Full description

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.

IMPORTANT, I had scheduled the exc at 8:55 a.m. and the bus appeared at 10 a.m. The day before by mail confirmed the schedule 8.55 hrs. No one informed us that they would be 1 hour late. As for the excursion, it was very interesting. I only bother the high high temperature. The guide made the exc slowly, which allowed us to recover. Only that he left us as soon as the tour ended and he only told us to continue 10/15 blocks and that we would arrive at the parking lot, without accompanying us. If what is a bit wrong are the last few steps at the end of the route; They are very small and little spaced. But that is not a problem of yours but of the infrastructure of the place.

Superb outing, I recommend. The landscapes are magnificent, we also had the chance to see the animals in their environment. The short stopover in Ardales was also nice. The village is pretty and we were able to walk around the small market and go up to visit the church. The only downside during the outing is that we did not have the small box with the earphone to hear our guide. This means that we have to pay the price of a guided tour but without a guide..

The tour through the Carmenito is really great, but the visit to Ardales can also be greatly reduced or omitted. But what really bothered us was the return journey: we stopped at different stops to let people off. The return trip took 3 hours! The entire day trip did not take 8 hours but 10.5 hours, we were only back at 8:30 p.m.
