This walk is, in a word, spectacular! Our family with teen children 12&18, had the best hike from Fira. There are a few villages along the way and many cafes to stop and sip a soda, or lunch along the Agean with a beautiful view...More

Amazing hike from fira to oia. If you are fit and can stand the heat definitely do this walk. It's a very easy path to follow with amazing views and gorgeous hotels on the way. Don't get a taxi or pay to get to oia...More

I had in my head that I would do this hike before I came to Santorini, and I’m glad I had researched it and did it. The island itself is overrun with tourists, so it’s hard to enjoy the towns of Fira and Oia...however beautiful...More

Response from Azi Y | Reviewed this property |
From the middle of Oia, it will be hard to find the trail (atleast it was for us) because it does not start from the paved walkway. Your best bet is to walk along whatever path [some on the street, not on the sidewalk] to... More
