Itinerary

Akrotiri Excavations Archeological site

See the excavations of the prehistoric town in Akrotiri which was created in the fifth millennium BC and then was covered with ash after the eruption of the volcano around 1500 years BC. The volcanic ash, by covering the whole city, kept the biggest parts of this area protected and now it is possible to walk inside the city and also see the wall paintings and some furniture vessels.

Lost Atlantis Museum

Experience the great eruption, one of the biggest events of the prehistoric Mediterranean! Feel the earthquake and tsunami with all your senses and see the destruction of mythical Atlantis, in a 9D experience.

Cruise to the volcano & hot springs

Your cruise departs from the port. You’ll be arriving at the volcano bay, where we’ll be docking, and you can follow the path to the top where active craters are. Next, you’ll be moving to the island of Palea Kameni and the hot springs, where the water temperature is 7 degrees °C. (44,6 °F). After the bath, you will cruise to Therassia to enjoy a wine tasting.

Winery at Therassia

Visit a unique winery at Therassia and take the opportunity to see the vineyards and the premises of the wine production. You will have the chance to walk on the volcanic soil and discover the uniqueness of Therasia island. The tour is led by a wine-guide and comprises the vineyard, the wine-production, bottling and aging areas. The wine tasting of 3 wines completes ideally the visit at Therasia.

Frequently asked questions and tips

What is the private sightseeing tour?

The private tour is hiring a car and a local assistant for a few hours to go and explore the island. But with “Cozy pickups” you will not only have a well- trained professional driver, but you will also have the opportunity to learn some very interesting information about the heritage, the culture and history of Santorini from a “friend”

What happens if there are kids or elders and do we have to be in a good physical shape?

Our crew is comprised of professionals and they know how to handle special requests depending on the type of participants to make an unforgettable enjoyable experience for them.

What kind of clothes and shoes is needed to wear?

It is recommended to wear easy walking shoes because there are some specific areas where you may need to walk on uneven or rocky ground and swimwear if you wish to swim during the cruise. Furthermore, you could bring with you a change of clothes in case you feel cold when the sun goes down.

Useful tips:

During the summer time in Greece there are high temperatures and the sun is very hot. We recommend that you wear sunglasses, sunscreen and possibly a hat to protect yourself. In every one of our cruises we offer bottles of fresh water for every individual to stay cool and hydrated.
