Volcanic Geosites

Approximately 23 million years ago, Greece’s volcanic activity was mainly located in the region of the North Aegean. During that period, important volcanic centers were active in Lemnos.

In eastern Lemnos, visitors can see the legacy of this volcanic activity during the Lower Miocene -approximately 23 million years ago. Large volcanic domes, volcanic dykes, large pyroclastic flows, as well as hot springs, help the visitors begin to understand the enormity and reality of these once active volcanoes. They can examine the impressive volcanic structures up close and enjoy walking along the trails which wind between the 23-million-year-old volcanoes.
