YOUR WALKING TOUR IN MORE DETAIL:

1. Cable Car Top Station

Meet your guide at the Mons Calpe Suite Bar, located within the Cable Car top station. Before meeting your guide we ask you to have your Nature Reserve ticket to hand and some drinking water plus we recommend you wear comfortable walking shoes.

2. Skywalk

Your guide will lead you south past Charles V Wall, a popular feeding place for the monkeys, towards the Skywalk, which was opened by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill in 2018. Located on a former military lookout point, the spectacular glass platform protrudes out from the edge of the cliff over the Jurassic dune below and overlooks the Mediterranean.

3. Douglas Path

Douglas Path is a 230m trail within the Upper Rock – Gibraltar Nature Reserve. You will follow this path with your guide, south along the upper ridge of the Rock passing abandoned former military lookouts and buildings along the way while learning all about Gibraltar’s fascinating and rich military history.

4. St Michael’s Cave

After rejoining the road, you will walk a short distance downhill to the entrance of St Michael’s Cave. Here your guide will show you in and around one of Gibrlatar’s most popular natural attractions. They will explain how this magnificent cavern was discovered back in Roman times and how it has been used as a military hospital and more recently as a concert venue. The wondrous formations will not disappoint.

5. Royal Anglican Way & Windsor Suspension Bridge

After alighting the cave, you will proceed north, down towards the Royal Anglican Way and along the spectacular Windsor Suspension Bridge that spans a 70 metre gap (just over 7 London double decker buses) over a deep ravine between two old military batteries. There is an alternative route on solid ground for the faint hearted 😊 .

6. Apes Den/ Cable Car Middle Station

Your walking tour will end at the Apes Den/ Cable Car middle station. Here you will be able to spend some more time with and learning about our furry and mischievous friends, the barbary apes before either heading down into town by the Cable Car or continuing south on your own, towards the Great Siege Tunnels and World War II Tunnels.
