Four hiking trails in Santorini

Fira - Imerovigli - Oia

The most popular walking route starts from Fira Square, crosses the shopping pedestrian street and the catholic district, Firostefani, Imerovigli and, following the Caldera eyebrow, reaches Oia. At the height of Profitis Ilias we do not follow the cobblestone that turns to the right, so as not to miss the wonderful view offered by the external route.

Length: 10.2 km (cobblestone, dirt road, trail)

Walking time: 3 hours

Degree of difficulty: 1/5

Finikia - Kyra Panagia - Kouloumpos

The route covers almost the whole of Phenicia - one of the most unspoiled by the mass tourism villages, with many canals - and, making small detours to Evangelismos and Kyra Panagia, it goes to the beach of Karras, to the cape of Kouloumpos. It ends at the coastal asphalt road of Pano Meria.

Length: 4.6 km (cobblestone, abandoned dirt road,

trail, sandy beach)
