CAMINITO DEL REY AND BODEGAS

  PÉREZ HIDALGO

Take an exciting trip through the El Chorro gorge along the Caminito del Rey, ending the tour with a visit to the winery and wine tasting. This exceptional excursion operates every Thursday of the year.

After the walk, it’s time to regain strength. 4 Tapas of local gastronomy will be served at a bar, a few steps away from the Exit gate. Group size of max. 35 people.

Start your day with pick-up at different points of the Costa del Sol or Malaga and depart for Ardales. Coffee Stop along the way at a local restaurant with plenty of typical local products.

Eventually arrive at the northern access point of the Caminito del Rey. The group will then walk through a small tunnel to reach the natural paths that leads to the entrance checkpoint of the Gorges. At that point, you’ll receive a helmet together with the safety instructions. Your guide will also join you to give you further explanations of what will be found during the trek but also many hints about the history of this peculiar construction.

The Gorge, called Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, is a natural pass across the hills that separate the Malaga coastline from the inlands. The River Guadalhorce flows at the bottom of the gorges, after having passed through the reservoirs. El Chorro means “the Spurt”: your guide will explain why

El Caminito de Rey is nowadays a rebuilt path that stretches between two gorges, canyons and a large valley, along pathways or boardwalks. It is safe and comfortable to walk as most of the path is flat or downhill. The route goes in one direction, downwards from the north to the south.

Your bus will be waiting near the exit point and will drive to the village of Alora and stop at the wine cellar of Perez Hidalgo. This is an award-winning bodega were we will taste some wine together with Spanish tortilla, olives and snacks. Once when this lovely wine tasting is over, we travel back to Costa del Sol and you will be dropped off at your pickup point.
