Arrivederci Amalfi. See you next year!

The beautiful view from high above the Bay of Naples. You can see Ravello, Maiori and of course Amalfi.
Stunning mountain scenery and the Med below.

Well it’s time to say goodbye to Amalfi for 2017, but we will definitely be returning in 2018.

Although the dates are not yet confirmed, we can say that Mountain Experience will team up with Mont Blanc Adventures and Explore! to lead on their justifiable bestseller, Amalfi Coast Walks. We will be there for three or four weeks sometime between mid April and the end of May and would love to see some of our readers there.

Cake for breakfast, incredibly priced organic wine and calorie free gelato! (One of those things isn’t actually true). What’s not to get excited about!

This year’s first trip to Italy

Mountain Experience, working with Mont Blanc Adventures and Explore have enjoyed yet another fantastic few weeks in the Amalfi area. Great walks, fantastic food and brilliant company, combined with good old fashioned Italian hospitality meant that each week was going to be a success. As ever, quality clients who formed great teams were the icing on the cake. We are already planning trips there for the Autumn!

Visits to Capri and the thought provoking Villa Lysis, Tiberius’ Palace and the Faraglioni; rugged walks in Valle de Ferriere Forest Reserve with it’s extraordinary cliff scenery and wild flowers; swimming in the¬†Mediterranean; the stunning Walk of the Gods to up market Positano; Pompeii and Vesuvius: A fantastic week!

Team Snakedance in the Iron Valley

Such a great week and what great team. Close encounters with Tommy the dog and others, lizards, snakes and more flowers than you could shake a stick at. Missed ferries and lost bags. There was even an Edwardian gentleman!

Team Snakedance had a great week of walking and even more great fun with Mountain Experience and Explore! on the Amalfi coast. See you next year?
