This is the most obvious hike you can make on the island of Santorini and it will lead you - if you have not discovered them by now - through the sister villages of Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli, going higher up all the time above the caldera. It...more

We completed the hike earlier this month when the weather was uncharacteristically hot. Following the advice of others we left early in the morning and took plenty with us to drink. The majority of the way is easy enough underfoot, but apporpriate footwear is definitely...More

A lot of reviews say this is a mild hike...probably would be when the weather is cooler and sun isn't strong. It was hard to start out super early if you are not staying in Fira. We started the hike in Fira at about 10am....More

We were staying in Imerovigli so started from there. We followed Santorini Dave’s walking instructions, the pictures were useful. In particular, taking the low path at the Blue Note in Imerovigli makes a more interstellar and pictures walk through Imerovigli. All views are stunning. The...More

Easy to follow hike, with the most picturesque views of the island coastline. Some bits are a little rural in between fira and oia so keep a bottle of water on you. Really enjoyed this stunning walk, highly recommend!

Imerovigli is right in the center of Oia and Fira. One can choose to walk all the way from oia to Fira and cover imerovigli on the way, but it involves a walk close to 3 hours and can be a tough task. Walk between...More

Took a lot of the advice from other reviewers- started early (7:45am), headed Fira to Oia (rather than Oia to Fira) and brought water, wore athletic shoes. At times the walk was strenuous, uphill on a gravel path, but the majority (about 2/3) was an...More

This was one of our favorite things to do in Santorini. We actually started our hike in Imerovigli (one town over) since we saw Fira the previous day. The Fira portion of the hike is mostly businesses anyway. This shortened our hike slightly but really...More

This was a fun hike for two newlyweds! Make sure to bring water and stay hydrated. We found water along the way and stopped to have lunch.

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
