About Sacred Walks
Sacred walks are easy/moderate non religious 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. Sacred Walks are a nine day adventure from Saturday to Sunday in the months of May, June, July, September and October. The walks are for everyone, as long as you are fit and able to walk in the mountains. The tours visit religious sites, where you learn about the history of these unique ancient places, and the people that resided in them.

At my request, Andrew arranged for a customized day adventure focusing on hiking the lovely hills of Abruzzo combined with a bit of sightseeing. It went extremely well. I was most impressed with our host's knowledge of the area; kind personality; and close attention the the safety and needs of the five travelers in our group. 'nuff said....

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. The highlight of the trip for me was the visit to see the frescoes in the oratory at Bonimaco - they are stunning! The three national parks in which we stayed and walked were very different from each other, each with their own distinctive character. The fact that it rained the night we camped didn't impact on the holiday at all, if anything it bonded us as a groups and we felt like great survivors after the storm. The food and wine was predominantly locally grown and was completely delicious. In some ways this holiday was like stepping back in time. The Abruzzo region is completely unspoilt and for me this makes it very attractive. The guides were excellent and it felt a great privilege to have them share their love of the Abruzzo with us. If I could only visit one place in the world for the rest of my life, it wolud be this.

Italy is one of my favourite places to visit and I have enjoyed many holidays there. It was just by chance that I discovered Sacred Walks, but I'm so glad I did. 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'. The walks took in historic villages, hermitages and churches which had amazing frescoes. Everywhere we stayed the welcome was very warm and the food (which, wherever possible, was local to the area) was always delicious - good job it was a walking holiday! If you go independently to Abruzzo you can't fail to be impressed, but if you want to experience all the area has to offer and get all you can from your trip then i would strongly recommend that you go with Sacred Walks.

I was in a pattern of work hard, burn out, go on luxury holiday and repeat. I decided it was time to shake things up and get out of my comfort zone! Along came sacred walks….and sacred it was…to actually disconnect from the outside world and walk in the most beautiful historic landscape with like minded people is a wonderful thing. Andrew and Lorenzo’s passion for this trip is infectious and they have gone to great lengths to ensure that you get a unique and authentic experience. I remember standing in a cave where a hermit had lived for 40 years before becoming pope! Maybe it was the space created to have real conversations with people, maybe it was the beauty or maybe it was just timing but I also met the love of my life that week so thank you sacred walks!

This was my first walking holiday and I loved it. With a group of nine others and two guides we visited fascinating areas of the Abruzzo Mountains. We walked every day and stayed in three unusual places - each one quirky but lovely - a Palazzo B&B in Scanno, an agriturismo farmstead & a restored medieval village previously decimated by earthquake.The food was very Italian and always excellent. One night we camped on a mountain in the cloud and that was fun as well.
