Weeklong Trip Exploring The Amalfi Coast and Cities
The Amalfi Coast is definitely one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe; an intriguing mix with a rich cultural heritage and a stunning natural environment. The blue waters of the Mediterranean are dominated here by the Europe’s steepest coastline, rising up to almost 4,500 feet.
Besides the dramatic rocky cliffs you’ll encounter on this trip, you’ll also see the rich tapestry of human labor that over the generations has transformed the steep mountain slopes into a series of terraced landscapes covered with lemon groves and vineyards. Nearby are charming villages, chapels and other sites of cultural interest scattered across the hills. It’s a dramatic coastline offering wonderful views, with an ever-changing environment as you paddle from destination to destination.
The smell of rosemary and citrus trees fills the air, fields of multicolored roses overwhelm the eyes and sandy beaches await your bare feet. The Amalfi Coast offers an extraordinary palette of colors, with deep azure skies, white limestone cliffs, deep blue seas, and bright citrus orchards lit by the dazzling Mediterranean sun. This intoxicating sensual feast inspires a celebration, and is a reminder of the goodness of life itself.
Paddling along the coastline of Amalfi offers you a unique way to experience this blend of nature and the age-old architecture of the region like no other. Highlights include stops in the amazing ‘Fjord’ of Furore (‘Furor’), in the charming fishing village of Cetara, and on the isolated beaches around beautiful Positano.
On this rich and inspired kayaking adventure you will discover why the Amalfi Coast has become Italy's most famous coastline, and that it takes only a little effort to get ‘off the beaten track’. At only a few hundred meters away from the crowds by traveling by water, you will find yourself surrounded by nature. On this tour we take you beyond the tourist strewn beaches, to more remote ones as we paddle a coast rich with history and natural wonders to our next destination. At night we find ourselves in the charming comfort of a boutique hotel, a glass of wine in hand complimenting a delicious Mediterranean style meal as we share stories of the day!
We’ll make a first stop on a small beach with a fresh water source, and then continue towards Vietri sul Mare, famous for its ceramics, where we can make a short ‘biscuit stop’ (a drink and a snack). We’ll then paddle around the ‘Due Fratelli’, two isolated rocky islands which are the symbol of Vietri. Those who want can opt to paddle towards Salerno. We will have a beautiful view on the city & the mountain scenery behind it from the red light house. We can even opt to go ashore at the beach of Santa Teresa, only a few steps away from the beautiful historical centre.We will have a picnic lunch on a nice beach between Vietri and Cetara and then we paddle back to our hotel, where we still have some time for a swim or a drink on the beach, or just some relaxation. Those who want can go and get their aperitivo in the beautiful small hamlet of Erchie, a favorite among the local kayakers. In the evening we go out for dinner together in a nice restaurant in the medieval town centre of Cetara. Accommodation: Hotel**** in Cetara – Meals included: 1 breakfast, 1 picnic lunch, 1 dinner
