Experience the real “Slow Italy” and step back in time
As seen in
Sacred walks are secular moderate/easy walks following ancient routes, visiting hidden hermitages, chapels, churches and Abbeys in three of the stunningly wild and beautiful National Parks of Abruzzo, central Italy.
You will be accompanied by Italian & English guides, and get a rare chance to lead Italian Haflinger ponies, who will be carrying all our supplies to our overnight camp in the Majella National Park.
Your nine-day journey in Abruzzo has been designed to give you a taste of all the best that Abruzzo has to offer, and let you experience a relatively unknown and very unchanged part of Italy.
Each day you will get to visit different sacred sites, travel through ancient forests and deep gorges, and experience an area still very untouched by tourism. You will learn about the history of the unique sacred places and the extraordinary lives of the reclusive monks and hermits who resided in them.
Discover Hidden Italy
At our secluded and picturesque camp you will get to experience traditional Abruzzese food and wine around a fire, whilst sitting under the unpolluted ink black sky, full of bright shining stars.
Your accommodation has all been specially chosen for its uniqueness, character, position and view.
Sacred Walks are for anyone of any age, as long as they are fit and able to walk in mountainous areas.
Any walking day will not exceed 10 kilometres or 6 hours
This was a wonderful walking holiday with delicious food to sustain us! I loved the ancient places that we visited, hermitages, chapels, oratories, ancient villages, all located in such beautiful landscapes.
I had an absolutely wonderful holiday!
The guides have a passion for and an extensive knowledge of Abruzzo which means that you get to see some places that you would be unlikely to discover on your own.
The scenery is magnificent, you feel you can breath more easily in the vast open spaces and the silence is truly ‘golden’.
