Action and Adventure

A day could be spent trekking the cliff side trail between the main towns of Oia and Fira.  This path offers stunning views and great photo opportunities.  Trekking in the beautiful scenery of Santorini is an invigorating and memorable experience. Walk to Skaros past blue domed chapels and beautiful landscape features, or through the town of Oia, and down the stairs to the picturesque port of Ammoudi, with its colorful boats and little fish taverns by the water.

Be sure to explore the areas outside of the towns. There is beautiful countryside where tradition still survives. Cave houses (both abandoned and occupied), gardens, vineyards, small family businesses, and tiny churches are there to be discovered.

The Caldera, seen from a boat is a source of wonderment.  Images, do not do justice to the magnitude, or to the changing shapes and colors of the marine landscape as you float on the water.  A boat trip around the Caldera lake, is a magnificent way to spend a leisurely morning or afternoon.  The views from the sea are breathtaking.

Enjoy some hidden coves for a refreshing swim, or just enjoy the scenery and the magical feeling of this unusual place. Check out the picturesque little ports and the boat houses carved into the crater wall by the water, to get a feeling of the old days. For the most adventurous ones, check out the underwater marvels or collect sea urchins from the rocks. Those who want to combine their boat excursion with underwater adventure, Santorini is one of the top dive spots in Greece. Among the island’s submarine attractions are submerged caves and myriads of fish.

For a day infused with adrenaline, choose from a speedboat tour of the island’s seascape or an off road mountain bike tour of the island’s landscape. Whether a day excursion to a nearby island, or a fun time at sea, Perivolas offers the ideal choice for day trips, sailing sunsets and swimming in secluded coves.

Throughout your stay, the captain will gladly take you out on little excursions on one of the boats, to explore the island of Santorini and the caldera or just watch the sun setting over the Aegean. As your captain he will share with you some exquisite swimming places and unspoiled little tavernas that have remained untouched by time, so you can experience the genuine warmth of Greek hospitality, away from the crowds and the tourist traps.
