Adventure Holidays for Families in Andalucia - Camino Del Rey Re-Opening

Adventure holidays for families should be fun, safe and enjoyable 

Just one hours drive North from Malaga and ten minutes drive from  Rocabella Villas, is The Kings Pathway (Camino Del Rey), one of the most popular adventure holiday attractions for climbing and trekking enthusiasts in the region. El Camino del Rey is a walkway, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge of El Chorro. Built at the start of the 20th century as a commercial access route,   the walkway was later used by King Alfonso XIII in 1921 to inaugurate the Guadalhorce dam.

Today, the crumbling state of the walkway, combined with the spectacular canyon scenery provides for an adventurous, once in a lifetime experience. In recent years a head cam video capturing this experience became famous on the social video sharing site www.youtube.com taken by a young climber who completed the route without safety equipment. Rocabella has always advised that this experience  is one that should always be carried out under supervision of a professional guide and with the correct safety equipment. 

Adventure Holidays for Families comes to El Chorro with 2015 Public Re opening 

In 2011 the Andalucian municipality announced the planned restoration of the Kings Pathway, to be completed by 2015 as part of an investment programme in making this part of region more accessible to tourists. This exciting investment programme will transform the tour into a safer, family friendly adventure holiday experience without losing any of the magnificent scenery and photography opportunities.
