An alternative view
Mountain Experience are still working in partnership with Mont Blanc Adventures and Explore! On our most recent trip to the Amalfi coast Nigel was delighted to be guiding renowned artist Neil Pittaway.
The other team members were astounded with the speed and precision with which Neil was producing watercolours and sketches of the views during the week!
You can see a lot more of Neil’s work here …. https://www.njpittaway.co.uk/index.html along with news of his forthcoming exhibitions and links to other articles about his work.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on another trip, Neil!
The (almost) post Covid return of overseas adventures!
The world is constantly changing, there’s no doubt about that! During the many international lockdowns, Mountain Experience have wrapped up their UK operations and relocated to Southern Spain. Nigel will still continue to work with select companies and has recently enjoyed a fabulous return to The Amalfi Coast. The weather was really changeable and his Explore! walking group enjoyed sleet, snow, rain, fog and sun. Of course lots of great food, wine, gelato and limoncello was enjoyed too!
The 2019 Expeditions have started!
What better way to kick off the 2019 overseas season than to return to our second home here on the Amalfi Coast?
The Chestnut wood is being harvested, giving us the chance to see the hard working mules making it all possible.
The wild flowers and herbs are simply stunning and grow wherever you look.
We’ve experienced some wet weather, but even that has a silver lining with the appearance of several Fire Salamanders that are usually so secretive. There are lots of smaller creatures too, if you can spot them.
And of course, what better way to finish the day than to eat a freshly cooked, wood fired, handmade pizza and some fantastic organic wine?
As ever, Mountain Experience are absolutely delighted to be back in Amalfi. This year’s trip has seen some bad weather, but that hasn’t deterred us in the slightest.
Fantastic food, excellent walks, good company and organic wines. The Amalfi coast keeps on delivering! There’s plenty of sun forecast for next week, so roll on the good times.
Arrivederci Amalfi. See you next year!
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!
Final week in Amalfi brings the season to a close
Mountain Experience have had a fantastic month in Amalfi this year. The fourth week was a great success with the usual fantastic fare of food and drink, calorie free ice cream and cake, and more than enough wine, beer and limoncello!
This year’s autumn expedition will be in Chamonix and Lake Como areas so we won’t be returning to Amalfi until next year, but of course, that will make the return all the more sweeter!
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?
All good things come to an end
What a great first week of this year’s Amalfi Walks. Mountain Experience, working with Explore! and Mont Blanc Adventures had a week of fantastic scenery, great food and great company.
The weather flirted with rain, but was never so bad that it got in the way. Next week should see more sun and just as much fun. Bring it on!
Team Ultimo finish this year’s season for Mountain Experience on the Amalfi coast.
Mountain Experience finished this year’s expedition season with a final week on the beautiful Amalfi coast. Just south of Naples, the region has stunning scenery, ancient monuments and world class food. Team Ultimo indulged in all of that! We were really fortunate with the weather, just missing the heavy rain wherever we went. Occasionally the views were wreathed in cloud, but without fail, would always open up for us at some stage.
What a great way to end the year’s travels!
Another great week finishes on the Amalfi coast for Team Quindici!
In conjunction with Explore! Mountain Experience have finished another great week of walking on the Amalfi Coast.
Team Quindici enjoyed great weather, fantastic food and stunning scenery, all finished off with a spell on the beach, gelato or a few glasses of wine. If that wasn’t enough, there were goats, left handed squirrels and mysterious small piles of pebbles thrown into the mix for good measure. A brilliant week!
