2. From Costa del Sol & Málaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour
Prepare for a day of adventure as you walk the Caminito del Rey along the walls of the El Chorro gorge in Málaga. Follow a guide on a safe trail leading to the footbridge that runs through the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes.
Begin your day with a pickup from one of the many spots in Málaga and travel to Ardales. Make a stop at the Venta El Cruce, a local restaurant offering plenty of typical local products and delicacies that you can buy at your own expense.
Return to the bus and continue until you reach the northern access point of the Caminito del Rey. Walk through a small long tunnel to reach the natural paths that lead to the entrance checkpoint of the gorges.
Then, receive a helmet and listen to the safety instructions. Learn what to expect during the trek and get an insight into the history of this peculiar construction from your guide.
Pass by the Gorge of the Gaitanes, a natural pass across the hills that separates the Malaga coastline from the islands with the River Guadalhorce flowing at the bottom. El Chorro means the spurt and your guide will explain why.
Embark on a safe and comfortable walk surrounded by breathtaking scenery. El Caminito del Rey, after many years of total abandonment, is now a rebuilt path that stretches between 2 gorges and a large valley.
After finishing the downhill trail from north to south, reach the exit point where your bus awaits. Once the group is on board the bus, return to Costa del Sol and be dropped off at your pickup point.
