    Our guided trek covers approximately 82km/51miles, 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 2, 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.

  • Getting There

    Naples airport can be reached from 8 different airports in the UK, most major European hubs and there are direct flights from Naples to New York (USA).

    Rome is well connected to the USA & Canada, Australia and further afield: you can take a short flight or the train from Rome to Naples. There are fast trains between central Rome and central Naples that take as little as 1 hr 10 mins. Please note that there is no train connection to Naples airport so you will need to make your way to the airport by bus or taxi to meet the guide and the transfer to the hotel. Allow €20 for a taxi.

  • Accommodation

    We stay at a mix of 2,3 & 4 star hotels and one night at a traditional Agriturismo. The rooms are twins or doubles with a private bathroom. Occasionally this may vary and we will inform you at the time of booking your holiday if this is the case.

    Most of the hotels have WiFi. Please note that some of the WiFi can be very slow and you may be better using your data.

    The hotels offer meals for vegetarian diets. Some of the hotels cater to other diets, such as vegan and gluten-free, but others hotels do not and so we are regretfully not able to guarantee this. It is best to bring some supplements with you. Gluten-free bread is not normally available at the hotels, but can be found in some shops in the towns.

    The hotels are reluctant to give single rooms and so we are unable to offer this.

Additional information about you

The hotels offer meals for vegetarian diets. Not all of the hotels cater to other diets, such as vegan and gluten-free, and so we are regretfully not able to guarantee this. However, Italy tends to be much better than other countries for gluten free ('senza glutine').
