Full description

Spend an entire day enjoying the Caminito del Rey on this day tour. Go for a refreshing swim in the Conde del Guadalhorce Reservoir, stroll along a path in the trees over the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes Gorge, and kayak through calm waters.

Meet your guide in the morning in El Chorro at the Hotel La Garganta. Pick up your picnic box and hop on the bus to travel to the Conde del Guadalhorce Reservoir. Once arriving at the Camping Ardales near the reservoir, take some time to explore the beautiful facilities at the campground.

Next, jump in your kayaks and begin your 2-hour guided kayaking trip. After your kayaking tour ends, cool off with a dip in the reservoir and replenish with a delicious picnic lunch under the pine trees. Board your bus again to head to Caminito del Rey Natural Park.

At Caminito del Rey, meet your official park guide and begin your 7-kilometer trek through the iconic Desfiladero de los Gaitanes Gorge's treetop wooden platforms. From your 100-meter high vantage point, enjoy stunning views of the gorge and its rocks.

Stop to take photos at the glass balcony and as you cross the suspension bridge. While you walk, hear the history of El Chorro, the Costa del Sol, and Caminito del Rey. Return to your bus at the end of your hike and drive back to the meeting point in El Chorro.
