Hiking trails are nearly empty during the night in Santorini! A wonderful opportunity to catch a break from the overcrowdedness you’ll often face on the island. Be one of the few privileged to have hiked PEACEFULLY some sections of the world famous Fira-Oia hike.
After convenient pickup from your hotel, take a relaxing drive with your guide to the Prophet Elias chapel located on the top of a hill and admire how spectacularly orange the sun becomes during Santorinian sunsets. Once the sun has completely disappeared under the horizon, it’s time to light our torches and start walking towards Fira, which will take us around 2hours.
We will use some parts of the world famous Fira-Oia hike, which during the day can get very crowded. But as nearly no one is hiking by night in Santorini, you will have the privilege to experience this hike in a very unique way: all alone!
As you hike along the trail, enjoy stops at a variety of viewpoints that let you marvel at the thousands of lights illuminating Santorini by night, and the still very visible volcano to the right.
As we reach Fira, you will be welcomed at Assyrtico Restaurant for a well-deserved relaxing evening. You will start by tasting 4 unique Santorinian wines, including the world famous “Vinsanto” while listening to your guide telling you more about the local wine culture and history. After the wine tasting, you’ll move on to a delicious homemade dinner featuring local recipes of Santorini, before being transferred back to your hotel.
