    Santorini is famous worldwide for it’s unique landscape, the caldera, the perfect sunsets and, of course the volcano. Its eruption took place 3,600 years ago and was one of the largest and most violent volcanic eruptions in human history. In fact, it caused the collapse of the glorious Minoan civilization, as the lava ejection reached the South coast of Crete in Knossos, the center of Minoan community.

    So no wonder why the volcano is among the highlights of Santorini that you should not miss!

    How do I get to Santorini volcano?

    The best way to visit the Santorini volcano with kids is by chartering a private boat. We highly recommend this private experience since you can customize it and make it as kid-friendly as possible. This is important since the volcano area can be very hot during summer, therefore, your family might decide to stay a shorter time on the volcano and more time swimming.

    You will enjoy the 3 volcanic islands of Palia Kammeni, Nea Kammeni and Thirassia. You will swim and snorkel in amazing spots and enjoy the local flavors and delicacies offered on board.

    You can book either a 5-hour half-day or a 9-hour full-day experience. We can also design a private tailor-made itinerary just for your family!

    Families should know

    • The specific suggestion is for a family up to 6 pax
    • We do not suggest a long hiking in volcano, especially during the summer months. It can get very hot and tiring for kids of all ages
    • The meal can be fully customised to any dietary restrictions or allergies
    Address: Santorini island, Cyclades
