Stefanos Crater (Volcanic Valley - Nisyros Island -Greece.

Volcano of Nisyros

The volcano of Nisyros, along with Methana, Milos and Santorini, is among the active volcanoes of our country. All of these volcanic centers are located in an imaginary arc that starts from Corinth and ends up in Nisyros. This area is called the "active volcanic arc of the southern Aegean".

The volcano of Nisyros is located in the village of Nikia and is the most important attraction of the island. It has a total of five craters with a larger "Stephen", 260 meters in diameter and 30 meters deep. The five craters of the volcano form the Lakki plateau, created by the volcano eruption in 1552. The last crater of the volcano, "Mikro Polyvotis", was created in 1887, when the last - so far - hydrothermal explosion volcano.

The volcano of Nisyros is considered active and because of its easy access to its craters, it is visited by thousands of people every year, as well as by special scientists. All you have to keep in mind if you are going to get off the bottom of the volcano is the closed shoe. The smell of sulphur can be intense (it smells like a clown egg) but it is a unique experience that every visitor of the island must live on.
