A unique experience of exploring the wild landscape of Santorini! Discover the untouched beauty of the island on a guided hiking tour and the secrets of the flavorful Greek cuisine on an informative cooking class!

After a convenient pick up from your hotel, you will be taken to the Southwest part of Santorini, in Akrotiri village, where the hiking adventure begins at a small church dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin Mary, located a little outside the village. It’s the beginning of an amazing hiking trail, offering unparalleled views of both sides of the island, in and out of the enormous Caldera cliffs that give Santorini its unique wild beauty!

As the path continues, you have the feeling that you are taken back in time and get an idea of how life on the island used to be, as you pass through old traditional vineyards and deserted chapels. It’s a way of meeting and cherishing the living style of the past generations!

This amazing hiking experience leads to the beautiful beach of Mesa Pigadia, where you will have the chance to take a rejuvenating swim in the clear waters, enjoy snorkeling or just take some time to relax before meeting a talented local chef, who will reveal to you all the hidden treasures of the Greek cuisine. Get the chance to join an interesting cooking lesson, prepare your own tasty dishes with the help of the chef and enjoy these homemade delicacies on a delicious lunch before being transferred back to your hotel!

It is a wonderful experience that combines walking in the extraordinary Santorini scenery with tasting unforgettable Greek flavors!

A great authentic experience

I can't say enough about this tour! The guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and well-prepared. They expertly guided us through the vineyards, telling stories and sharing their geography and culture. Swimming at Black Beach was refreshing after about an hours hike - and they provided us with a refreshing drink and towels to dry off after our swim. The cooking lesson was just as incredible, with an authentic Greek woman who only uses fresh local ingredients and taught us quite a few things we didn't already know about Greek cuisine! Hands down one of the best experiences on the island!
