Malaga: Nature Quad Bike Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
Caminto Del Rel is an exceptional place to visit. I visited with my elderly in laws and young kids. The view of the gorge was outstanding. I had never done anyting like this before. It is a 3 hour hike which ends in a long walk to the exit where our bus was waiting. I felt that last kilometer was more gruelling for seniors than the King's path itself. I would recommend to carry water and some snacks and wear comfortable walking shoes. Once you are on the path there is not return, as the starting point and the finishing point are in opposite directions. There are rest rooms at the start. My children had fun and my in-laws despite their advanced age finished the path and were delighted with the expedition. The sights are invigorating and absolutely beautiful. It was definitely different from visiting monuments that Spain is usually famous for. It is a hidden gem of a place.
The trip was a great way to see this amazing spot. Pick up was easy. Susanna was a lovely guide. Explaining the history on the bus was a good use of time. Because she was explaining in three languages it was difficult to get all the history in. Along the trail we heard other tours talking about the Nazi connection and the railroad link. If there’s not time to do this on the bus maybe while we are waiting at the restaurant. Going to the restaurant after the Caminito Del Ray was not a highlight for us as the trip home took so long, almost 3 hours because we had to drop everyone off along the way. I think going straight home would have been better.
The bus picked us up in Malaga. After a small breakfast we started the walking (a bit later then expected, because of the the long queues). Once you enter the route, you walk on our own, no guide. You already got some info in the bus and it’s very relaxing to be able to walk at your own pace. The bus trip back was quick (maybe because of the nap :) ) and we arrived back in Malaga by 14:45
I love trips to the nature, but this was something more. The views thruog the path ar astonishing. The remains of the old path are telling the story of danger and strong will to build something. You can feal this danger on every step of your walk. I loved it an wish to return once more with the option to visit the lake.
Great experience,our guide Shirley was very nice,fluent in 4 languages and informative.this trip is really worth taking
