Ifestia Festival


“Thera eruption” or “Minoan eruption” as it is known, was a catastrophic volcanic eruption that took place in 1613 BC, which, however, gave this unique geomorphology to the island of Santorini.

Renowned for its stunning cliff “Caldera”, the biggest in the world, this was a result of this volcanic eruption. Santorini now is offering an amazingly beautiful scenery with the most spectacular views in the world!

Thus, every year around mid-August, the municipality of Santorini, organizes a dramatically realistic representation event of the volcanic explosion with fireworks and sounds, traditional dancing, costumes, music concerts, local food and more.

It is a unique phantasmagorical night, offered exclusively by the hospitable people of Santorini, celebrating those at first unpleasant events of volcanic explosions that resulted eventually to the formation of one of the most unique places on earth!

TIP: Mystique, placed exactly on Oia’s most famous cliff, offers the perfect view to the volcano, and is the unique setting to enjoy this spectacular event!

Full Moon Concert


Under the light of the full moon of August, the magical scenery of the SAF, the leading soloist of harp of KYKLOS ENSEMBLE, Maria Bildea, takes us in the vastness of her music.

Simple and unpretentious, letting nature and music become one.

As most free runners admit, a great place to practive parkour is Santorini, this beautiful Greek island with the small cave houses, the arches roofs, narrow streets and its amphitheatrically position.

In fact, many free runners go to Santorini to practice parkour over the roof tops of Oia and Fira, while many advertisement trailers are shot there, with the Aegean Sea and the Caldera as their backdrop, making this sport more familiar to common people.
