If you are looking for an amazing experience along with spectacular views, come with us to visit the breathtaking path of El Caminito del Rey (The King’s Little Pathway). This 8-hour shared tour is run every Friday departing from a centralized location in Malaga. This path is about 3 kilometers long, has areas of less than 1-meter wide and hangs about 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River. The path goes along vertical walls and a footbridge over the gorge on the same waterway.
The tour leaves the departure pickup point at 08.45 am on a bus bound for El Caminito del Rey. On arrival at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam — the main water reserve in Malaga province — your guide will tell you all about the history of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes Natural Area.Carved by the River Guadalhorce, Desfiladero de los Gaitanes gorge is a canyon in the center of the province. The northern access to the gorge is found at the Guadalhorce reservoirs, while the southern access lies at El Chorro.The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro involved the building of a path for maintaining the channel. The path became known as El Caminito del Rey or ‘The King’s Little Pathway’ for being opened by King Alfonso XIII. The path has been recently restored and traces the vertical rock walls and a suspended footbridge across the gorge. This shared group tour is limited to a maximum of 50 travelers per departure.
