Full description
Restored in March 2015, Caminito del Rey, formerly a service road, has now become one of the main tourist destinations in the province of Malaga. The tour is guided, which makes a big difference as the guide explains the history and tells many anecdotes, making the journey very exciting and pleasant. The routes are 7.7 km and 10 km long, which make for approximately 3 hours of pure enjoyment in the beautiful Natural Park of the Gaitanes.

The El Caminito de Rey hike is spectacular the whole way from the Count of Guadalhorce Reservoir to its end at El Chorro Dam. Placed in unique natural surroundings, the path stretches between two gorges, canyons, and a large valley, all along pathways or boardwalks. The route is linear, not circular, and it goes in one direction, downwards from the north to the south. Its beginning is in the Town of Ardales and the end in Álora. The route is almost 8 km lon, and takes from 3-4 hours to be crossed.
