Full description
Your walking tour begins at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, which is the main water reserve in the province of Malaga. Learn from your guide about the history of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes. This canyon, carved by the Guadalhorce River, is at the center of the province. The path is about 3 kilometers long and less than 1 meter wide. It hangs 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River. You will test your nerve on this high-up adventure. The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro included building a pathway for maintaining the channel. The path is known as El Caminito del Rey (the little pathway of the king) because it was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII.

Love the trip. The guide was very enthusiastic and shared his knowledge about the place. The van driver was good and prompt and even picked us from the trekking end location saving us a trip back. Had a language issue with the driver as he didn’t speak English but managed it in spite of it. Would highly recommend this for anyone if you are willing to spend 2-3 hours on outdoor trekking for 7km.

It was an early morning start but we were picked up by a very friendly guide called Anna and taken on a comfortable coach. With lots of scenery to enjoy on the way and interesting local info from our guide in English & Spanish. It does take a while to get to and from the actual Caminito by foot but that's understandable as this is a natural attraction. Everything was explained by Anna, who was just lovely. Nearby if we needed her but also left us to explore. The walk it self was spectacular. A little scary at times but very safe and secure. They have done a great job setting this up and allowing us to access such a place of natural beauty. It's not really for those with walking problems or fear of heights but if you can manage it, go for it, it's well worth it!

The hike was great. Definitely our highlight of the vacation and is really recommended to everyone. We had great weather and the landscape was very varied. Anna our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. She speaks several languages fluently and gave us information on the bus trip in German, English and Spanish. I think we were 34 people. The bus was very clean, comfortable and air conditioned. On the hike itself, we had a second guide, Laura (she was also super personable). Only note: There were 3 places where the bus stopped to pick up guests (Motril, Torrox and Torre del Mar). We had made the effort to drive to the meeting point in Motril - nothing of the other meeting points could be read on GetyourGuide. Since we had a holiday home in Málaga, Torre del Mar was of course much closer and we would have saved ourselves a lot of time early in the morning.
