Tour overview

Known worldwide, this trail offers every hiker lifelong memories of natural beauty. Breathtaking views while walking along the rim of the volcanic Caldera, passing through whitewashed villages that seem to hang over the void.

Gaze out at the island of Thirasia in the distance as the village of Oia comes into view. From the top of the last hill of the hike, enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view at the sunset.
