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).
