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 path that leads to the entrance checkpoint 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.

Caminito del Rey Private Tour from Costa del Sol

2. Caminito del Rey Private Tour from Costa del Sol

Start the day with a convenient pickup from your hotel, followed by a relaxing drive out of the city to Ardales. Listen to your friendly guide as they share their fascinating insight into the history of the region as you pass through small towns and farmlands. Arrive at the Caminito del Rey, gather your trekking gear and prepare to embark on a journey that's bursting with scenery, geology, and history. Enter the gorge and slowly make your way along a wooden pathway that's attached to sheer rock walls, giving you a unique perspective that's unlike any other hiking experience. If you're brave enough, look down into the canyon at the striking green water and thriving plant life that covers its floor, as your guide enlightens you to its history. Your journey takes you past the Gaitanejos and Gaitanes gorges and by the Hoyo Valley, with plenty of time to stop and take in the views. Cross over a hanging bridge and feel a serious adrenaline rush before completing your adventure with a bus ride from Alora to Ardales, then drop-off back at your hotel.

Our pick up arrived ahead of schedule in Malaga, though we did wait 10 minutes after our departure time for some latecomers.Our coach was modern and comfortable and our guide Alex was informative and entertaining on the journey up to the starting point.We had a bit of a wait for helmets for our group as several groups had arrived at the same time but we were on the move again probably within 15 minutes.The walk itself is at your own pace with Alex bringing up the rear of the group.The sights and scenery along the route are stunning.Arriving at the hotel at the end of the walk, the organisation was excellent.We said we were part of Alex's group and were told to take a seat and the tapas lunch would be served shortly.We ordered drinks and took them outside to sit in the sun and one of the waitresses came out to tell us when the food was ready.The food itself was excellent and more than we probably expected.All in all a brilliant day.

Excelente tour. Muy recomendable. El paseo fue hermoso, salvo el tiempo de llegada a Caminito del Rey es muy largo porque el bus recoge a viajeros durante todo el camino hasta llegar a destino.

Tour guide was brilliant, the tour itself and transportation was perfect it went very smoothly, I would definitely recommend to friends/family.

The tour was canceled due to bad weather. I got good info and was able to go the next day instead.

An absolute beauty to the eyes! Breathtaking hike with the loss of mountain life! A must see
