Full Description

  • If you would like a personalized tour with quality information from an expert guide, we offer you this guided tour through Caminito del Rey on a small group, just english speaking, with transportation included from Malaga.
  • The Gaitanes Gorge contains the unique "King's Walkway", located in El Chorro Natural Park which provides the perfect setting for a exciting walkable experience with unbelievable landscapes, encompassing a rocky plateau 1200 m above sea level.
  • The estimated time needed to go across the whole route is 3-4 hours.
  • The total length of the route is 7.7 km, divided into 4.8 km long access ways and 2.9 km the way called as the real King's Walkway. The most famous part of the trail, is the 2.9 km King's Walkway, from the entrance control to the exit control point, which comprises 1.5 km long boardwalks (located at the gorges), and 1.4 km long paths or forest walkways between the two gorges. Usually the group takes a tunnel at the entrance, saving 1 km walking through the forest, so the total lengh of this excursion is 6.7 km.
  • Caminito del Rey was re-opened to the public on the 28th of March 2015 and it is part of a spectacular natural beauty spot in Malaga countryside.
  • The boardwalks and a hanging footbridge that stands at 105 metres height, as well as steep walls, make many visitors feel inevitably dizzy, but in general people get used quickly and enjoy the feeling from the beginning.
  • There is not risk at all, but you must be aware of the strong impression this place might make on you. The path is hazardous because of the heights and its very narrow parts. This is why it is so attractive.
  • Discover this natural treasure with lots of histories told by the expert guide and have the chance to walk the walkway suspended 100 metres high!

What's included?

  • Entrance ticket to Caminito del Rey.
  • Transportation. Pick up and drop off from Malaga and Torremolinos.
  • Expert and fun Tour Guide.
  • Insurance.

What's NOT included?

  • It can be closed because of the weather (rain, strong wind).
  • Optional Lunch & Breakfast (32€), increases additional time of the tour in 2 hours.
  • Kids over 8 years of age are welcome, always accompanied by a responsible adult. Kids under 8 years old are not allowed to enter.

"We had a lovely day at the Caminito del Rey. Our guide Pablo was brilliant, he was friendly and informative with lots of little stories to keep things interesting. The group was a great size and we never felt hurried along. The walk is beautiful and really worth it if you want to see the country around Malaga."

"Very good experience! Guide was excellent "
★★★★★, Canada, 25 September 2017
"The tour was great and I highly recommend it. The only area for improvement is that the pick-up location should be more clear (the email said it was at the tourist info centre but the actual location was on the side of the street about 250m away from the tourist information centre). There was a bit of confusion for our pick-up and I would recommend having a sign or having a vehicle with the company name/logo on it to help travellers identify the pick-up location. Still a great tour that I highly recommend. Jose is a very informative guide. Thank you!"
★★★★★, United States, 21 September 2017
"The tour was amazing and so much more than I could have imagined. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. Since he hiked the Caminito del Rey before the new platforms were installed he has some great stories about what the hike used to be like. I recommend doing the hike that includes breakfast and lunch, it's worth it! This small tour will be much more enjoyable than the large group tours that are run by the cruise ship companies! I have not included a photo because the truth is, no matter how amazing the photo, it will never do the Caminito del Rey justice, it's just to beautiful. You have to see it with your own eyes. While there is a path, hike is not a term that should be used lightly here. If you are not healthy enough for physical activity or are not bringing shoes with traction that lace up (hiking shoes or tennis shoes), you should not attempt this hike; other than that I recommend it to everyone.

"We had a great time with Jose an a very memorable one as well taking photos for us couples at all his recommended sites. He was well prepared with his iPad and old photos of the kings visit to the site and I admire him. He also related sites to scenes of movies shot in the area with Frank Sinatra. Well done Jose. He even gave us a taste of the carob tree pods where they are used to make chocolate for warmer countries. Well done Jose, you added a highlight to the awesome caminito day trip for us not just the gorges but your lively character for us to take away for our life. "

"Me and my son had a great trip to Caminito Del Rey Thursday the 3. of august. What a fantastic nature alle the way, and José is a very dedicated tour guide, with a fantastic knowledge about the area. We will definitely choose Malaga trips again when we come back to Malaga. Best regards Jesper and Milo Danstrom"
★★★★★, Denmark, 4 August 2017
"We had a very great experience. It was the most beautiful trip! And we were very happy to have a guide with us that could tell us about the place and point out the things we needed to put attention to. It was really hot yesterday and he was kind to look after us to see if we had enough water. Another thing was that we were very happy to be picked up by the bus after the trip. At that point we were so tired so it would have been exhausting to wait for public transportation. Unfortunately the aircon was broken."

"We had Jose for the trip and he was absolutely excellent! Gave an incredible amount of knowledge on geology, history, Caminito del Rey in films and was really friendly and funny. He made sure we were looked after on what was a really hot day to do the walk (35 Celsius) and overall was a great trip. I highly recommend booking with Malaga Trips especially with Jose as your guide for Caminito Del Rey, it really made the walk more interesting with his knowledge. "

★★★★★, United Kingdom, 26 February 2017
"From the moment we were picked up from our hotel to when we got back the level of attentiveness and information was amazing without being overpowering. It felt like you were part of a family outing in which you were made very welcome. This trip is definitely worth every cent as it takes away the stress of transport, meal stops and getting through the busy queues. Jose was always willing to impart his knowledge throughout the walk including the geology, vegetation and his own experiences of the walk before the safe path was built! But he was also keen to discuss his views on football, politics, SPANISH Olive Oil and fatherhood (he had just had his 2nd child). My teenage son even enjoyed it and that's saying something!!"
★★★★★, Denmark, 19 February 2017
"The tour was great, and with the guide we had knowing so much about how and why the area looks today, it was just good. We also had the benefit beeing a small group, and with guide on allowed to was just this group. By this we had a lot of time just to enjoin the walk true the great Caminito del Rey."
★★★★★, Denmark, 3 January 2017
"I had an excellent experience with Malaga Trips: they helped us book everything even if it was super-last minute (just before New Year's). Nicolas was very helpful and Cristina, our Caminito del Rey guide, was very very nice and super-knowledgeable. "
★★★★★, Finland, 1 December 2016
"Everything went as planned before. The visit to el Caminito was great and the views better that you expected beforehand. Our guide made the trip perfect. He used time to explain small details with wery interesting way. He took care from those who seemed to be a bit afraid. He had also knowledge from the old route/ own experience. I wish to see you soon again."
★★★★, Finland, 18 October 2016
"Our guide Jose Padilla was really excellent and gave us much information about history and nature of Caminito. "
