Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Experience a challenging, guided hike up the Rock and be rewarded with phenomenal views and precious memories. From the pier it's just a short drive to the Mediterranean Steps, which were created by the British military during World War II. Have your camera handy, you may see the different species of plants that call the Rock their home. One plant that you should look for is the Gibraltar Campion, a rare and endangered flower, and if you're visiting in spring you may witness migratory birds. When you reach the 1,398-foot summit you'll have breathtaking views of the Strait of Gibraltar, Windmill Hill, Europa Point, the Great Sand Dune, the Mediterranean Sea and the Spanish Costa del Sol. After you've taken your photos you'll walk to the Upper Cable Car Station for your ride back to town. Then, you'll rejoin your mini coach for the leisurely and relaxing ride back to the ship. .
