    Things to do in Santorini in December 

    Santorini Tours

    Santorini is internationally renowned for its fantastic sun sets and one of the very best ways to see them is onboard a tour. The Santorini Travel & Transfer Services Group offers a superb tour which stops at three must-see sites on the island before ending an Oia to watch the sun set.

    The first stop is to see the church on Panagia Episkopi – the oldest church on the island – then it's on to Pyrgos for a walk in the Medieval Castelli. After that you'll visit the monastery of Prophet Elias where you can soak up the views before heading down to Oia just in time to watch the sun set. The tour lasts around four hours from start to finish.

    Bicycle Tours

    The cool winter temperatures make December a great month for exploring the island. Santorini Adventures rents out a selection of different bikes, so whether you're interested in cycling throughout the natural volcanic terrain, through the cobbled village streets or both – they'll have the perfect bike for you. If you don't want to venture out on your own, you'll be pleased to hear that Santorini Adventures also offers various guided tours, ranging from round tips to island-wide cycling tours.

    Helicopter Excursion

    Get a completely different view of Santorini by signing up for a helicopter excursion.

There are three different itineraries to choose from, each of which lasts for a different duration and covers a different part of the island. The most comprehensive experience is the 30-minute flight which features the best that Santorini has to offer, including the caldera, volcano and beaches.
