One of the top activities in Santorini is hiking from Fira to Oia. If you wish to save some energy, you can actually avoid starting the trail from Fira, as it passes through the village of Imerovigli and Kasimatis by La Perla. It takes approximately 2 exciting hours of hiking through the marvels of Santorini to reach the village of Oia with the unique architecture and the amazing views. Alternatively, you can choose to walk just as far as to the capital of the island, Fira. It will take you 20 to 25 minutes to be in the liveliest spot of the island. Keep in mind that both routes offer amazing caldera views all the way through. For more hiking, you can visit the village of Pyrgos, where paths will take you down to the alluring village of Emporio and the beaches of Perivolos and Perissa or up to the Monastery of Prophet Ilias for awe-inspiring panoramic views!
