What You Can Expect
Soar around Santorini’s half-submerged caldera to see the spectacular remains of the original island (Thira) that collapsed beneath the sea after a volcanic explosion in Minoan times. Continue to Santorini’s so-called ‘volcano island,’ a rocky outcrop near the main island, and see the active Nea Kameni volcano. Look for fumes pluming from the crater, and admire the black volcanic rocks dramatically juxtaposed against the deep-blue hues of the sea.
Spend longer in the air, checking out the caldera and Nea Kameni, and see a selection of Santorini’s top beaches, too! The beaches flown over are decided on the day by your pilot, but typical examples include Perissa and Kamari. Ogle the beaches’ red-tinged volcanic sand lapped by the sea, and look out for hideaway coves and secluded bays.
See the caldera, volcano and a selection of beaches, plus the island of Thirasia and two of Santorini’s prettiest villages: Megalochori and Oia. Glide above the vineyards and historical mansions of Megalochori, a charming 17th-century village, and look out for Megalochori Square where handsome tavernas spill onto the pavements.
Loop around Thirasia, the large island adrift from Santorini’s northwestern coast. Forming part of the remains of ancient Thira, the island is sparsely populated with most of its people residing in its main village. Look out for the brightly colored houses that characterize Thirasia, and then soar back over the sea to Santorini, passing the ever-scenic village of Oia. Have your camera ready to capture spectacular sights of Oia’s iconic sugar-cube houses and blue-domed churches from the air, and then glide back to the start point.
