In ancient times, Santorini was known as Kalliste – the most beautiful. If you’re an avid hiker or simply want to spend some time exploring Santorini on foot so that you can experience unparalleled views, take to the island’s network of walking paths or arrange a walking tour. The classic trek runs across the rim of the caldera, from Fira to Oia, with pit stops in the villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli and at Skaros, the first castelli (fortress) built on the island. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the countryside and the traditional ways of the locals with a hike along ancient trails through the authentic settlements of Pyrgos, Exo Gonia and Mesa Gonia. Peek into cave houses, admire historical monuments and visit churches and chapels. Speak with our concierge to arrange a tour.
