Why you'll love this trip
  • Naples is the perfect place to make discoveries. Perhaps descend below Naples’ streets to discover the famous catacombs, before indulging in a traditional pizza in one Naples' many eateries. Buon appetito!
  • The ancient Roman town of Pompeii has been frozen in time under the shadow of the very volcano which destroyed it, Mount Vesuvius. Explore the vast ruins, including the House of the Faun and the Temple of Apollo, then ascend the volcano and explore hidden sulphuric vents with a specialist volcanology guide.
  • Walk the Path of the Gods along the spectacular Sentiero degli Dei, one of the most scenic trails in the world
  • Descend into the mysterious Valley of the Mills, where the canopy keeps the temperature pleasant throughout the summer months
  • The island of Capri isn't just a lavish retreat for Roman emperors of the past and their modern day equivalents. Powerful cliff faces enclose secluded coves, grottos and spectacular Mediterranean scenery

Is this trip right for you?
  • This hiking trip requires a good level of fitness and health, due to the varied terrain and potentially hot temperatures. Many of the hiking days involve steep hills and lots of steps that you'll need to be able to walk up and down. Walking times vary between three and six hours a day, but the rewards are worth every step.
  • Summer temperatures around the Amalfi Coast can be extreme (up to 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
  • As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is bookable at an additional charge, subject to availability. Please ask your booking agent for more details.

2. A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. The single supplement applies to all nights of your trip and is subject to availability.

Please note that due to the small properties we use in Europe there is only a limited amount of single supplements available per trip departure. If you would like to book a single supplement and enquire about availability please speak to your booking agent.
3. Since the start of Covid-19 access to Mt Vesuvius has become more and more limited due to Covid restrictions. There may be times when it is impossible to secure entry to the hike. If this occurs the activity will be replaced by a “Pasta Experience”,at a local “Pastificio” (pasta factory).
4. This trip has different Start and Finish Point accommodation depending on the time of year - please check the Accommodation section for further details.
5. Accommodation providers on the Amalfi Coast are experiencing unprecedented demand post covid. Therefore it is possible your group may be spilt between nearby hotels. Your tour leader will advise the details of this on day 1 (if your departure is affected).

Hiking and kayaking the Amalfi Coast was amazing. The climbs, the views, and the history that tied into all this, and the fellow hikers, was amazing. I highly recommend this trip. And if you have Giovanni as your guide you’re sure to feel safe, in good hands and educated, all at the same time. I will be going home to flat Perth with less of a fear of heights, and so many plans to try to incorporate the farm to plate Amalfi life. And to keep hiking. Thank you Intrepid and Giovanni for a fabulous trip!

Amalfi Coast is an excellent destination for hikers, and Intrepid offers plenty of time on the trails away from the tourist crowds. Each day was better than the next with stunning views of the sea, Capri, Positano, and Amalfi. Our guide Giovanni was very knowledgeable and ensured we had an excellent opportunity to experience Italian culture, history, food and language. Truly a fantastic trip!

This is an amazing trip! The views in every location are spectacular. While the hikes are hard (especially in the peak of summer), I think anyone with a good base level fitness can do this tour.

The trip was great.. loved our guide Giovanni, itinerary, level of physical activity (very active and diverse), accommodations.. but didn’t like the people on the tour with few exceptions . I was paired with elderly woman who snored and although the situation was eventually resolved , she poisoned the atmosphere.
