RETREAT HIGHLIGHTS 

A Specially Curated Itinerary of Guided Mountain Excursions -

Come face-to-face with the majesty of nature and cultivate deep ties with the land, winding along a dynamic circuit of renowned and lesser-traversed trails beneath the pristine coastal air. Designed together with experienced local hiking experts, each path will grant an intimate and insightful introduction to Amalfi’s time-honoured heritage. From retracing routes once marked by spice, grain and textile merchants, to paths leading to prominent Greek and Roman ancient sites, trickling waterfalls, terraces of sweet-scented lemon groves and quaint rural villages. Heart-stopping panoramas composed of soaring cliffs, magnificent Mediterranean mountains and sapphire blue waters await eager explorers at each peak.

*Please note, you will be accompanied by dedicated hiking guides at all times and the difficulty level of the trails will increase moderately each day.

Pause Place Consciousness-Based Workshops -

Balance Holidays welcomes Katie Abbott as the leading expert on this programme. Identified for her work in activating the energies of love, essence of presence and connection to step inside, find clarity in the self and recognise your inner potential. Deepen and expand your true being, shifting states of consciousness in an array of workshops that bring breathwork, sound, gentle movement and more together.
