The famous 'Camino Del Rey' (Kings Pathway).

Not for the faint hearted.


Guided Day Trip from £85 p/p

Just ten minutes drive from the Finca is The Kings Pathway (Camino Del Rey), one of the most popular attractions for adventure enthusiasts and climbers in the region. El Caminito 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 for adventure enthusiasts. This experience is one that should always be carried out under supervision of a professional guide.

  • Professional, experienced guide.
  • Harnesses, helmets and safety equipment.
  • Historical and geological lesson.
  • Picnic lunch and bottled water.

2015 Public Re opening 

In 2011 the Andalucian municipality announced the planned restoration of the Kings Pathway, to be completed by 2015. This exciting investment programme will transform the tour into a safer, family friendly experience without losing any of the magnificent scenery.
