    Our guided trek covers approximately 80km/50miles, walking in one direction from east to west high along the Amalfi Coast. We being in Amalfi town, hike to Ravello and then spend two nights in San Lazzaro, 600m above the sea overlooking the Bay of Salerno. We then follow the famous Walk of the Gods to the tiny village of Santa Maria del Castello perched on high cliffs way above the hustle and bustle of Positano. We continue high above the coastline to the beautiful town of Sant’Agata with a laid-back feel and lovely restaurants. The final stretch of our trek takes us to the furthest point along the Amalfi Coast to Punta Campanella where all you can see is the sea and the Island of Capri.

    We have hand-picked good 3 and 4 star hotels: all except one are family owned and all have en-suite bathrooms. We also spend one night at a traditional agriturismo where they grow fruit and vegetables and make their own pasta, salami, honey and wines. We have chosen to include most evening meals but have left a few others so that we can venture out and try some of the excellent local Italian restaurants.

    The trek follows well-defined historic trails, such as ancient stairways and mule tracks, passing old hermitages and convents. Some sections are rocky underfoot, some not so defined and some can be a bit over-grown with grasses: the route is not a standard tourist trail. You walk through chestnut forests, lemon and olive groves and see terraces of vineyards carved into the hillsides. You will visit historic Amalfi, cultural Ravello, and there is a free day at the end to visit the tourist honey pots of Positano, Sorrento or Capri.

    This is a seldom-followed hike, but connects some of the most beautiful coastal trekking in Europe coupled with the history of the region. The Southern Italians are welcoming and kind and you can enjoy some really good food and wine.

    The trip is deliberately run in April and October as it is too hot in the late Spring and summer months for this kind of hike. Throughout the trip you are lead by a qualified trekking Guide.
