We climbed this active vulcano during our boat trip. It was amazing to see some steam (tour guide showed us) and smell real sulfur and see many craters. You should wear some good shoes for climbing and take enough water because it could be hot...More
I climbed this volcano. It is still active. It was a harder climb than Vesuvius. The stones were so small that you wind up slipping a lot. You should wear some good shoes for the climb. Don't be silly and wear something that is going...More
The trip by overcrowded wooden boat includes a swim at the hot spring, followed (or preceded, depending on the multitudes) by a trek up the dormant - NOT active - volcano. An active volcano spews molten lava, smoke and pyroclastic flows. This has a couple...More
Visited this as part of a sailing tour and it was a really neat experience. Only takes about 30 minutes to get to the top which includes time to stop and take pictures and the admission price was only 2.50 euros. Not an easy hike...More
Not far from Santorini the island of Nea Kameni can be viewed. This was formed between 1707 and 1950 and is still an active volcano today with steam reaching up to 85 degrees centigrade.
The height of the crater is about 100m. It can be...More
It's definitely worth the visit. It's not everyday we get to see an active volcano. We booked a boat tour to the volcano and hot spring. It was about €20 each and €2.50 for the volcano.
The walk itself was easy. I would advice sensible...More

There is no scheduled boat to NeaKameni, but there is a possibility to rent a smaller private boat for yourself, of course much more expensive than usual tourist party-boat with hundrade of passengers, but also surely much more enjoyable. Just ask at the New port or at your hotel on the island

The water in Palea Kameni is not that deep. According to our tour guide, in the hot springs it's around 1 to 2 meters deep. However, since the boat cannot actually go into the hot springs because it's too shallow, it would need to stop at the waters nearby where it could get to about 10 to 12 meters deep. So those who would like to swim in the hot spring of Palea Kameni would need to swim about 50 to 60 meters to get there. If you can't swim, I suggest that you just stay in the boat and just enjoy the other stops of the tour.
