The Amalfi Coast stretches 50km from Sorrento to Salerno and is one of the most breath-taking coastlines in Europe. Steep terraces full of scented lemon groves fall sheer into a deep blue Mediterranean Sea; whitewashed houses cling precariously to unforgiving slopes while sea and sky merge in one vast blue horizon. Colourful towns are pasted onto the steep slopes and have a history dating back 100’s of years.
This trek takes in all the spectacular views of the coastline that you could wish for, but in addition the route leaves the coast to stay in villages whose way of life remains as they were before the area was touched by tourism. Some days wander over the flanks of the high mountains which provide a perfect backdrop to the stunning coastline.
