AN UTTERLY SPECTACULAR 50KM CIRCUIT OF THE ENTIRE VOLCANIC RIM OF THE WORLD-FAMOUS ‘SUNKEN CALDERA’ OF SANTORINI BY FOOT AND KAYAK. 


Enjoy sweeping views of picture-postcard Cycladic white-washed villages clinging to the rim of the Caldera, against a backdrop of clear azure seas. Everyone should see Santorini at least once in their lifetime.

This rugged and challenging multi-sport attempt creates quite possibly the most memorable way imaginable to experience this magical Isle.

This is a full circumnavigation of the World-famous Volcanic island of Santorini including its neighbouring island, Thirassia. It makes a full circuit of the famous sunken Caldera over 50km and includes a climb to bag the high-point of Santorini, giving unbelievable views across the whole archipelago. The route starts and finishes in Oia, the architectural jewel of Santorini and includes 2 x kayak and 2 x foot legs.

The island is teaming with classic vistas of Cycladic white-washed buildings clinging to the cliffs, seemingly tumbling into the sparkling sea below. It is also World-famous for its sensational sunsets. Enjoy it all as you embark on this multi-sport tour of one of Earth’s most cherished spots.
