About Oia

1. Hike from Fira to Oia- The Caledra trailDistance: 10 kmIdeal Time: 3-4 hours (one way)Popularly known as the caldera trail, the cliff walk from Fira to Oia should be on every traveler’s list. This hike offers incredible views of the Aegean Sea and the famous Greek Caldera(which was formed because of the volcanic eruptions in the Aegean Sea.)The walk will take you through the beautiful villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli on the way. All along the trail, the routes are properly marked and there will be no problems in finding your way. This hike from Fira to Oia is a perfect way to explore the interiors on Santorini. In Firostafani and Imerovigli, you will be able to see some beautiful local houses and alleyways which is a nice contrast to the beautiful and vast sea views that you will get all along the cliff. At Imerovigli, you can also take a detour and visit Skaros Rock (only if you have an extremely good stamina)Even though the distance of this caldera trail is not much but the terrain is highly uneven. Though the suggested time is between 3 and 4 hours, don’t be disheartened if it takes you more time. The entire trail from Fira to Oia is so mesmerizing that it’s easily possible to lose track of time. If you don’t walk or hike regularly, you might find the hike tiresome.Another important thing to remember is that once you cross Imerovigli, you will not find any shops or restaurants. So pack sufficient water and food for the way. After this trip, I felt that hiking in Santorini was worth every bit of my time :-)
