The Routes

15km Route

The route of 15 km starts slightly downhill for about 250 meters to a wide dirt road and then follows a strongly uphill path 1,250 m long, with an average gradient of 12%. Then the dirt road path narrows and the form of the ground changes with several stones which need increased attention. The slope is downhill until the point located at 2.5 km. where there will be the first power station. Then the route continues on asphalt road for about 660 meters with moderate uphill slope, to get back on a path where the ground is soft and somewhat loose soil so you need a little attention as it is relatively slippery, with very steep slope for about 700 meters with breathtaking view. Attention at this point, you must move as far on the left side of the trail as possible.

The intense uphill ends at 3.8 km at the chapel of Prophet Elias, where a concrete steep alley follows up to 4.5 km which is 500 meters before the second power station at 5km. The next 2 kilometers is also quite steep in stable but fairly hard ground passing through Imerovigli and the view continues to be amazing. We continue up to the entrance of Fira until we get to the church of Saint Gerasimos where you will find the third power station and the reversal point. The way back is the same except for the point after the 11th km where before you reach the chapel of Prophet Elias, you take the paved path (also needs enough attention) on the right side until you get back on the asphalt road at the 12th km and in about 600 meters you get back on the path for the return where we meet the maximum slope just before 13.5 km, which is close to 40% (!) for 100 m. The last 1.5 km of the route is downhill.

Technical characteristics of the route:
Start - stop Elevation: 146 m.
Reversal point Elevation: 277 m.
Maximum altitude: 334 m.
Minimum altitude: 135 m.
Total positive elevation: 834 m.
Maximum slope: 37.6 %
Route Ground: Soil path with recessed stones in some places, asphalt road, paved path.

Santorini, or Thira, is the top destination in Greece and among the most romantic destinations in the Greek islands and also in the world. Located in the Aegean Sea, in the Cyclades islands, Santorini island was the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the world and what remains today is a submerged volcano and a caldera. Amazing villages has been constructed on the edge of this caldera, with Cycladic architecture and breathtaking view to the sea.
Apart from the fabulous caldera villages, Santorini Greece is also famous for the romantic sunset, the volcano and the luxurious resorts.

The event that marked its history was the enormous volcanic eruption of 1,650 BC. This eruption changed the circular shape of the island and created the famous caldera, on top of which picturesque villages were constructed in the Medieval times. The caldera villages of Santorini Greece are incredible with their traditional architecture, the paved streets and the breathtaking view to the sea.

The village of Oia, in particular, is famous for the romantic sunset. Book a hotel at the caldera and the experience of your Santorini holidays will be unforgettable. Also do not miss the restaurants with the amazing view to the volcano. This volcano can be visited by boat tour from the old port of Fira.
On the southern side of the island, there are large beaches to enjoy a day in the sun. Kamari and Perissa are the best organized beaches and famous for their black sand, while very popular is the Red Beach. Close to the Red Beach is the Minoan Site of Akrotiri, which was covered in volcanic ash by the eruption of Thira.

Santorini is famous for its romantic sunsets. The best sunset on the island is seen from Oia, but equally gorgeous are the sunsets from all the caldera villages. Great poets have sung its praises, a 4.000 year old history.
The marvelous dry climate and the almost unbroken sunshine create, all year long, conditions which are perfect for observation, photographs and videos under an extraordinary variety of natural lights and colors.
