Santorini Volcano: Information about the famous volcano of Santorini Greece

Santorini Volcano: Information about the Volcano of Santorini GreeceSantorini Volcano: The two small islands of lava in the centre of Santorini Greece called Palia (old) and Nea (new) Kameni, which means burned in Greek, are the youngest pieces of land in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Palea Kameni (Old Burnt Island) is less than 2000 years old, while Nea Kameni (Young Burnt Island) began to form itself only 425 years ago.
This volcano is one of the most famous attractions of Santorini. You will notice some steam coming out from the rocks and admire some amazing frozen lava formations. The daily cruises advertised everywhere won't allow you to miss the opportunity to visit it.
Once on the shore of the island of Nea Kameni, there is a 20 minute walk on a 'lunar' landscape to finally see the volcano's crater and some holes where the sulphur steam comes out from. From this island you will also be able to enjoy a nice view of the mainland.
The boat will then take you to the hot springs of Palia Kameni, where you can immerge yourself in warm bubbling water. Afterwards, the boat will lead you to Thirassia.
