Walking the Amalfi Coast | Guided Group | SAVE £50 per person

Total Distance 23 miles (37km) | Average distance per day 6 miles (9km)

Follow the coast an hour south of Naples and you will end up at, without a doubt, one of the most picturesque landscapes of Europe. The Amalfi region of full of beautiful villages perched on coastal mountains and vibrant colours from the stunning wildlife surrounding the turquoise sea.

This tour offers you the opportunity to wander the rugged coast, full of gorges, beaches, lemon groves and traditional quaint villages such as Positano, Ravello and of course Amalfi itself.

At only a short drive away, the ruins of Pompeii are a must-see. Due to its long lack of air and moisture, after being buried in volcanic ash for nearly 17 Centuries, the ancient Roman town is a real insight of life prior to the eruption.

Another highlight of the tour is the “Sentiero degli Dei” (‘the Path of Gods’) walk. This stunning hike takes you across one of the most spectacular and wild gorges of the Amalfi coast. You will, of course, also have the opportunity to taste traditional food and wine.

Your walking holiday in Italy

Walking the Amalfi Coast | Guided Group | SAVE £50 per person

Total Distance

23 miles (37km)

Average distance per day

6 miles (9km)

Suitability

Activity Level: Leisurely/Moderate

4 days centre-based walking with low altitude throughout.

The Amalfi Coast is home to some of the best-loved walks in Europe; the varied scenery and temperate climate make this a heaven for hikers and ramblers. The pace of the walks allows time to rest and enjoy the views, however, the terrain encountered on some of the paths is similar what you may find on a moderate walking trip.

The terrain and type of path will vary from man-made paved tracks and tarmac to forest trails. Whilst most walks are manageable for those with a good level of fitness, the walks involve some steep climbs and descents on slightly loose terrain and some have sections on narrow pathways alongside some sheer drops (not recommended for severe vertigo sufferers). Optional walks on Mount Vesuvius are on rocky cinder/gravel trails and likely to be loose underfoot, with steep sections and quite large drops in places.

On most days, there are considerable sections of steps (over 1500), which make the walks unsuitable for those with knees problems. Walks usually take between 4 and 6 hours including lunch stops (depending on the pace of your group) and require a good level of fitness. Summer temperatures can make some of the walks more strenuous. If you are concerned about the difficulty of the walks we recommend calling us to discuss the trip in more detail.
