of Santorini before the volcano's explosion. Spend two hours on this amazing island and do some swimming, hang out on the beach, have lunch next to the sea, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. On the way back to Athinios port where the tour ends, you'll cruise on the King Thiras yacht under Oia where the best pictures can be taken of the amazing cliffs and breathtaking scenery. Once you arrive at the port, the bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Nice boat tour!

Collection and return were well organized. All the excursion points were approached and the tour guide was very careful to ensure that everyone found the right boat in time. Swimming in the hot springs was also well organized by the boat crew. The stay in Therassia is long enough for the ascent to Therassia or a meal right at the jetty and for souvenirs. The tour guide was very helpful in the end that everyone found the right bus for the way back.

The visit to the volcano is just superb! After I find it not correct that we were not warned on the description that we had to pay the entrance to go to the volcano, even if it is a small amount you must mention it! After the rest of the visit was a bit long .. Fortunately there was the volcano to see

Superb ride on the volcano! The hot spring is there on foot but it is muddy and orange. You have to swim 50m from the boat. The boat is very pretty and typical! On the other hand, swimming in thirassia is not pleasant and the hilltop village lacks interest. Very pretty views however.
