Full description

Enjoy an enchanting nature and historical hike along El Caminito del Rey (The King's Path) alongside an expert guide. See dramatic landscapes and learn about the history of the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes Canyon. Meet your guide at the Reception of the Hotel La Garganta, at El Chorro gorge. Once the group is formed (max 30 persons per guide), head to the entrance with the shuttle bus with your guide. Cross the 3km-long footbridge built along the walls of the gorge, inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

Feel a thrill as you reach heights of up to 101 meters and other sections where the width is just 1 meter. Arrive at the south entrance where you parked your car at the end of the walk, and relax at the bar.

We stayed at the hotel La Garganta from where we left by shuttle bus! This is ideal and at the end of the tour, you can easily walk back to the hotel! Breathtakingly very beautiful also think that the end of October is ideal to go!… We had a small group and a super guide, who knew a lot about the origin of the camenito and the flora and fauna, he also spoke very well intelligible English N

Great tour, if you don't mind trudging behind each other with a group of 40 to 50 people. And if there are also other groups, a few hundred men. Out of high season it is probably easier to drive to la Garganta and buy a ticket and a bus trip to the north entrance and walk on your own. Very nice guide who speaks good English and tells fun facts about the trail. The route is fantastically beautiful. Impressive gorge and as far as I'm concerned the construction of the old trail. So, biting through the crowds a bit, but then it is recommended!

We completed this amazing tour of the Camanito Del Ray with tour guide Pablo who was absolutely fantastic. He made the day fun and interesting with his regular injection if humour. He is a credit to the company The tour is well organised, accounting for lots of people and ensuring that everyone is safe and comfortable. The tour blew us away with its breathtaking scenery and amazing architecture and history. We would love to repeat our experience sometime in the future.
