When vacationing on the famous Greek island of Santorini, the hike from the town of Fira to Oia is a fantastic activity. Usually it’s recommended to do the hike in the morning hours due to the heat in summer. The distance from Fira to Oia is around 10.5km (6.5 miles) one-way and this walk shows it in its entirety..
We start our walk in the afternoon in the capital town of Santorini Fira and finish in beautiful Oia around 2 hours later in time for sunset. The walking path passes by the towns of Firostefani (great sunset) and Imerovigli on the way to Oia which is the most picturesque town on the island.
By recording the whole walk, though without side trips, interested viewers can estimate the difficulty and exercise level required for completing this hike. From Oia buses go regularly back to Fira.
Note: The audiotrack has a few problems this time with some clicky noises from my camera rig and a lot of huffing and puffing from the exercise. It may be best to enjoy this long walk with your own music or audiobook…
