your experience

The Santorini Cable Car serves as a vital link between the town of Thera and Fira port. Established back in 1979, the cable car is jointly owned by several different communities of Santorini. At its peak, the cable car was serving over 1200 people every hour! This number has been reduced, however, due to Covid restrictions. The ride offers some of the most brilliant views of the surrounding calderas and coastal settlements. Bask in unmatched sights of the white-washed houses nestled atop the 1300-foot cliff. The view of the deep blue Aegean Sea is truly a sight to behold as you ascend to the town of Thera on top of the caldera at the island’s western tip.

Besides the incredibly enjoyable ride, you will also be supporting the traditional mule drivers of Santorini by taking the cable car. A percentage of the ticket earnings are redirected to the mule drivers to help them preserve their tradition.
