If you are looking for an incredible experience with spectacular views, visit the breathtaking trail of El Caminito del Rey, "the king's trail". Walk along the narrow suspension bridge over the Guadalhorce River. Make the most of your stay with an 8-hour trip from convenient one-way pickup points in central Costa del Sol. The tour includes round-trip transport by air-conditioned coach, entrance fees and guided visit to El Caminito del Rey and assistance from your multilingual guide/driver. The excursion is limited to a group of 50 people maximum.
After pickup from your Málaga or Costa del Sol hotel, travel to the starting point of your walking tour, the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, the main water reserve in the province of Málaga.
Your guide will explain all about the history of the natural area of Desfiladero de los Gaitanes. The Gorge Desfiladero de los Gaitanes is a canyon carved out by the Guadalhorce River. Access to the north is via the Guadalhorce Reservoir, and access to the south is via El Chorro. The construction of a canal from the reservoirs north of El Chorro was carried out with a path for the maintenance of the canal. This path is known as El Caminito del Rey, "the king's path", because it was originally created by King Alfonso XIII.
At around 3 km long, the path is around 1 meter wide and hangs over 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River, earning it a reputation as one of the most dangerous roads in the world. It has been recently renovated and extends along the vertical walls in a walkway above the gorge.
Accompanied by your guide, you can walk the spectacular trail, enjoying spectacular views of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes gorge and the Guadalhorce River below.
At the end of your tour, you will be driven back to your hotel.
