If when the holidays arrive, you don’t need to decide between the traditional “sea or mountain”, because the hiking route along Amalfi, the Island of Capri and Sorrento is your ideal trip. It offers you an experience that perfectly combines the charm of the sea with that of the large and impressive mountains that you will get to know along the way.

On all of your routes, during the 8 days that this journey with such diverse landscapes lasts, you will be surprised with its delightful gastronomy and the charm of its ancient paths, such as the famous ‘Path of the Gods’.

In your wake, you will find cliffs and colourful villages; breath-taking views over the Mediterranean; multiple lighthouses, extensive promenades and many other wonders that will leave you some great memories.

You will start your route in Amalfi, at the end of the Gulf of Salerno; you can climb the famous Tre Calli Mountain and enjoy the elegance of the Isle of Capri and Positano, in contrast to the simplicity and harmony of Praiano.

The end point will be in Sorrento, where we recommend you visit Piazza Lauro and, of course, try its Mediterranean food after taking a walk through its picturesque old town.

At the end of your tour you will be able to take another of our routes along the Amalfi coast or even join one of our other Italian hiking trails.

Route

What is the best time of year to travel on this route?

This route is available between April and October. From May to June, and the beginning of autumn, are the best times to explore the hiking trail along Amalfi, the Isle of Capri and Sorrento.

If you decide to do this trip in July or August, we recommend starting the walks very early in the morning so that you can avoid the high summer temperatures throughout the day.

Also, since July, August and September coincide with the holiday season in Italy, it is considered high season. For this reason, we suggest you to make the reservation well in advance, as all accommodation is subject to availability.

How do I get to the starting point?

You can get to Amalfi from Naples Airport. From there, we suggest you take a bus that departs from outside the terminal and goes to Sorrento. It will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

You can also go to Sorrento, from where we suggest you take a bus to Amalfi, which takes around 1 hour and a half. 

Once you finish your route in Sorrento, the best option is to return by taking a bus to Naples.

At both the beginning and end of your route, we can book you a private transfer. If you wish, let us know in time and we will be happy to help you.

Can I travel alone?

Yes, you can. On most of our hiking trails we offer accommodation in single rooms if the traveller requires it. Single rooms have a special surcharge and are subject to availability.

Please note that for security reasons, some of the routes are not suitable for solo use.

This hiking trail is suitable for solo travellers, so you won't have any problems if you're on your own.

When can I start my trail?

You can start your hiking trail any day of the year according to the specifications of your itinerary.

Does this route have an accompanying guide?

All our hiking trails are completed in self-guided mode. Thus, each traveller has the opportunity to advance on their own and at their own pace for each of the routes marked during the full route itinerary.

What does the full route itinerary contain?

The route's complete itinerary is a guide we prepare for you with information on the maps, routes and sights of each hiking route.

You will receive it by email one month before starting the trip along with all the documentation of the trip: accommodation reservations, luggage transfers, among others.

The kilometres of travel and the journey times indicated for our hiking trips are reference values.

It will depend on each walker the fulfilment of these times and distances, according to the speed at which they advance.

 

Advice

What should I consider to prepare physically?

Both sedentary people and those who regularly exercise should physically prepare for any of our hiking trails. 

Sedentary people can start with moderate activity and continue progressively. They should start by taking small 20-minute walks, two or three times a week. It is suggested to increase the time until you reach walk about 4 or 5 kilometres every hour.

People with regular physical activity can start by walking from 45 to 60 minutes a day and increase the amount of time and kilometres they travel in the same span of time.

Generally, it is recommended to start training about three months before starting the route. 

How far in advance should I make the reservation?

There is no minimum number of days in advance to book, although on certain dates the occupancy of the accommodation is higher, especially in high season. 

Therefore, in order to guarantee availability in the best accommodation, we suggest you book as much in advance as possible, so that we can meet all your needs. 

What clothes and hiking equipment are indispensable?

For any of our routes we suggest you to bring the following items: light and fast drying clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers, sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, a pair of shoes suitable for hiking, trekking poles, a pair of shoes to rest in, a jacket that doesn't take up much space and a bottle to carry water.

Depending on the time of year in which you make the route, these items may vary. 

Remember that with Santiago Ways, you have included a baggage transfer service between stages, so we will take your backpack from one accommodation to another so that you only worry about walking (maximum 1 piece of 20 kg per person).

For this reason, we suggest you prepare a second backpack, much smaller, that you can carry with you every day with water, sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, documents, some food and cash. 

How does the baggage transfer work between stages?

Every day, at 8:00 am, you must bring your luggage, properly labelled, to the reception. One of our carriers will pick it up and take it to the place where you are going to stay on your next stage.

Delivery time varies according to the distance between stages and the carrier's delivery route. Usually, delivery is made before 4 p.m.

Please note that on many routes you sleep more than one night in the same accommodation, so the baggage transfer will not be necessary in these cases.

Should I take out travel insurance?

To make any of our hiking trails it is advisable to have travel insurance with all the necessary coverage, especially emergency evacuation and medical care.

To do this, we suggest you take out the Travel Assistance Insurance and Cancellation Insurance that we offer you in Santiago Ways. If you want more information about it, we will be happy to answer your questions.
