Walk The Amalfi Coast
Join us for an unforgettable experience trekking through Italy’s Amalfi Coast – climb Vesuvius and see Pompeii – 14th to 21st October 2017
Following hot on the heels of our 2016 trek to Spain, we are now already accepting participation in the 2017 overseas trek to Italy. This year’s sponsored trek promises to be the best yet – certainly the most exciting and beautiful. Our ask is the same: we need you to raise a minimum sponsorship donation of €3,000 – all vitally needed funds – and in return we can promise you the experience of a lifetime. Share the company of a band of merry trekkers as you experience Naples, Vesuvius & Herculaneum, Pompeii, Amalfi & Atrani, Ravello, ‘Sentiero degli Dei’, Praiano, Positano and Capri. Transfers, accommodation, food, guides are all included so all you need to do is bring your walking boots and a positive attitude to have some great fun while raising some vital funds for Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.
Your trek will take in a web of ancient pathways along stunning shorelines and cliffs; it will lead you through charming coastal towns and through rustic woodlands; you’ll see the most beautiful villages perched up on craggy peaks as you hike along the stunning “Footpath of the Gods”, and you’ll take in the scenery from the seas as you enjoy several boat trips as well.
Other highlights include the intriguing Valley of the Mills (the location of Europe’s first paper mills, almost a 1000 years old), the spectacular villages of Positano, Atrani and Ravello, a visit and a beautiful loop walk over the island of Capri. And of course beautiful Amalfi itself.
Finally the trek will take in a spectacular detour: a specialist volcano guide will take you and the other trekkers right around the rim of Vesuvius – truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We already have a number of confirmed participants for this trek, so if you would like to get involved this year (even if you just want some more information at this stage), then we recommend that you contact us at your earliest convenience so we can send you a pack and get you started on your fundraising journey.
We look forward to having you join our trek to Italy this year.
