Full description

Prepare for a day of adventure as you walk the Caminito del Rey along the walls of the El Chorro gorge in Málaga. Follow a guide on a safe trail leading to the footbridge that runs through the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes.

Begin your day with a pickup from one of the many spots in Málaga and travel to Ardales. You will make a short stop in Ardales, a white village, so you can purchase breakfast in a this local area before to start the activity.

Return to the bus and continue until you reach the northern access point of the Caminito del Rey. Walk through a small long tunnel to reach the natural paths that lead to the entrance checkpoint of the gorges. Then, receive a helmet and listen to the safety instructions. Learn what to expect during the trek and the guide will accompany you at the end of the group to answer your questions along the way while you enjoy the experience.

Pass by the Gorge of the Gaitanes, a natural pass across the hills that separates the Malaga coastline from the islands with the River Guadalhorce flowing at the bottom.

Embark on a safe and comfortable walk surrounded by breathtaking scenery. El Caminito del Rey, after many years of total abandonment, is now a rebuilt path that stretches between 2 gorges and a large valley.

After finishing the downhill trail from north to south, reach the exit point where your bus awaits. Once the group is on board the bus, return to Costa del Sol and be dropped off at your pickup point.

Very good experience. The guide did not talk to the whole group for much of the tour however me and my partner weren’t too far away from the guide and so we would periodically ask her questions and she was more than helpful. She was also more than willing to take photos. There also some very good food places near the end of the walk

Communication and pick up for this day trip was great. The bus ride was comfy to Caminito del Rey and there was also a coffee stop before we started the walk. Views were breathtaking on this walk and there was plenty of time for photos. The walk itself was a total of 2.5 hours. A section of walk was affected by rockfall so we did an out and back walk rather than the usual circuit - had to cross the scary bridge twice but totally worth it. The view from the bridge is amazing. Our guide, Jorge, was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Had a really great day trip. Highly recommended!

With beautiful weather in winter, it is the best choice, it's hard to imagine in summer, but maybe someone likes heat. It is a pity that part of the route was closed due to damage to the path. The route is not too difficult, a few short ascents. However, the path on the wall is impressive, I recommend it.
