Malaga’s iconic El Caminito del Rey closes for two weeks due to coronavirus mobility restrictions—but virtual tour possible

Caminito Del Rey

ONE of Malaga’s most spectacular and unique hiking trails, the iconic Caminito del Rey, will be closed to the public from today for at least two weeks.

Due to the recently approved new measures by the Junta to contain the spread of coronavirus, the route, once considered the most dangerous in the world, has been forced to close.


According to the Diputacion de Malaga, the new measures, which come into force today, see the perimeter closure of all Andalucian municipalities ‘making visits to this site impossible’.

The provincial government and the company responsible for managing the Caminito have agreed to close until November 24.

Visitors who have already obtained their ticket to visit the Caminito del Rey on the days affected by the closure may request the return or exchange of the ticket through the website www.caminitodelrey.info.

In the last five years the iconic route has been visited by more than 1.5 million people.

You can still however enjoy The Caminito del Rey from the comfort of your sofa in three different ways:

1. By enjoying 360º views of 40 different stunning points on the trail.

Check out the glass balcony railway tunnels, the view point from the railway wall or hanging footbridge.

2. Watch a series of videos explaining the history behind the Hydroelectric Power complex, the reason the trail was built, as well as the proposal to be included on the World Heritage List, amongst other footage.

3. Viral visit, follow the arrow and enjoy animal and plant life from a unique stand point, enjoy the dizzy heights whilst sitting in the safety of your living room.
