The walk up the volcano was not extremely difficult but would not recommend to people who have difficulties uphill, as it is a bit rocky and steep. However, the views are absolutely to die for!!! We went on a tour with santorini excursions - Dakoutros...More

The volcano is active one and last known activity was in the 50s and it was a mild one. Here we need to hike for a mile to see the active volcano. Not the lava bubbling sight, but just a vantage point.:)

In my opinion you can't go to Santorini and not set foot on Nea Kameni (the Island in the middle of the caldera). We did one of the boat trips (Dakoutros brothers) and the whole trip took a couple of hours. It was interesting to...More

Awesome adventure to walk on an active volcano where you can see many beautiful views of Santorini. Walk among the volcanic rocks and feel hot spots along the way.

I'll be traveling late June and will be in week 31/32 of pregnancy and was wondering how steep the hike is? Any other dos and don'ts when pregnant related to this trip? Advices are highly appreciated! Thanks!

I agree with kcarters. It's not an easy climb at times and the footing is always unstable, so I'd advise that you leave it for another visit. The view is amazing but not worth the danger for you
we are visiting family in Santorini in July with our 7 year old. i remember getting on a boat and going to the volcano as a child (best mud fight ever) can we take are 7 year old into the springs or have the rules changed. i remember using a rubber ring! thanks in advance.

I have read some reviews that say you have to be a strong swimmer to visit the thermal pools. Is this correct or can you access the area from the shore?

You don't have to be strong but definitely steady. The boats moor about 100-150m away (they are generally too big to get in closer) so you have to be capable of making the swim there and back. If you have coloured hair don't... More
