Are you travelling with a group of four people or more to the Caminito del Rey? Get your guide for the Caminito del Rey!

The online reservation system for the Caminito del Rey sells out pretty fast. Even though many hotels can help, you may already have your accomodation organised.

Once the places start to fill up, it can be almost impossible to reserve if your group is more than 4 people (and sometimes even 2 is impossible!)

With this in mind, a guided visit for your group is the solution. Have a look at some options from Get Your Guide using the below links. Many of these companies can cater for large groups for 30 or more people, some offer private tours and others an inclusive day trip with lunch and tapas!

2022 Caminito del Rey tickets

I have had quite a few emails from people asking me why they can’t book 2022 caminito del Rey tickets (currently we are in September 2021) or in many cases any entry tickets more than a month or so in advance at any time of year.

The reason for this is that the online reservation system for the Caminito del Rey normally only opens up ticket availability for a period of around 8 weeks in advance. For example, in the second week of July 2021 tickets were made available for the months of August and September and it should be safe to assume that tickets for October and November 2021 will be made available sometime around the second week of September.

Working forwards, tickets for the Caminito del Rey in 2022 should become available in the second week of November for (December 2021 and January 2022).

No tickets for the Caminito left online? No problem (hopefully)

So you have been to the official website to book your tickets for the Caminito del Rey and to your dismay the dates you want are full (agotado). No tickets for the Caminito left online?…..Not to worry as there are two other ways that you can get your ticket.

Get your Guide

If the reservation system is full and you don’t want to use the suggestions further down this page, have a look at these links for guided visits to the Caminito del Rey from Get Your Guide. This is an excellent option for larger groups.


Firstly, stay in a local hotel such as the Posada del Conde or the Garganta Complex. These are the two hotels nearest to the walk that can get the tickets for you. (When you make the booking, make sure that you add a message to say that you are specifically booking because you want to walk the Caminito del Rey.) If the hotels are full then other hotels found on booking.com can help as well such as the fantastic Hotel Magdalena closer to Antequera.

Secondly,  Just turn up and buy your ticket at the gate. (10 euros each and you can pay by card as well as cash). THIS DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK BUT MANY PEOPLE HAVE COMMENTED THAT THEY WERE ALLOWED TO PAY AT THE GATE.

Latest comments are that there are just 50 tickets available at the gate and people are turning up to queue as early as 07:30 am!

Thirdly, If you are staying in malaga go to a train station and see if you can get the combined ticket…. Click here to read more about the combined ticket!

Remember that the entrance for the Caminito del Rey is at the reservoirs/kings chair/el kiosko side… The north entrance. Right now you cannot start the walk from the El Chorro (south) side…

This is because there are a percentage of tickets (6% of the 1100 people allowed in daily.) When you can enter depends on how many people turn up for each allocated time slot. The maximum amount of people that enter every half an hour is 60 people so if you are there to buy your ticket at 11am and there are only 45 people checking in then you will be allowed to go along with that group… If there are 60 people you will have to wait for the next group in 30 minutes time.

Speaking with the manager there she told me that very rarely do people have to wait for more than an hour and on this day she had sold 120 entries at the gate and the people went in almost straight away but, she did say…”Try to get here as early as possible for the morning entries and weekends or holidays can be more complicated sometimes meaning people get turned away”

Even if you do have to wait a while, it really isn’t a hardship to sit and admire tha amazing scenery at the entrance to the Caminito del Rey!
