Experience the Amalfi Coast and island of Ischia by foot and kayak

The Amalfi Coast and surrounding islands are sublime, and this walking tour is a perfect way to get the most of your visit. From the sea to the mountains, this tour connects you with the landscapes that make this one of the must-see parts of Italy.

This walking tour takes you right atop the shimmering sea, where you’ll kayak along the Amalfi Coast off of Sorrento. Admire the pretty town, paddle into deep caves, and pass by ancient Roman ruins and villas on the shoreline. There’s no view of Sorrento like the one you get from the water!

Next up is a hike on the Ieranto Bay trail, surrounded by nature and sweeping ocean views. Dip into the welcoming water to cool off, and you may never want to get out.

If that’s not perfect enough, you’ll hike up the Path of the Gods, picnicking high on the trail with a view that extends all the way to Capri.

Then you’ll cruise to Ischia, where a cliff full of swooping peregrine falcons awaits your exploration. From the sea to the sky, this walking tour is simply incredible!
