Caminito del Rey
Roughly an hour from Malaga, El Caminito del Rey or ‘The King’s Pathway’ is an 8-kilometre walkway suspended 100 metres above the Guadalhorce river in El Chorro. The history of the structure dates back to 1905 when it was opened by King Alfonso XIII and used as a route for workers to transport materials between two local power plants. In its current state after intensive refurbishment it is now one of the most thrilling hiking trails in existence, suspending those brave enough above the El Chorro gorge providing unparalleled views of the natural beauty surrounding it. The winner of numerous national and international awards including the Europa Nostra Award for heritage and conservation the Caminito del Rey promises to be a truly unique, rewarding and breath-taking experience that will stay with your students for years to come.
Please note circuits of the Caminito del Rey take approximately 5 hours and suitable footwear and attire is required.
