Description

Skim across the sea from Kos to spend a day on the volcanic shores of Nisyros. Descend into the vast caldera at the heart of the island, and then while away a free afternoon in the port town of Mandraki, where you can grab lunch, visit the monastery, or soak in geothermal hot springs.

Get picked up from your hotel and head to the pier, where you board a boat to cruise over to the neighbouring island of Nisyros. When you arrive, make your way to the volcanic valley, which, at 2.5 miles (4 km) across, is the largest in Europe. If you'd like, buy a ticket to venture down to the centre of the caldera and see the shimmering yellow crystals formed by the sulfurous steam venting from the earth.

After visiting the volcano (optional with extra charge), enjoy 3 hours or so of free time in the charming, whitewashed village of Mandraki. Find a quaint taverna for a bite to eat, and consider making the 128-step climb up to the Monastery of Panagia Spyliani, the perfect vantage point for gazing out over the azure waters and Nisyros' surrounding islands. If you'd like, you can even visit the renowned hot springs on the outskirts of town, relaxing with a therapeutic soak amid the pistachio, olive, fig, and almond trees before catching the boat back to Kos.

Very nice and interesting island. Maybe a better organization and the local guide can improve the experience. It has to be visited.

This trip was ok, honestly wasn't really too enjoyable for me of my 6 year old. Was an early start with a good few hours on coaches and the boat to spend 45 mins at the volcano. I had to pay extra on the day for the coach once we got to the island which I wasn't aware of. Also the shop by the volcano was cash only too, thankfully I had a little change to get my son a drink. The English tour guide was good, when we returned from the volcano to the town he took people on a tour and said he would take everyone to a good restaurant. We parted from the tour because it wasn't allowing us to actually look in the little shops and found our own place to ear. At this point my 6 year old was very fed up and hot from all the travelling and walking all over the place. I think it would be a good trip for adults, or those with older children. The island itself was lovely, the shops was great and we had a nice meal at the sea front. Overall, it was ok, but unfortunately disappointing.
