Today, we sail on a traditional boat to small islands that are home to volcanos, hot springs and traditional villages.
Visit the crater of the active volcano on the top of the island of Nea Kameni ("new burnt" in Greek) for a 1.5 hour visit.
Then sail to Palea Kameni, "old burnt", where thermal springs provide natural warm-water bathing. The surrounding water and beaches may be cold, and winds can be daunting. Your visit will be about 30 minutes long.
The next destination is Therasia Island and its typical Cycladic village. Tiny houses of various colors give a special character to these small settlements. You have about 1.5-2 hours to explore on your own. For example, discover Manolios village by walking up winding stairs (250 steps) or by a donkey ride; taste some of the traditional Santorini cuisine on your own; or enjoy a swim.
Next stop is Oia, one of the most photographed places in Greece. Small white houses dot the hillside, interspersed by splashes of rich okra, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red. It has inspired artists, poets and every visitor who visits Santorini. Oia is best known for breathtaking sunsets; if truth be told, sunrise in Oia is also magical. There are two types of dwellings, the cave houses dug into the volcanic rock on the Caldera cliffs and the Captains houses. The cave houses used to be the homes of ship crews, whereas the Captains houses belonged to the affluent class of ship owners. Many of the churches in Oia were dedicated to sailors.
