4x4 Island Adventure
hrs Estimate Duration
If you are looking for a different vantage point of the island, hop on this 4x4 adventure and enjoy a short beach break. You’ll board a bus which will transfer you to the location of the 4x4 vehicles to start your adventure. Depart for Akrotiri, located on the southern end of the island where you’ll see a lunar landscape created by the last eruption of the volcano. Drive to Vlihada beach, where you’ll have a short break to jump in the cool waters of the Aegean Sea, during the hot summer months or to simply enjoy the views. The natural beauty of this secluded beach, framed by pumice stone hills, will enchant you.
Visit the traditional village of Pyrgos and the mountain of Profitis Elias, the highest of the island (550 m) with an incredible panoramic view of Santorini. Continue on your off-road drive between Kamari and Monolithos until reaching the Galini Restaurant, where you’ll have the chance to enjoy a typical Greek snack by the sea. Your final destination is the capital of the island, Fira. Here you’ll have free time to stroll through the city and admire the beautiful views of the caldera before taking the cable car down to the port of Fira to return by tender to the ship.
