Caminito del Rey - Hiking on the famous Kings Path

Date: Thursday, 5th October 2017

A guided tour over a safe path, through a spectacular gorge with the most amazing rock formations

Caminito del ReyBefore the restoration, the Caminito was famous for being considered the most dangerous path in the world, but can now be walked safely. A perfectly secured Boardwalk, with railings and viewing platforms, leads through the vast canyon between the Gaitanejo Reservoir of Ardales and the village of El Chorro. This path was built as a maintenance walkway for the hydroelectric power plant. At its opening in 1921, King Alfonso XIII  supposedly found  this way so fascinating that he walked it himself.

We begin our tour at the Ardales Reservoir from where we walk to the entrance of the walkway. At the entrance we get helmets and a short explanation of the Caminito. The tour is technically really quite easy, but you should not be afraid of heights, because despite safety precautions, we are looking down a huge precipice.
