Since 2015 the thrill seeking boardwalks of the Caminito del Rey has been restored and open to the public. Only allowing 1.100 visitors per day, it’s essential to pre-book your ticket online if you don’t want to miss out on this adventure. The walk starts at the Northern entrance. After parking the car it’s a 20 minute walk to the entrance with a part through a 100 meter narrow tunnel. The entrance guards will not allow you to pass through any earlier than your entry time, which results in around 80 people entering at the same time. Before you start the exciting journey, you get to wear a helmet and receive a short introduction.
The first part is across the boardwalks along the steep cliff. If you drop anything… it’s gone. The second part is an easy stroll through forest, rocks, well just mainland. And the third part takes you along more exciting boardwalks, the glass floor with views of the canyon below and the suspension bridge.
The Caminito del Rey is definitely a must do while in the area. It’s absolutely safe but still thrilling to be able to walk at such heights.
Oh, the moment you think you’ve reached the ending, it’s still a half hour walk downhill to the Southern gate and bus stop. Which gave us more of a sweat than we expected. The whole experience will be around 2-3 hours and perfect to combine with a day trip to Ronda.
