We set out to walk the almost 7 miles from Oia to Fira. The trail is uphill and the views were really amazing. We are not "real" hikers and don't do this accept when we travel so we learn as we go. Be sure to...More

This was one of the most beautiful days ever! My daughter and I started early in the morning from Fira and, as most other people say, we had lots of water, sun screen, and hats. We used Santorini Dave's photos as a scavenger hunt! His...More

This was an incredible hike! It was much longer than expected, but worth every second. Do wear tennis/hiking shoes because some areas are rocky and unstable. Also bring water because after certain point on the trail there are no cafes. Overall, this is a must!...More

You don’t need a guide to do this but you will enjoy having sturdy shoes (I wore hiking boots), sunscreen and bring water. It takes about 2 hours to complete and has drop dead breathtakingly beautiful views. I dare say Santorini is heaven on earth!

We began the walk mid-morning on the caldera path just behind our hotel in Firostefani. Climbing up through the village of Imerovigli on a cobbled path and then continuing on rougher tracks, the destination of Oia was tantalisingly in sight throughout - although further away...More

The hike/walk was our favorite thing we did in Santorini! We went from Fira to Oia, and stopped at Skaros Rock. It took us a total of 3 hours. We suggest bringing water and snacks. The trail is mostly paved, but sturdy sneakers are helpful...More

This is a pretty straightforward hike ... although you'd not think so by some of the reactions of the hotel staff and taxi drivers that we met - "You Walked! to Oia!?" :) The path varies between pavement, steps, road, gravel, rocks and is steep...More

From the middle of Oia, it will be hard to find the trail (atleast it was for us) because it does not start from the paved walkway. Your best bet is to walk along whatever path [some on the street, not on the sidewalk] to... More
