Santorini Island from Elounda and Agios Nikolaos

Adult: £163 Child(4-11 yrs): £81

Curved around a colossal, sea-filled caldera that was formed by a volcanic eruption 3,500 years ago, Santorini is the most southern island of the Cycladic group in the Aegean Sea.

The island is widely renowned for its unique breath-taking views, beauty and colours: black sand, white washed houses, red cliffs and the deep blue Aegean Sea.

And this day trip which begins with a high-speed catamaran cruise is a great chance to take a close-up look at it.

When you arrive at the port of Santorini, Athinios, you will board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus and enjoy the beautiful countryside on a drive to the northern tip of the island - along the way, an experienced guide will provide information concerning the island and its history.

At Oia, soak up the magnificent views of houses studded along the volcanic rock hillside overlooking the ocean before visiting the island's capital, Fira.

Here, you will have free time to explore the picturesque traditional little alleys, admire the incomparable aesthetics of Aegean architecture, shop or simply enjoy a drink and the unique view of the volcano over the magnificent cliffs of Caldera.

You have the choice of either staying for longer in Fira or visiting the magnificent black beach of Perissa – Perivolos or taking a boat tour to Caldera (depending upon availability).
