Santorini needs not much introduction: beautiful white nested houses in harmonic shapes and ever-changing arrangements, blue churches, a truly unique light on the deep blue Aegean Sea sourrounded by steep, colorful volcanic cliffs... Santorini Island is an all-time classic for photographers. There is probably no single picture book about Greece and the Mediterranean that does not have at least a few photos from Santorini.
It has some of the most picturesque examples of Cycladic architecture, a grand and unique volcanic landscape. But it also has a much less known side of rural life and living traditions of Greek island life.

  • Some of the best light in the world

  • Delicious local food and wine

About this tour:

No other tour operator knows the island as well as we do. With a special background in geology and volcanology, we are in love with its great landscape, but also with the language, traditions and the people living there. Over the past 15 years, we have lived and spent many months on the island and visited it about 100 times and conducted more than 50 tours for all sorts of clients and groups.
We can bring you to hidden gems of the island more than 99% of tourists will never discover, and open doors you otherwise won't find.
If you like to join us on a relaxing photo tour to one of the world's prime photo destinations, this trip is for you.

8-days Santorini

Day 1-8: Photography on Santorini
There is no particular itinerary and each tour will be different. According to weather and light, as well as your photo preferences, we take you around the island on excursions by car, boat and usually short hikes to the most interesting and scenic locations, celebrations and whatever comes up.
Quite often, we will use the "Golden Light" in the morning, as well as the warm afternoon and evening light and the "Blue Hour", while during the day, we have time to go exploring locations and discover new facets of the island group.
Acc.: : Hotel in Oia (B, D)

Arrival info:

The tour starts and ends on Santorini. Santorini can be reached easily by air via Athens (and in the summer directly from many European cities), or by ferry from Pireus and other islands.
If requested, we're happy to help making arrangements or include the flight / ferry to Santorini for you.
