Free wheeling Greek style!

Continuing our quad bike tour of Santorini here’s a few random shots of  the scenery between the whitewashed villages.


We head to a tiny beach for a quick picnic and we have the whole place to ourselves.


Here’s a few pictures of the north east of the island including a hillside of traditional windmills.

Although they might look old it is actually a new resort of holiday homes, built to resemble the traditional mills.


Next up we head up the hair raising set of hairpin bends that lead us up Profitis Ilias mountain – Santorini’s highest peak.


Here’s a look back at some of the twisting horror road!!!


Profitis Ilias at its highest peak is 565 meters high. On the top of this mountain there is a monastery built in 1771 dedicated to the prophet Elijah and some military buildings.

After the vertiginous views of the mountain we head briefly to the beach resort of Kamari. It’s another black volcanic beach.
