Scientists have located 30 points of intense seismic activity within the Methana Volcano, and while it is currently calm, the volcano is still considered active. Rising out of the volcanic arc of the Aegean, it is surrounded by two powerful neighbours, Nissyros and the notorious Santorini.

While the journey begins with a paved road, the path to the summit takes hikers through a beautiful pine forest and past imposing limestone rocks. At the end of the clearly marked trail, visitors climb up to the very precipice of the volcano's crater.

According to Pausanias, the ancient traveller, the volcano last erupted in the third century BC.
