Let’s discover one by one the volcanic islands of Greece and take in their extraordinary beauty.

1.       Santorini

Santorini island

The breath-taking scenery, the unique caldera, the exquisite villages amphitheatrically perched on the edge of the cliffs are reasons enough to visit the world-renowned island of Santorini. The iconic caldera was the result of the eruptions that took place between 1613-1614 BC and the entire island of Santorini was reborn from its ashes. The ashes enhanced the island’s soil with exquisite minerals that give a distinctive taste to locally produced goods and wines. Ashes that where spread across the surface, forming the multi-colored volcanic beaches of Santorini that will leave you breathless.
