The King’s Little Pathway called the Caminito del Rey is a cliff-side walk hanging 100m above the awe-inspiring El Chorro Gorge

It´s not for the faint of heart with rocks of several hundred meters towering above you.

It is a great experience and definitely worth the trip in spite of the many tourists, as well as all the trouble of getting tickets for the entrance.

The Caminito del Rey pathway was originally built, because the El Chorro Hydroelectric Company needed access to facilitate the passage of maintenance workers in 1905

The Caminito del Rey was restored in 2014 and has re-opened to the public after being closed for 15 years. It is now completely safe and unproblematic to walk, especially on the famous boardwalk section, where it is only one metre wide in some places.

The old walkway – the original King´s Little Pathway – can be seen just below.

Unfortunately, the tickets sell out very early on the official site

When that happens there are 3 other ways of getting tickets for the Caminito del Rey:

1) Book through an agency (which is generally a bit more expensive but then gets you a hassle free ticket), e.g.: Guided tour by GetYourGuide or Tickets by GetYourGuide

2) Buy unsold tickets, which are released for sale 4 days before on the official Caminito del Rey site.

3) Buy tickets by the entrance of the Caminito del Rey (get there on a working day early in the morning and expect ½-1 hour of waiting time)

We hope that one of these methods allow you to get tickets for The King´s Little Pathway – the Caminito del Rey.
