From Costa del Sol or Málaga: Caminito del Rey with Tapas

1. From Costa del Sol or Málaga: Caminito del Rey with Tapas

Discover the scenic beauty of the Caminito del Rey trail on a guided excursion from Málaga or from selected areas of the Costa del Sol. Traverse the El Chorro Gorge and enjoy some tapas after the hike. Start your day with pickup by bus from different points of the Costa del Sol or Málaga and depart for Ardales. Stop for breakfast (not included) along the way at a local restaurant with plenty of typical local products. Finally, arrive at the northern access point of the Caminito del Rey. The group will then walk through a small and quite long tunnel to reach the natural paths that leads to the entrance check point of the Gorge. At that point, you'll receive a helmet together with the safety instructions. Your guide will also join you to give you further explanations of what will be found during the trek but also many hints about the history of this peculiar construction. The Gorge, called Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, is a natural pass across the hills that separate the Málaga coastline from the inlands. The River Guadalhorce flows at the bottom of the gorges, after having passed through the reservoirs. El Chorro means "the Spurt": your guide will explain why. El Caminito del Rey is nowadays a rebuilt path that stretches between two gorges, canyons and a large valley, along pathways or boardwalks. It is safe and comfortable to walk as most of the path is flat or downhill. The route goes in one direction, downwards from the north to the south.  Your bus will be waiting near the exit point, but before driving back to the Costa del Sol, you will try some local tapas from a small bar close by. Once this light lunch is over, travel back to Costa del Sol and be dropped off at your pickup point.

Excellent day out and a lovely walk. Alex our guide was a lovely man but did not keep us as a group going around the walk like others did. Real shame not to have had the information as we walked around but non the less, this is a great day trip. Tapas was nice at the end of the tour and drinks were very reasonable.
