Walking and study tours:

Walking on Santorini Island
Volcanic areas are among the most interesting and beautiful areas of the planet. You don't need to be a determined "volcano chaser": We also offer a range of selected hiking, walking and study tours, where our focus is wider: volcanoes, geology, minerals, nature, culture and history.
