Yes, you can hike the Mediterranean Steps--the quintessential Gibraltar nature experience for the hale and hearty—even if you’re coming from a cruise ship. As long as you have 6-8 hours in port, don't get daunted by the fact the starting point is a hard-to-find outpost...More

Certainly one of the best ways to see the southern end of the rock. It took us under 3 hours from town to hike the trail, then back down Charles V wall. Not for the unfit though!

Race the steps this is a challenge to race the war time steps to the summit of the The Rock of Gibraltar. Great view of a very loyal part of the UK and Long may it remain so to benefit both Gibraltar and Spain.

The walk to the Steps begin at Jews Gate which is near the end of Engineer Road. There is a charge for access to the upper rock reserve, but it will be well worth it if the weather is fine. Take plenty of water and use some... More
