The hike from Fira to Oia is one of the most enjoyable hikes a person can take on the island of Santorini. About 6 miles one way, the hike moves along the cliffs and is a slow moving panorama of beauty. The path is paved,...More

The idea of a hiking trail that can take you to Oia all the way down to Thira with Imerovigli and Firostefani in between was a dream come true. It's by far the best way to get around. It's not a typical hiking trail as...More

We stayed in Imerovigli. The "path" is either paved walkways or well marked trail. The only place it wasn't well marked was near a small church. We walked the scary trail along the cliff side because we didn't see the trail... More

We are going to be in santorini end June and was wondering if, because of the heat, would it be a good idea to start late afternoon and catch the sunset? Fira to oia. Is there a escape to a road if we got caught in the dark?
