Iconic Volcano Santorini Fireworks Cruise 2023
Introducing the most astonishing Volcano Santorini Fireworks Cruise
The month of September hosts the most spectacular event of the year. The Municipality of Santorini pays homage to the natural calamity of so many centuries ago; the eruption circa 1620 BC which transformed the island into the unique crescent shape of today, creating all the spellbinding geological features that make Santorini a pole of attraction for many visitors across the globe.
The municipality’s ‘Ifestia Festival’ event agenda includes various festivities happening all around the island, however, it all culminates with an epic fireworks show over Santorini’s emblem: the eonic Volcano.
The volcano of Santorini is a marvel that reminds us of the raw power and sheer force of nature. It is a location that commands humility and reverence within us. In fact, the most popular cruises are those that take you up, close and personal to the volcano of Santorini; simply because it is a disarming sight to behold. And once a year, the volcano of Santorini is at its brightest and most extravagant. A thousand and one fireworks light the sky above it, as a way of replicating the sighting that changed the island forever.
Join our Volcano Santorini Fireworks Cruise and indulge all of your senses with front-row seats to this once-in-a-lifetime event, in a Santorini Catamaran excursion that has it all. A BBQ meal and cocktails, the famed sunset, the volcano and a fireworks show, all in one. Curious to find out more?
