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 so you can purchase breakfast in a local restaurant offering plenty of typical local products and delicacies.

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.

Amazing place to visit and we are so glad we did it. Only issue was the fact that we had many different languages on our trip so the guide did the talk to the English speakers en route on the coach and we were then left to walk it alone. I’m pretty sure it would’ve been better walking it with the guide telling you things as you go as opposed to trying to remember all that was said whilst on the coach. If English speaking I’d consider a different trip. If Spanish, German or French speaking it’s perfect for you.

The coach was very comfortable the guide gave a little talk on the way to our destination on the orange growing here. Quick stop for the loo then drive onto the destination the queues were not to bad we opted to go at our own pace which was great to be able to stop and take in this breath taking gorge. Unfortunately it is a bit rushed at the end to get a drink before you are bustled back on to the bus for the homewards trip. It was well worth the money for the destination alone would certainly recommend it to others. Sadly I forgot my hat on the bus at the end

Breathtaking. Wonderful landscapes. Walk about 7,500 kms but no hills, relatively flat, just a few steps twice but nothing too bad. Very stable walkways. Walking not too fast even if you can't stop all the time so as not to cause "traffic jams", but achievable with a minimum of form. Very nice. Corresponds well to the photos
