Vía Ferrata of the Caminito del Rey

Experience the Caminito del Rey in a RA-DI-CAL way.

Vía Ferrata in Málaga

There are via ferratas and via ferratas, that’s for sure. But few things can match the feeling of trekking the peaks and valleys of Caminito del Rey, and the breathtaking view you have when you reach the top… 

We do have to admit, however: although it is called via ferrata del Caminito del Rey, it does not exactly run through it, but you will be able to experience it in the same way. 

Shall we tell you about it?

This via ferrata through the gorge of the Caminito del Rey has it all, doesn’t it? Alright, we’ll tell you about it step by step -if you dare to try it: 

This is the Caminito del Rey via ferrata

We’ll pick you up at a meeting point of your choice (Málaga, Nerja or El Chorro) where we’ll introduce ourselves and set off to the Gaitanes Gorge, where our adventure begins. 

Before we start hiking, we’ll do some icebreakers – we’ll talk about safety, what we’re going to encounter, and, most importantly, how to get the most out of a via ferrata that has so much to offer and if you don’t believe us, take a look for yourself: 

One of the features of this via ferrata is that you are going to experience the authentic sensation of verticality by having to climb up steel steps along walls. We will gradually gain height until we reach the super zip line: you will slide for no less than 35 meters towards the other side of the mountain. It’s just way too much fun! 

Once on the other side, with our adrenaline still pumping, we continue climbing and cross two bridges: a Tibetan bridge and a monkey bridge, upon which you will find yourself walking above the void with only emptiness below. But don’t worry, this via ferrata is 100% safe and we are expert guides when it comes to risk management. 

When we reach the summit, we will be delighted with jaw dropping vistas, mainly during the Caminito del Rey section that you will get to know in a unique, fun and exciting way. The Las Encantadas reservoir and the beautiful scenery that surrounds you will be the perfect match. You will end up using all of your cell phone’s battery taking a ton of pictures to remember.

On the way back we will hike for about 40 minutes and we will thoroughly learn about the flora and fauna of the area, as well as the cave-houses of the climbers who live there. When we get back to the van we will enjoy a fantastic picnic with locally produced snacks and we will take you back to the meeting point and that afternoon. That same day (or the next day at the latest) we will send you all the photos and videos that we took with our GoPro; it’s essential to have an experience like this well documented.

Lo que dicen de la experiencia

Yes, it is preferable. It is a medium level via ferrata and it is advisable that, in addition to being in good shape, you have had previous experiences with via ferratas before.

They are unavoidable on this route, so we don’t advise that you go if you suffer from extreme vertigo. However, we are experts in risk management, so we will help you along every step of the way to ensure you have no problems.

Comfortable clothes to do the via ferrata, suitable footwear. Although we provide food and drink for the eco-picnic, you are welcome to bring any other snacks or beverages you need. We especially recommend you bring something extra to drink – the water we provide is a half liter plastic water bottle. In short: if you can bring your own drink, all the better (and if it’s in a sustainable container, that would be peeeeerfect).
