Overview

Caminito del Rey tour from Malaga.

The trip.

In this Caminito del Rey tour from Malaga in a small group you will discover one of the most beautiful gorges in the world. Departing from Malaga city center in our van (50 minutes drive) we will discover the Guadalhorce valley, a unique valley in the province specialized in the production of citrus trees. We will ascend and cross the mountains of Malaga and some white villages.

Once in Ardales, we will get in the Natural Park, where you can enjoy the views of the Guadalhorce lake, the olive and almond trees plantation in a hilly landscape full of windmills.

The hike.

Once in the parking, we will start the Caminito del Rey hike (8 kms) crossing the tunnel and we will get into the forest. We have 1,5 km until the entry of the oficial area and the first gorge. Once in the check in area we have to put on the helmets and we get into the Gaitanejos gorge. You will be amazed by this narrow gorge and by the beautiful orange colours of the limestone. We will stop in some spots to discover the history and the wild life of the natural park.

Once finished the first gorge we will get into a beautiful valley. The views from the valley are beautiful with some stunning view points to the next gorge. Once in the forest we will do a relaxing picnic with local products at one side of the kings path.

We are facing the last part of the valley and aproaching the second and even more beautiful gorge. In Los Gaitanes gorge, the kings walkway is breathtaking due to the vertical views. We will discover some geologic phenomenon, some fossils and some spectacular views until we get into the suspension bridge. Here you will feel like floating in the air suspended 120 meters over the river.

The way back.

We still have to cross the last part over El Chorro reservoir and hike until El Chorro village, where we will get the shuttle bus to come back to the starting point and then come back to Malaga in the van.

We had a nice tour, Alfonso was extremely friendly and the places are amazing ! Even though the paths are easy and the whole experience is not a long one in terms of distance walked, don't overestimate your fitness level.

Don't be afraid! Just do it!

We went to the Caminito del Rey with Alfonso. It was an AMAZING experience. If you are thinking about it, but you aren't sure... I think you should do it. We have a healthy concern about heights and we were fine. There is something to hold on to the whole way. Alfonso is very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the area. He even shares restaurant recommendations! He is a wonderful host and we highly recommend this experience. There might be nothing in the world like it!
