How Much Will it Cost
We booked our tickets on the official website https://reservas.caminitodelrey.info/?lang=en and recommend anyone visiting Spain to do the same. A general ticket costs €10 and a guided tour costs €18.
How to Get There
The walkway is located 60 kilometres away from Málaga and we hired a cab from our homestay to get there. Travelling via the suburban trains is also a convenient and more economical way to reach the path. There are two trains daily at 10:05 a.m. (destination Ronda) and 4:48 p.m. (destination Sevilla Santa Justa) from Malaga's Maria Zambrano station to El Chorro. While going back you can take any of the three trains leaving at 9:33 a.m., 3:03 p.m. and 6:03 p.m.from El Chorro to Málaga. The train journey is 40 minutes long and costs €6.
Irrespective of the route you take, you’ll need to take a 1.5-kilometre walk through a cave to reach the beginning of the path. It is best to take a guided tour which takes you through the cave to the main entrance.
