The cold months arrive, with those days in which some rays of sun shine, its occasional showers and the routine of work. The landscape changes, the temperatures are milder and we feel more comfortable and lighter to do other activities, and a little further from the sun, the sea and the beach.
But that it is less hot does not mean that we have to stay at home, nothing is further from reality, in the interior of the province of Malaga we have a perfect option for those weekends and the many holidays that exist during these months, the Caminito del Rey .
The winter season is perfect for venturing out on this trail, one of the most impressive in Spain, a visit in which the weather plays an important role, since it can make you live a perfect experience or that moderate rain makes you enjoy a day as unusual as it is unforgettable.
Although, as we have mentioned, rain and wind can make an appearance at this time of year causing the Caminito to close as a precaution and to guarantee the safety of its visitors, it is also possible that it rains calmly and intermittently . In this case, we will be able to do the tour with raincoats (never with umbrellas) and we will be lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful pictures that the wet rock forms, with the freshness of the rain on the trees and plants, and that smell so characteristic of the wet earth that remains stored in memory.
As for the wind, we no longer have to worry about our safety, since a tunnel has been set up in the rock through which we can pass when there is a risk of landslides. In addition, adrenaline lovers will have an added attraction in case of wind, living one of the most exciting experiences, passing through the suspension bridge , an unforgettable experience for lovers of risk, caused by the movement of the ground under our feet. An elevated walk that will cause us that tickle in the pit of the stomach that leaves us breathless for a few seconds.
And how could it be otherwise, in autumn you can enjoy many more activities in the natural environment of Caminito del Rey , such as the hiking trails that we find in El Chorro and Ardales and in which we can reach one of the many viewpoints in the area, places to contemplate the most beautiful natural landscapes.
The traditional rural gastronomy is also a fundamental part of the visit to Caminito del Rey , a tradition that can be fully enjoyed in the many bars and restaurants in the area or in the nearby towns of Álora, Coín or Ardales. We also recommend that you do not leave these towns without visiting their urban centers, because we assure you that they are places full of charm and popular architecture.
It is also very close to the charming Ronda, the city of the Tagus and the balconies on the cliffs, the cobbled streets and good food, as well as being the birthplace of bandits and traditional bullfighters. Another highly recommended visit is Antequera , a place to visit its beautiful urban center or the nature of Torcal.
Be that as it may, rain or shine, winter is a perfect time to come to Caminito del Rey if you still do not know it, or to repeat a visit, because we can assure you that every time you come you will discover new details, different prints and many surprises that this natural setting has prepared for you.
