The duration of this route varies a little depending on the rhythm that you take. Normally with an average pace can be completed in just 3 or 4 hours. It is a very famous route in Andalusia and although it was closed for 15 long years, it will not be until 2015 when it was reopened to the public.
Keep in mind that the Caminito del Rey only has the way to go, so you must know how to return after completing it. You also have the option of taking a bus that there is, which for only 1 euro will take you to the beginning of the route.
You have to be very well equipped to do this route. In addition to the protection you are given before starting the path, as a good hiker you will have to carry well equipped your mountain backpack or hiking backpack, always look for the safety of oneself.

This route has a distance of 7 kilometres and you can get there in 3 hours. It will always depend on your rhythm.
Already in the path we will have to pay much attention to the white and yellow signs which will guide us to complete the route that begins from the village of Asón.
One of the curiosities of this route, is that you will have to go through cattle pastures where in many of them you will have to open and close the gates and gates to continue the path. You must always be responsible and enjoy this activity respecting. There will be many signs reminding you that you have to close the gates so that the animals do not escape.
On the way we will find images so incredible that nature gives us. A big waterfall awaits us to continue with this rocky route.
Route of the Canyons of the Ebro
Located in the north of Burgos, this route is one of the most typical and like the Cantabrian is a route that every hiker should know at some time in his life.
These pipes have a depth of between 200 and 300 meters high, depending on the crossing. We will find an incredible flora undoubtedly dominated by Robles and Encinas. Many hikers classify this route as the most beautiful in the Spanish geography, and not for less.
We will always have the River Ebro as a friend and companion and the duration of this route will be just over 4 hours.
Crossing large forests and beautiful valleys, we may be lucky enough to see the walls of the canyon on some occasions. You will have to stop on more than one occasion to observe its greatness and beauty, and why not, take some pictures.
Enjoying the views of the Ebro at the top of the canyon is a real treat. You will cross medieval bridges with a lot of history and you will get to know villages that are currently in full recovery.
Undoubtedly this route of the Canyons of the Ebro is an excellent route to enjoy hiking at its greatest. 100% recommended.
Route of the Cascades of the Birth of the River World
Situated in the Sierra de Cazorla, these waterfalls are a true wonder of nature, and yes, we are lucky enough to have it in Spain.
The water of the snows and the rains make the birth of the river take place along the galleries and caves. The starting point of this route is in the Cueva de los Chorros, where the water falls more than 100 meters high forming a great waterfall.
The route of the Birth of the World River is catalogued as one of the most difficult in Spain. It is not a wing for people who suffer from vertigo because on the way was with several points of great height. We can say that this route and that of the Caminito del Rey are two of the most dangerous hiking routes.
The distance of this route is rather short. It only has 3 kilometers counting the round trip, but as we say, due to its great difficulty can take up to 3 hours to complete the route. Trekking for the brave, right?
The Cueva de los Chorros is a real wonder which you will be able to know inside, although you will only be able to do it during 150 meters, since later the access is restricted for beginners due to its dangerousness.
On this route you will find such beautiful prints that it will take you time to get out of your head. Don’t believe it? we’ll leave you a photo.
Oma Forest Route
For lovers of hiking, nature and the outdoors, we leave you one more route that has nothing to envy the others mentioned above. This route shines by itself and is also one of the best known in Spain.
It is located in Vizcaya and besides being called Bosque de Oma you can also find this route by the name of Bosque Pintado. Why that name? Because the painter and sculptor Agustín Ibarrola, made his work directly in the trunks of the trees.
It attracts a lot of attention because you won’t be able to make sense of this work of art from all positions. On the floor there are some points where you can find the total visualization of the work.
Speaking of the route, it is 7 kilometers away. The time of duration is approximately something more than 2 hours including the round trip, although it will depend on the time that you throw yourself admiring the work of art of Agustín.
It is one of the most famous routes in northern Spain. Many curious people come only to observe the drawings although it is also true that the route attracts a lot of attention for its green pastures and leafy forests.
