Was a fantastic experience and certainly cured my fear of heights! The walk is around 5km with partly gravel tracks, boardwalks with fencing & handrails and quite a few steps. The scenery, flora, fauna and wildlife is impressive as was the very knowledgeable and caring guide. Bucket list experience not to be missed.

Practical: In the high season book early when it is still nice and cool or after 3 pm because then you walk in the shade. We went early. Parked the car at the hotel because that is the start and end station for us. If you don't have a guide, bring cash for the bus (now euro 2.50 pp and mouth mask) The bus makes 1 stop at the new parking lot and then it continues close to the entrance and step out. You sign up at the hotel and the guide will pick us up in the lobby. Francisco was our guide and he speaks good english. He said for the walking route you need at least 1 liter pp. We got a water bottle as complimentary. He is informative, helpful and he knows a lot about the walking route. He has been doing this for a number of years and you can tell he still enjoys it. Lucky for us the group was not big and he took the time for everyone. So it's not just walking on the bridge and done. Guide is really recommended or audio. Our teens loved it too!

Nice route, 100% secure. I usually get dizzy but no apprehension or feeling dizzy the whole way thanks to the structure. No difficulties on the course. Take a large bottle of water in the summer as it is very hot. Circuit made in the morning, in August but few people. For regulars of hikes and treks, this circuit will probably have less interest. Our guide PABLO was very very nice. His good humor is communicative! Mother and daughter trip from France
