Aerial Mountain Hike
Located approx 1.5 hours from Marbella the Gorge Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, also known as the Camino del Rey, is a natural beauty spot and a great hike for nature lovers and adrenaline junkies alike.
The gorge has been formed by the construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro and inaugurated by King Alfonso X111 in 1921, thus the name “Path of the King”.
The vertical walls and gorge are now lined with a renovated pathway and footbridge. The full hike is around 8km long, and with its steep drops it is not for those who suffer from vertigo but most certainly a must-do for any thrillseekers out there! There is also a super little restaurant to enjoy a post-hike chilled beer and delight in your accomplishments.
You will be collected by your Chauffeur driver at your residence and taken to meet your guide at the entrance to the Gorge. Your Private Guide will inform you in detail along the way of the history of the area and the creation and renovations of the route itself. If you opt to hike in the morning then completing the experience with lunch is advised or if it is the afternoon then perhaps a little Spanish merienda will work well before heading back to Marbella to relax before your dinner plans.
