Caminito del Rey

The Caminito del Rey (literally, the King’s Little Pathway) is a footpath built along the walls of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes (Gaitanes Gorge), crossing the municipal boundaries of Ardales, Álora and Antequera, in Málaga province. It is a pedestrian walkway of around 2 miles (plus around 3 miles to access the trail), attached to the rocky walls of the inside of a gorge, with sections of around only 3.5 feet wide, suspended up to 345 feet above the river, on almost vertical cliff-faces. It is possible to take guided tours if you book beforehand, and it’s advisable to book tickets a few months in advance, due to the high levels of visitor demand.
