The Queen of the Aegean – 4 days on Santorini
Would you like to spend a few days on Santorini and are looking for a program that offers you both organized activities as well as enough free time to experience this dream Aegean Sea island on your own? Then we recommend our four-day Santorini extension program. This program includes transfers, three overnight stays with breakfast, an optional kayak tour through the caldera or a wine tour at sunset or a culinary caldera walk as well as a detailed information booklet filled with many tips for individual leisure activities for while you are on the island.
Santorini is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean, and for good reason too: The queen of the Aegean welcomes her visitors with picture book images of Cycladic charm. A powerful volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC created a truly distinctive landscape on the island: A breath-taking caldera and colourful cliffs into which the white, cube shaped houses of the island’s main towns, Fira and Oia, are nestled.
In addition to this beauty, Santorini has still more to offer such as the famous archaeological site of Akrotiri (also called the Pompeii of the Aegean), where the lives of the prehistoric islanders were preserved for time immemorial on the day the volcano erupted. Alternatively, you could enjoy a swim at the Red Beach, take a boat trip through the caldera, hike along the crater rim or visit one of the many wineries. You could hardly ask for more a variety filled vacation!
With our extension program, you will stay either at Theoxenia Boutique Hotel in Fira or at Ampelonas Aparthotel in Imerovigli, about 3 km from Fira, depending on availability. All the hotels we book are carefully selected, family-run establishments, characterized by the perfect combination of typical Cycladic charm and utmost comfort. Both hotels are directly connected to the island's public transportation system, so you can easily reach all the island's major attractions.
Exclusive Sea Kayak Tour
Our 3-hour sea kayak tour on Santorini is an unforgettable experience. Discover the south coast of the island! The tour starts near the archaeological site of Akrotiri, close to the famous Red Beach. Enjoy unparalleled views of spectacular rock formations, crystal clear waters, and beautiful beaches along the southern coast of the island. During the tour, there will be time to stop for swimming and snorkelling. This is a beginner’s tour where we introduce our guests to the basics of sea kayaking.
Sunset Wine Tasting Tour
Taste Santorini’s acclaimed wines and admire enchanting landscapes in the glow of the setting sun as you get to know three of the island's most distinguished wineries on a 4-hour wine tasting tour. Learn about the island's unique viticulture being one of the first places to produce wine in the Mediterranean. Explore the cellars at each winery to see where the wine is bottled and aged and taste some of the best wines each winery has to offer. The best, however, is saved for last: At the end of the day on your visit to the last winery, you will experience the iconic Santorini sunset while sampling the delicious wines along with local cheeses and snacks.
Culinary Caldera Walk
Enjoy Santorini at its tastiest with a local guide by your side! You can look forward to an unforgettable, delicious journey along the picturesque paths that wind along the cliffs of the caldera from Firostefani to Fira. And best of all, we enjoy this unique experience during the most beautiful time of the day: Santorini’s sunset is world-famous for being particularly colourful and truly spectacular. You’ll sample every imaginable local delicacy on this varied foray along the caldera trails and visit delicatessen’s to sample desserts, traditional island dishes, and meze, Greek tapas.
Tip: Are you finding it difficult to choose just one activity? No problem! You are more than welcome to add another of these activities for an extra charge of 130 euro/person.
