Description of Cilento and Amalfi Coast cycling holiday, Italy

Amalfi is a well known holiday destination – but cycling even a few minutes away from the popular coastal strip reveals quite a different world of unspoiled landscapes and traditional villages, where life has changed little over the decades. This Cilento and Amalfi Coast cycling holiday takes you to inland canyons, the abandoned village of San Severino, the Greco-Roman city of Paestum and Acciaroli – one of Ernest Hemingway’s favourite villages.
 
We never stray too far from the coast, making the most of the panoramic views across the bay – and the opportunity for a lunchtime dip in the sea. There are a few steep climbs – but you’ll be rewarded at the top with views across the whole peninsula and whitewashed clifftop villages – before freewheeling back down through fragrant lemon groves and ancient Greek settlements. One night is spent in a characteristic “agriturismo” – a converted farmhouse, and along the way we’ll dine at traditional restaurants, making the most of the abundant seafood and superb traditional cuisine.
 
Please note: It is possible to hire electric bikes for this holiday.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cilento and Amalfi Coast cycling holiday, Italy

Environment

Activity:
Few holidays have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a cycling trip. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem in certain places and therefore our trip leaders encourage clients to stick to advised routes in order to minimise this. We do believe in leaving no more than footprints (or tyre tracks!) although this tour actively encourages guests to talk to local people, visit local cafes and restaurants, use markets to purchase traditional gifts and crafts and get a real impression of the Amalfi Coast.

Water:
Water is a really important issue with cycling trips and whilst we must stay hydrated, it is also vital that we have a system for providing clean water without causing lots of waste with plastic bottles. We suggest that instead of repeatedly buying bottled water, guests should re-fill a singular bottle. Our guides can advise where to fill them and where to recycle litter.

UK Office:
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK Offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Community

Community:
Our aim is to discover for you those places where you can feel and taste the ‘real spirit’ of southern Italy. This tours for real travellers, who seek out both the highlights of a destination and true experiences of local culture in ways that benefit local communities. For example, with food being such a huge aspect of Italian culture, our locally employed tour guides will endeavour to not only recommend the best and lesser known local eateries but to take you to the very source of the food’s production. There will be opportunities to taste and purchase organic oil, wine and mozzarella. Not just a great experience for clients but it celebrates Italian culture and puts money into the local economy.

Group Size:
This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.
