Overview

Highlights

  • Join a guide for this unique tour and learn the history, anecdotes and little curiosities of a route that runs between two gorges, canyons and a valley
  • Walk in the air over 100 meters above the river and find out just how important this path is to the history of Málaga
  • See one of the most impressive landscapes of the Málaga mountain range

Description

Prepare to walk what was once the most dangerous footbridge in the world with a tour guide! The El Caminito del Rey path, all of which was renovated in 2015 and now offers a new, secure path and footbridge, stretches across a gorge and promises incredible views and pathways less than a meter wide in some places. Are you brave enough for this must-see in Málaga?

Located in one of the most spectacular landscapes of the Málaga mountain range, the Caminito del Rey route is one of the most exciting natural attractions in Andalusia.

Bring a lot of water, slip on your hiking shoes and join your guide to brave the renovated walkways. Wind your way Indiana Jones style along the once death-defying pathway and through Los Gaitanes and El Chorro gorges - and learn how they built the route that King Alfonso XIII inaugurated in 1921.

The Caminito del Rey route stretches in one direction, from north to south. Opt to either walk back or take a shuttle bus and rest your weary feet.

The caminito is one of the most amazing hikes in all of Europe. Our guide Janet made the experience even more enjoyable with some excellent and interesting explanation of the history of the route.
