Volcano hiking on Santorini island

The archipelago of Santorini is one of the potentially most dangerous volcanoes in Europe and one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. 3600 years ago an volcanic disaster destroyed one of the first European high cultures, the Minoan culture. This volcanic eruption had also an serious impact in the middle of Europe. Today the edge of the huge caldera is covered like snow has fallen on it. But there are some villages with whitewashed houses. The picturesque images of churches and the caldera are famous for Santorini. The cycladic architecture is great for photographers and walking through the lanes of these villages is an pleasure!
In the middle of the caldera there are two islands swimming like an octopus. They are the youngest islands of Greece and the reminder that there is still active volcanism in Greece. You can visit these islands and can see where the last eruption took place in 1950. The friend of Tobias Schorr, the boatman Sostis will sail with you to these islands and you will see his home island, Palea Kameni. On the hiking tours you will discover the most beautiful and interesting places of Santorini island. Tobias Schorr has been guiding on Santorini since 1996 and he is one of the few specialists on this area.
