Full description
In the heart of the province of Málaga, and within the Los Gaitanes Gorge Natural Site, you will find the impressive gorge formed by the Guadalhorce River when crossing the limestones of the Sierra Huma. Vertical walls of 300 meters tall make a spectacular photograph in a unique environment. 

The route is linear and begins at the North Access in the Ardales area and ends at the South Access in the Álora area. The route is 8 kilometers and approximately 4 kilometers is access and exit trails and approximately 3.5 kilometers is the Caminito del Rey route.

The Caminito del Rey is divided between the first section of 600 meters of footbridges in the first gorge and 1.5 kilometers of forest trails called the Valle del Hoyo and the second section of 900 meters of footbridges in the second gorge, which is where the balcony with the glass floor and the suspension bridge over the river are.

After some impediments to reach the meeting point with the guide because the road was cut by the southern access, we arrived in time to make this incredible tour with breathtaking views. Perhaps warning that you have to arrive through Ardales would be of great help for future travelers. Otherwise everything very well. Easy to make and the guide very enjoyable

We really enjoyed the tour! The landscape and the view were beautiful and time flies :) Our guide was super nice and told us a lot about the history and the events, both in Spanish and in English. We found it just a little overpriced, although we were still very happy to have done it :)

The trip was amazing with a such beautiful landscapes. I think I've seen this for the first time in my life. I definitely recommend this activity. Also the walking distance was perfect - not too short, not too long. Only one thing I didn't like as much was that the bus which can get you back to the entry wasn't for free or it could be included in the whole cost.
