Full description

Step on to the renovated walkway of wooden boardwalks and make your way through the magnificent Los Gaitanes Gorge. Marvel at the rugged rock formations surrounding you and take in the spectacular views of the Guadalhorce River. Summon up the courage to cross the new suspension bridge 100 meters above the El Chorro Gorge.

Caminito del Rey is amazing, however definitely not for those who are afraid of heights. It is one of the best things I did during my time in Spain. The tour was excellent. Peter was a great guide and explained all about the region and the walk. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Absolutely stunning. Highly recommended. Our guide Reyes was fantastic and knew all sorts of fun facts and was good fun. I'd advise taking some swimming stuff as there was a chance to go in the lake after but I could only paddle as I didn't take my costume. Well worth the money and certainly not to be missed. Thanks guys!!

Awesome hike - but typical Spanish organization

First things first: the hike itself is amazing! You get great views of the gorge and its surroundings. Meanwhile phoenix vultures are circling over your head. Be sure to bring enough water en put on sunscreen because it gets very hot! Now, the organization itself leaves quite a bit to be desired. Our tickets were apparently reserved via a local tourist office and apparently these were the "cheap" tickets. This meant we had to wait half an hour to get in. You're just standing there in the scorching heat. Our guide was also late to the pickup point because he was stuck in traffic. Then on the way to Ardales, he says this is typical Seville traffic... Then why not leave your house earlier so you make it in time? Either way: great hike, bad organization. You might be better off driving there yourself if you can get a ticket.
