Tour overview

An overall experience of the authentic, untouched Santorini. Walk among old vineyards, admire the unique views of the Aegean and taste the unforgettable flavours of the local cuisine.

We start our hike from the church of the Dormition of Holy Mary, located outside the traditional village of Akrotiri at the Southwest part of Santorini.

The trail offers incomparable views to both sides of the island – in and out of the formation of the caldera -, and passes through old vineyards and deserted chapels.

We feel like we walk back in time, on the past of Thira.

We arrive on the beach of Mesa Pigadia, where Valanto welcomes us: a mama-chef who reveals to us all the secrets and hidden treasures of the greek cooking.

After the cooking lesson and the preparation of the delicious dishes we enjoy our homemade meal.

At the end, time for swimming and snorkelling while admiring the dramatic beauty of the scenery.
