Amalfi Coast and Mountains

A large part of the Amalfi Coast and Mountains walking holiday is, of course, along the Amalfi coast, and it includes all the famous coastal villages: Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Praiano and the scenic Positano.

Alta Via: Amalfi and Sorrento Coast to Coast

On this tour you will discover that there are still places on the famous Amalfi Coast where you can be all by yourself, surrounded by nature. The Alta Via is definitely a must for the avid hiker. It is the long distance trail which runs high above the Amalfi Coast, from Cava dei Tirreni in the very East, to Punta Campanella, the tip of the Sorrento Peninsula.

Sardinia Explorer

This trip will take you to the heartland of the wild Supramonte region along Sardinia’s east coast, the island’s most spectacular area for trekking, where sheer limestone cliffs coloured by wildflowers drop down vertically into the blue Mediterranean Sea. This holiday is an ideal mix of moderate-grade hiking and some lazy relaxation, topped off by Sardinia’s fine traditional cuisine and strong local wines.

Where Do our Walking Holidays in Italy Take Place?

The Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast offers a stunning combination of sea, picturesque coastal towns and mountains, an abundance of both culture and nature. The landscape is varied and offers ever-changing views. It can be typically Mediterranean, intoxicating with its wild perfumed herbs, with myrtle shrubs, thyme, rosemary and mastic trees, or almost alpine with meadows and bare rocks.

The Ligurian Coast

The Ligurian coast,  known as Italia’s ‘Flower Riviera’, will enchant you with its unique coastal and forest trails. It stretches from the French border all the way to Tuscany and offers wooded slopes plunging towards the sea, where fishing villages of tall, sorbet-coloured houses nest in small bays and coves. Fish and seafood dominate the local cuisine, as do rare white wines such as Sciacchetrà.

Sardinia

The island of Sardinia has long been known for its sandy beaches and clear sea and is immensely popular as a summer retreat. Only recently its many unspoilt natural and cultural treasures have gotten the right attention from nature lovers and walkers. It is still possible to wander its many spectacular trails, enjoying the peace of a real hiker’s paradise.

The Alpe Adria Trail

The Alpe-Adria-Trail connects the three regions of Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia in a total of 43 stages and circa 750 km. On our Slovenian holidays you will walk along some of the best parts of the trail from the heart of the Slovenian Alps to the beautiful sunny wine region on the Italian border. You’ll cross a stunning mountain pass, and follow the emerald-green Soča River as it carves its way through the gorgeous Trenta Valley. You’ll trek the Italian-Slovene border along a mountain ridge, before descending into the Italian wine country.
