Journey to the Center of the Earth

If you think that this can only happen in Jules Verne’s novels, let us inform you that it happens in Santorini too. You just need to get on a boat from the Old Port or Athinios or Vlychada or Oia and turn it into a magical vehicle that will transport you to the newest land of Europe, Nea Kameni. It is really impressive to walk on the pieces of lava and know that these pieces were in the center of the earth just a few decades ago. Especially at this time of the year with the beautiful weather, your trip will be very exciting.
The boats moor in the port of Nea Kameni for a while and the passengers walk the path to the top.
The route is very imposing because it passes through lava rocks which come in various colours as Nea Kameni is created by more recent volcanic eruptions, ie from 197 BC until AD 1950.
