    If you like hiking you may have heard in recent times of the Caminito del Reyenlace (King’s little pathway). It is considered the world’s most dangerous walkway and is pinned over the river Guadalhorce, along the steep walls of Gaitanes gorge, located in the province of Malagaenlace. If you love adventure, adrenaline and don’t feel vertigo, this famous walkway will be reopen to the public on 28th March after a long closure of over a decade. Several walkers died on this pathway and therefore became known worldwide as a deadly pathway. However, 6 million euros have been invested on the refurbishment which has been focused on providing security to walkers. If you wish to experience this itinerary you will have to book online through the Booking Web of Caminito del Reyenlace. Take note that only 400 people can walk at the same time across the pathway and on the first week the website received over 30.000 bookings.

    Although in recent months the Caminito del Rey has been a focus on all news about hiking in Spainenlace, the country has 32.000 approved hiking itineraries for travellers. A total of 60.000 kilometres, spread across the entire territory, are perfect for enjoying nature and the most diverse landscapes of our country. You will find pathways in main Preserved Areas and National Parks in Spainenlace, like Picos de Europa (Asturias, Cantabria and León); there are also 27 short pathways to visit with the family, 2 longs pathways and 4 high mountain routes. Hiking with snowshoes is another beautiful experience as well as the famous Ruta del Cares.

    What about the Camino de Santiagoenlace? (Way of St. James) Located in the north of Spain, you will find hundreds of kilometres for hiking which belong to this famous pilgrim’s route. We recommend the route known as the “French Way”, which has already been mentioned in a previous post dedicated to the Camino de Santiago; this walkway starts in Roncesvalles and ends in Santiago de Compostela. If you don’t have enough time for all the journey (800 kilometres divided into 30-31 stages), you can also discover many beautiful itineraries in Navarra, La Rioja, Burgos, Palencia, León, Lugo and A Coruña.

    In the Basque Country, you can find the forest Bosque Pintado de Oma, located in the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. This is a magical place to practice your favourite sports as well as a wonderful landscape. In Burgos you can’t miss the walkway Cañón del Ebro, a circular itinerary of 15 kilometres and medium-level difficulty and goes along one of the most famous rivers of our country.

    Located in the Spanish Central System, Sierra de Gredos, between Salamanca, Cáceres, Ávila, Madrid and Toledo, includes lagoons and spectacular gorges; this is a natural experience caused by glacial erosion and there is an interesting hiking network. The ascent to Pico del Mira, accros Los Galayos, is one of the favourite routes for hiking lovers.

    The Valencian Autonomous Community includes an interesting set of pathways forming the so-called “Via Augusta”; an experience to enjoy this sport while discovering traces of the Roman Empire in Spain. If you travel to the Canary Islandsenlace, we recommend you visit the Teide National Park, a beautiful adventure to enjoy its impressive volcanic landscapes.
