Walking the hair-raising Caminito del Rey or ‘King’s Walkway’ is a bucket list favorite for adventurous hikers – a thrilling 4.8-mile (7.7km) path skirting the edge of the rocky Gaitanes Gorge. This convenient full-day tour includes a private guided hike, hotel pick-up and round-trip transfers from Málaga, plus a delicious Andalusian-style breakfast and lunch.
  • 8-hour King’s Walkway tour from Málaga, including lunch
  • Hike the notorious King’s Walkway, high above the Gaitanes Gorge
  • Enjoy spectacular views over the El Chorro Natural Park
  • Tuck into a delicious breakfast and lunch of Andalusian cuisine
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up, entrance fees and round-trip transport
  • Private tour ensures you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide
Your King’s Walkway adventure begins with pick-up from your Málaga hotel by private vehicle. Before setting out on your hike, stop in the village of Ardales for a traditional Andalusian breakfast – the ideal start to your morning hike.
Then, it’s time to lace up your hiking shoes and set out along the infamous Caminito del Rey or ‘King’s Walking Way’. Follow your guide along the hair-raisingly steep wooden pathway, which hangs from the cliff-side, 328 feet (100 meters) above the Gaitanes Gorge. Learn about the road’s notorious history and it’s recent reconstruction from your guide, and dare to look out over the gorge, spotting the remains of the original road below.
After tackling the 4.8-mile (7.7km) route and admiring the views over the dramatic gorge and the surrounding El Chorro Natural Park, head to a local restaurant to re-fuel. Enjoy an insight into Andalusian cuisine as you tuck into a tasty 2-course lunch and sample an array of regional specialties. After a leisurely lunch, relax on the drive back to Málaga, where your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

This is an amazing tour. The views were absolutely beautiful and Jose, our guide was great. This tour is an easy walk in the beginning and middle, but at the end is a pretty steep grade with stairs. The time flies by and before you know it, you'll be back at the van. You see many people on the trail, but its not crowded. I recommend this tour for anyone traveling in the area....truly worth it!

This walk is unforgettable and easy for most ages and abilities. Jose makes the hike interesting with lots of stories about the history of the area. Lots of time to rest and take pictures. A must do!

This should be on everyones bucket list to do. It used to be the most dangerous walk in the world, but since the paths have been redone it's really really safe and just spectacular. Jose our guide was just the best, he is so knowledgable about the area, flora, fauna and history.
All really fascinating. The breakfast was excellent and a good good way to get to know your fellow walkers in a relaxed cafe.
The walk itself was, in a word amazing. In total you walk almost 8km but certainly didn't feel like it. Jose keeps you informed all along the way with such interesting points that otherwise would go unnoticed. He is an absolute pleasure to be with, we parted as friends.
The lunch at the end of the walk was soooo good, a great way to unwind after the walk. Those who opted out of the lunch missed out on a great experience in a superb terrace restaurant with great views.
This is a small group tour, and after seeing the groups of 50 go past us, we were so glad we chose this tour and not a generic tour.

We had a awesome time. Jose was the best tour guide you can have. He paid attention to detail and made it a truly memorable experience for our family. He made sure that we got back to our cruise ship on time. Gerry R
