Formed from volcano eruptions, Nisiros is a place of wild beauty. According to mythology, during the period of the Gigantomachy (war of the Giants) Poseidon (the god of the sea) plucked a rock from Kos and in anger threw it at the giant Polivotis with the intention of killing him.

Information about the excursionAvailable from 1st of May
Nisyros, one of the smallest and beautiful islands of Dodecanese. Still untouched from today's modernism, is rich in unparalleled natural beauties and cultural heritage. It leads its life between the white painted narrow streets of its capital Mandraki, and the semi-wild nature of Volcanic Valley.
Have your breath taken away, as our guide accompanies you in coach, driving up 2000 feet to the highest point of the mountain for visit to the Volcano, one of the few dormant volcano's in the world. Experience the incredible panoramic view before starting the descent to the crater, where you will feel the alive volcano, bubbling under foot, and see the sulphur hissing.
The visit of the island is not complete without a homage to the old Byzantine castle, which hosts the Monastery of Virgin Mary, carved into the rock. Myth has it that Monastery was established by regretted pirates who became its first monks.
