Cilento and Amalfi Coast cycling vacation, Italy

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Activity:
Few vacations 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 travelers, 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.

In depth story review

“The photos, TV and films never do justice to just how beautiful the Amalfi coast is in reality. I think it must be one of the most beautiful places on the planet.”

Reviewed on 08 Apr 2018 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


It was all memorable, but the highlight was probably visiting Pioppi, home of the Mediterranean diet, followed by one of the best lunches I have ever had, at a
little local restaurant with one of the finest views on the planet.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Just go, it's a great tour.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I went out of season, early April, when restaurants were very quiet. I think it definitely helps to spread the tourist impact over a wider part of the year. Biking
on the Amalfi coast is definitely a good option, as the traffic there is very severe.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


One of the best tours I have been on. Excellent balance of cycling, culture and food, it's practically a gastronomic tour. The guide, Paolo, was one of the best I
have encountered. The scenery was spectacular. A very memorable vacation.
