From Málaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour with Bus

1. From Málaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour with Bus

Hike Caminito del Rey, a suspended walkway surrounded by a scenic landscape, with a guide on a trip from Málaga. Along the route, learn the real story behind the construction of this great work of engineering. Hop aboard a bus from Málaga and travel to Ardales. Receive a safety briefing from your guide and strap on your helmets. Start the one-way hike of Caminito del Rey at the North access and make your way to the South access. Pass by mountains that emerged millions of years ago and vertical canyons born by the force of the Guadalhorce River. Listen to stories of adventurers and climbers. Hear about the visit of one of the most powerful men in the history of Spain, King Alfonso XIII. The trail has a length of 4.8 miles (7.7 kilometers) but is a simple walk, especially with your guide keeping you company. At the end of the trail, return to your bus and be driven back to Málaga.

Malaga: Caminito del Rey Path Day Trip with Guide

2. Malaga: Caminito del Rey Path Day Trip with Guide

Choose your closest departure from Costa del Sol and board in an air-conditioned coach. Sit back and relax on the journey to Caminito del Rey. Just 5.6 miles from Caminito del Rey, make a quick stop in the picturesque town of Ardales where you will have free time to visit it at your leisure. Stretch your legs and have a snack before starting the Caminito del Rey hiking trail. Embark on a guided walk along the Caminito del Rey and enjoy views from 328 feet above the Guadalhorce River while learning about the history of the path from your guide. Begin your walking tour at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, the main water reserve in the province of Malaga. Learn about the history of the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes from your local guide. This canyon, carved by the Guadalhorce River, is at the center of the province. Inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII, the path known as El Caminito del Rey (the little pathway of the king) served as a maintenance route for the water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro. See how the length of the pathway is just under 2 miles and is less than 3 feet wide. It hangs 328 feet above the Guadalhorce River, walking along it will test your nerve on this high-up adventure.

What people are saying about Álora

Excellent tour with excellent guides. A young fun tour guide Fran was with us on the bus. He gave us information about the walk itself and the villages we passed along the way. We were then split into 2 groups where i was in a group lead by Ian. Very knowledgeable person who, originally from London, has lived in the area for the past 20+ years and gave us lots of information about the history of the dam, the flora and fauna of the area and how the canyon itself came to exist. Plenty of time after the walk for a rest down, beer or refreshment. Overall the tour took just over 6 hours. If looking for a fun day trip from Malaga with spectacular views, i'd definitely recommend this tour. Greetings from Ireland sláinte

Spectacular area and absolute recommendation! Yes, sometimes you wish you had a little more time to linger and take photos, but many other people also want to see this great experience and the sidewalks are just narrow. The information no toilet for 7.7 km and the fresh weather stressed us out a bit. At this height, the suspension bridge is a challenge to overcome, so you should think about that in advance, there is no turning back. It was great to get there, lots of local information from our tour guide Anna, who spoke very understandable Spanish and English.

Really enjoyed the whole trip from beginning to end. Everything was well organised. Our guide Jose Miguel had great stories and lived near the place. You could really see that he was passionate about it. There was plenty of time to take pictures and the views were amazing. Book in the afternoon so you don't have to walk in the hot sun. It was a once in a lifetime experience!

Geweldig uitzicht, leuke gids, busrit niet te lang. Niet voor mensen die slecht ter been zijn. Anders doen!

The guide was amazing , Jose we enjoyed alot , nice and safe trip
