Full description

Enjoy an enchanting nature and historical hike along El Caminito del Rey (The King's Path) alongside an expert guide. See dramatic landscapes and learn about the history of the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes Canyon. Meet your guide at the Reception of the Hotel La Garganta, at El Chorro gorge. Once the group is formed (max 30 persons per guide), head to the entrance with the shuttle bus with your guide. Cross the 3km-long footbridge built along the walls of the gorge, inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

Feel a thrill as you reach heights of up to 101 meters and other sections where the width is just 1 meter. Arrive at the south entrance where you parked your car at the end of the walk, and relax at the bar.

If you travel by train from Malaga, the station is 150 feet (50 meters) away from the hotel reception.

The view is amazing, really unique! Trip is not too long and does not require extreme sportivity. Parking spots are very limited at the south entrance/exit straight at the hotel, but there is a bigger parking spot right behind the bridge over the lake. Trees will cover your car in shadow to not heat it fully up ;)

This option is the easiest way to visit El Caminito del Rey. It's very difficult to get there on your own. Not a fan of group outings, we resigned ourselves in view of the delays to have a single ticket and in view of the testimonies of people having to turn around arriving in front of the entrance. In addition, our guide Pablo was perfect, attentive, simple and funny. These landscapes are worth the detour

Great overall. Would recommend anyone from the cruises who did not get a ticket on board who buy from this website and this tour. I loved it. I would also suggest take a good snack (nothing that will melt of course) but maybe like a good energy bar that satisfies your hungry in the 2.5 hour walk. :) We had energy bars made with dates form the ship. And two water bottles. Hydrate before and during. Take a hat to avoid sun in your face but one that can fit the helmet.
