The present-day crescent shape of the island is a consequence of the activity of the volcano in prehistoric times, feeding the myth of the lost Atlantis.
Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion dating back 3,600 years and which created the current geological caldera; a giant central lagoon, more or less rectangular, and measuring about 12 by 7 km, surrounded by 300 m high steep cliffs on three sides.
The mild activity of the volcano after this major eruption has built up two small islands within the caldera, Palea and Nea Kameni visited by hundreds of people every day during the tourist season.
The impressive caldera dominates the west part of the island while the marvelous dry climate and the almost continuous sunshine create year-around conditions which are perfect for observation, photographs, and videos under an extraordinary variety of natural lights and colors.
*Please note that the volcano tour is available after mid-June.
* The schedule may be subject to change. Always check with the guide!
IMPORTANT!!!! Do not forget your Passport/ID as it is obligatory.

Then, the buses will leave for Oia. In the days of high traffic, the buses will follow a route by the sea on the east side of the island. Depending on the existing traffic in Oia and the timetable of the tour, the participants will stay for approximately 2 hours. Later on, the bus will depart for the next stop, Fira.

On the way to the town of Fira, the participants will receive interesting information by their escort about the history and the geography of the island, while travelling through a large part of the island by road. At their arrival in Fira, they will spend one hour and a half to enjoy the Cycladic view from the Caldera, the paved little alleys and the old traditional houses accompanied by their escort.
Afterwards, the visitors shall meet up at the Cathedral of Fira and they will be informed about the last part of the tour:
