Aressana Hotel Santorini

When you think of your summer holidays in Santorini, the first thing that comes to mind is lying on a volcanic beach, basking in the sun and dipping your toes in the cool waters of the Aegean, or wandering the pristine alleys of the caldera. But Santorini is an island with so much more to offer its visitors; an abundance of activities suited to all tastes can transform your holidays into an unforgettable experience; all you have to do is step away from the beach for a while and explore the inland activities in Santorini.

No matter what your personal preferences are, you are bound to find at least one activity to catch your eye; whether you are into outdoor thrills and adventures, or you are more of a casual, easy going pleasure-seeker, here are some of the inland activities in Santorini you should look for!

To begin with, explore the intriguing landscape of this volcanic island in an array of exciting ways; horseback riding, hiking or mountain cycling are among the most popular selections for nature aficionados, whether you wish to join an organised tour or set off on your own to see the island’s treasures. If exhilarating physical activity is not your thing, then Santorini is home to some remarkable volcanic wines, and trying their exotic tastes in wine tastings in their very birthplace, the vineyard where they were grown, is a deeply sensual and unforgettable experience. Combined with cooking classes that introduce you to traditional Santorinian gastronomy, they are an experience not-to-be-missed.
