Visit Santorini in winter, what to expect?
Winter is steadily approaching and the number one question I get around this time of the year goes something like this, “I’m planning a winter getaway to someplace warm, is Santorini the right place for me?”. I have been a Santorini photographer for a while, so I could share some insight.
First of all, I guess “someplace warm” is rather relative and it depends on the climate you get in your own country during winter. Well if you’re dreaming of tanning in an exotic beach, I’m sorry to say that it probably won’t be possible; however, there are plenty of other things to do in Santorini and the temperature stays around + 12 C during winter here.
During winters, you can get more active and really explore the island of Santorini. In the summer you always have to watch out from the blistering heat, but around December it is very pleasant for hiking, exploring the historical ruins, walking the narrow town streets… Besides, it is not as crowded and you can really enjoy a romantic stay with your loved one.
That’s it in a nutshell. Stay tuned for a summary of the things you can do here in Santorini during wintertime, I’m preparing it right now and I’m sure it will be helpful for those of you considering coming here soon.
