A guided hiking tour on Santorini volcano island. Discover the nature, geology and archaeology with the experienced tour guide Tobias Schorr. The tours start and end Saturdays and include accommodation, guiding (at the excavations there is no guiding possible, but we can arrange an "official" Greek guide), half board, guide for the hikes, entrances.
1. day: Arrival at JTR airport & transfer to the hotel
Visit of the Minoan excavations of Acrotiri (I recommend an official guide for that visit, ca. 100-150 €, optional).
Bus drive to Thira town and a visit of the museum of the Minoan excavations. Hike to the village of Ia in the afternoon (about 3-4 hours). Great tour with opportunity to take photos, discover geological sites and to understand the prehistoric history of Santorini. Dinner in a traditional tavern in Ia. Opportunity to take photos of the famous sunset without masses of tourists.
Hike on the "peninsula" Acrotiri to interesting geological sites, like the "red beach", the Agia Kyriaki intrusion and the Taxiarches intrusion. Lunch at a nice tavern. Opportunity to hike to the lighthouse of Acrotiri.
Visit of Pyrgos village with its scenic views over the entire island. Hike down to Emporio village.
Private tour to the volcano islands of Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni with interesting craters and thermal springs. A unique opportunity to discover the volcanoes of Santorini.
Transfer to Kamari village and hiking up to the ancient town of Thira that was excavated by the German archaeologist Hiller von Gärtringen.
