Walking Tour of Santorini Caldera

The Caldera Walking Tour is the best hiking tour around the volcanic rim in Santorini. Highly recommended!

Santorini Hikes and Walking Tours

  • DIY Santorini Walking Tour: You don’t need to do an organized tour to enjoy the great walks in Santorini. The best hike in Santorini is the caldera path from Fira to Oia. And for that you just need to get to the caldera and start walking. (Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, and Oia all make fine starting points for the caldera hike.) For non-caldera villages (Emporio, Pyrgos, Megalochori) the best spots to explore are usually pretty obvious.
  • The Caldera Walking Tour is the best walking tour for the Fira to Oia hike. Once again, you don’t need to do a tour, but doing so will provide interesting info and insight.

The Best Santorini Walking Tours

Santorini Walking Tour

Walking along the Santorini caldera and the island’s cliffside villages is a highlight of visiting Santorini.

  • Caldera Walking Tour – The walk between Oia and Fira is amazing and this tour makes it better. The tour includes hotel pick up and drop off which is super helpful – especially if you’re not staying right next to caldera path (and could save you the cost of two taxis). (3 to 5 hours)
  • Santorini Food & Walking Tour – Start in Firostefani and walk downhill to Fira with at least 7 stops for great food, local beer, wine, raki, Santorini cheeses, cold cuts, olive oil, bakery treats, and traditional sweets. (4 hours)
  • Customized Hikes – Private walking tours of the caldera, small traditional villages, or the south coast beaches. (Expensive)

  1. Pyrgos Walking Tour

    Where is the best place to walk in Pyrgos, Santorini? Is Pyrgos worth a visit?

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Yes, Pyrgos is a great village to explore on foot. Take the bus from Fira and get off in the center of town. From the restaurants around the main square starting walking up towards the castle and church (you’ll see it up the hill and can’t miss it). There are a few different routes along twisted alleys but they all get you to the same place. Along the way, Cava Alta restaurant has great food and Franco’s cafe/bar has great views.
