Full description
Discover a landscape of extraordinary beauty just north of Málaga on a half-day excursion to the walkway of the Caminito del Rey. Encounter a footbridge over 3 kilometers in length, built on the walls of the Gaitanes Gorge (Desfiladero de los Gaitanes). Experience one of the most beautiful natural enclaves in the province at a canyon excavated by the River Guadalhorce. During some stretches, the incredible route reaches heights of up to 105 meters. Although the best-known stretch of the route is the footbridge, the total journey of the Caminito del Rey is 7.7 kilometers. You have to arrive at the start of the path by foot to follow the linear path in a single direction descending from north to south. Join a Spanish-speaking guide who will accompany you throughout the tour, and hear anecdotes and learn all the curiosities surrounding the incredible location and construction of the walkway.

    This was a great experience. The views are breathtaking and would definitely do it again. Having a guide was nice at the start of the tour as we could learn more details about the trail and the canyons. He mainly spoke Spanish,but he then summarized it for us in English as well,which was more than fine. Later on we separated from him as he remained behind with the last people of the group,so basically we didn't learn much more about the last part of the trail. Would recommend the trip/ trail to anyone!!

    This 3-hour wall/hike is an absolutely spectacular and unique experience! It’s like a small Grand Canyon only 1 hours drive from Malaga or 2 hours from Sevilla. Can be easily done as a day-trip or, if preferred, made into an overnight by staying in Antequera or any of the surrounding white washed villages.

    Good fun, not too strenuous for a 77 year old.

    Very enjoyable, excellent and friendly guide. My only gripe is to find at the other end when boarding the return bus we had to pay 1.50 euro for the return trip. Having spent £130 I thought that was not fair. Surely you could have included the return trip in the cost?
