Amalfi Coast is among Earth’s most unique and awe-inspiring locations. A true gem of a landscape, it hides several corners to discover in its midst, making a walking holiday the ideal type of vacation for this part of Italy.
All our guided and self-guided Amalfi Coast walking tours will introduce you to the dreamiest locations and traits of the Sorrentine Peninsula and Capri island – falling cliffs, undulating paths along the coast, scenic views, and rich vegetation.
The coast is especially glorious in the shoulder season when most walking holiday destinations in the Alps still have their paths covered with snow.
We believe that travel should be an experience, not just a vacation. Therefore, we try to make your getaway in Italy as hassle-free as possible. As such, you will be able to brush your everyday problems aside and concentrate on what really matters — the fantastic views of the coast’s unique landscape.
Our walking holidays on the Amalfi Coast are expertly designed and thought out in great detail. You will receive a day-by-day itinerary inside your personalized booklet for the tour and GPS tracks for all your hikes. We also book all accommodations, always trying to find the ideal ones for you.

The Amalfi Coast generally experiences clear, dry, and sunny weather from April until November. Thunderstorms are not common, but if they do occur, they form in the afternoon due to extreme heat. You can avoid unnecessary risks by scheduling hikes early in the day.
Meanwhile, hiking during a light rain is feasible as long as appropriate clothing is worn. In the event of severe weather, we can reschedule or find alternate activities for you.
The ideal time to visit the Amalfi Coast is early spring (April to June) and fall (September to November) due to mild and dry weather. During summer, it might get too hot for a pleasant hike. However, July still offers good conditions earlier in the day. In August, on the other hand, Italians celebrate holidays, so the coast can get pretty busy aside from the high temperatures. We suggest visiting earlier or later. A walking holiday is possible even during winter, but that is also when rainfall is more common.
The accommodations usually provide breakfast options for both vegetarians and vegans. Additionally, finding restaurants that offer similar menus should not be a problem.
Our walking holidays can be appropriate for kids if they are in good enough physical shape, as the paths are not technically demanding. To guarantee their safety and enjoyment, we suggest a minimum age of 8 years for children to join the tours.
Our tours cater to everyone who is not a stranger to physical activity. We adapt the walking distance, elevation gain, and losses to make it less demanding, but you must still not underestimate the challenges. The paths often include steps that can be narrow and steep, sometimes with some exposure, so it might not be enjoyable for people afraid of heights. We suggest you bring hiking poles to help your knees do some of the hard work.
You can prepare for our walking holidays by walking as many stairs as possible and getting used to the strain on your knees. However, if you still feel the hikes will be too challenging, the vast majority can be shortened and adjusted to your fitness level.
Shoes are every hiker’s essential piece of equipment. Although the paths on the Amalfi Coast are largely well-trodden and even include steps, the ground can still be uneven. Therefore, we advise you to wear hiking boots with ankle support, preventing you from injuring yourself in case of fatigue. We also highly recommend bringing hiker poles to take some stress off your legs.
While having a car might provide a slight increase in flexibility and independence, it’s not necessary, as you can mostly take a bus to reach the Amalfi Coast and travel between different locations there. Furthermore, traveling by bus will help you contribute to sustainable tourism by reducing your carbon footprint, and we fully support preserving the environment in its natural state.
The bus connections are good, but if you are visiting when the coast is busy, it can happen that they are full and you have to wait for another. In such cases, if you wish to get started with your hikes early, you can always rely on taxis which we can coordinate for you.
Please note that the Amalfi Coast is a highly sought-after tourist destination during the summer season, and availability for accommodations may be limited. Early booking is crucial to secure the type of housing you prefer, but rest assured that we will always do our best to provide you with the best possible lodging based on your preferences.
Yes, advance booking is highly recommended. The earlier you book, the more options will be available to you. We cannot guarantee availability at the hotels or apartments if you wait until the last minute or during the high season.
Some stages are circular walks that can be left out altogether or shortened. The sections between different towns you will be staying in can be made shorter by taking a bus.
It makes the most sense to land at Naples International Airport and reach the Amalfi Coast by bus or take a train to Salerno, where you can also catch a bus. Road connections are also great, so renting a car or driving your own is always an option.
Our tours are well-organized, and the Amalfi Coast is easy to navigate, so a guide is generally not required. You will have all the necessary information at your disposal through our handout and can enjoy the independence of a self-guided holiday.
However, if you prefer to have a guide, please let us know, and we will make the necessary arrangements for you.
