Perfect temperature for the hike at the end of March. My friend’s mother came along as a first time hiker. We went slow with a lot of stops but completed the hike in about 3 hours. She is now able to say she is a hiker!

I did this trek in early-October while staying in Oia, after an unforgettable ten days sailing the Cyclades. I started in Oia and went a little more than halfway, where I rendezvoused with a friend who was staying in Fira; we walked back together to Oia for dinner. This is a walk-hike mix trail with just enough incline to keep your heart pumping. You're exposed the entire time and I underestimated the need for water -- bring a good two liters. This is a perfect trek for beginner hikers and a must-do for photographers. The distant perspective of Oia (and I imagine Fira) is absolutely stunning. I didn't do this during sunrise or sunset, but will make a point of it next time (although watching the sunrise and sunset anywhere in Santorini are among the best in the world!). There's a bus that runs between Fira-Oia and Oia-Fira throughout the day, so you can make this a one-way hike, if you want. Just check the bus schedule -- and know they won't run on time; you're in Greece!

Did this as my first solo hike. So enjoyable! I began at 6pm and met my family for dinner in ammoudi bay at 830pm (drenched in sweat). Beautiful views of the caldera from high on a ridgeline. The path itself is mostly cobblestone, with some dirt path, ending in the white marble sidewalks of Oia. I recommend doing this as a sunset hike, if you can stand the heat!

Did the walk several times. With cameras and interaction with everything/everybody we saw it took 4+ hours. Delightful!! As a (mere) walk it was 1:50 from Fira to Oia. Worth doing it each morning on a trip filled with good food and drink.
