Geology tour

On the sixth day, scrape the surface of the volcanic island of Milos and explore the geological wealth and history of this mesmerizing island. Milos is one of the four volcanoes in Greece and thanks to its volcanic history it constitutes an open geological museum offering the chance to witness some unique geological phenomena.

This five-hour tour will take you on a fascinating journey through more than 10,000 years of mining history and volcanic activity, around colourful landscapes of the Aegean. The tour takes your breath away and includes light lunch.

Location

Most people know the island as the place where the famous statue of Venus, or Aphrodite, now in the Louvre Museum in Paris, was discovered. It is only recently that tourism has noticed the beautiful beaches of this Cycladic Island, with its rocks, clear waters, and landscapes.

Milos Island is "the Island of Colours" thanks to its splendid, manifold beauties of volcanic origin. Milos is the most Western island of the Cyclades, in Greece. It has 4,966 inhabitants scattered over seven small towns (like Adamas, Plaka, and Tripitì). The island is ample, due to the very large and beautiful gulf is in the very middle of it, which gives the island a horseshoe shape, for 151 kilometers square.

There are more than 70 beaches, each one with its own characteristic and beauty. Milos does offer an interesting and unforgettable vacation. The months of April and May are ideal to see the island blooming, to smell its keen perfumes, and to ride around to see exceptional wild landscapes.

In September and October, the colour of the sea, the beautiful sunsets, and a gentle breeze give Milos Island a calm atmosphere and allow you a very restful vacation.

Besides its history and natural beauty, the heart and soul of the island is its flourishing gastronomy; from traditional local recipes that date decades ago to the modern impressive wide range of restaurants that offer top notch flavours and quality services, without diverging from the spirit of the local production.
