Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail, Santorini

#1 of 51 in Trails in Greece
To see the best of what Santorini has to offer relatively quickly, tackle Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail. Hundreds of people hike the 9 km (5.5 mi) long trail every day, stopping along the way to discover the island's picturesque beaches, small villages, and ancient churches. The scenic trail covers a variety of terrains, including some rocky and steep pathways for which you should bring a pair of comfortable hiking shoes. The best time to start the hike is just after sunrise or late in the afternoon, during the coolest parts of the day. Wear a wide-brimmed hat, and bring lots of drinking water and a light snack.

  • Great hike with amazing views. Go from Thira to Oia and Early (like 8 am) or earlier to beat the heat. Takes 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Bus it back for €1.80. June 2019
  • Amazing views of the Caldera while walking. When on Santorini, and you're physically ok, you have to make this hike. I took a bus from Oia to Fira and hiked the 11 km back in about 4 hours. The last hill, you can use a donkey if you want. Do take some refreshments and a hat. I did the complete hike on sneakers. Amazing views of the Caldera. The last chapel on the road is also an amazing spot to watch the sunrise without being surrounded by a crowd (tip from a local).
