Great Workout!

The Med Steps are an incredible way to get a workout in unique and incredible surroundings. If the steps don't leave you breathless (they will!) the views definitely will!

I've been up the steps a few times to do some sort of workout and let me tell you it isn't at all easy. I recommend going either really early morning when the sun hasn't risen yet or late evening because once the sun hits up there it feels like the trip is never ending. The actual steps are quite...

Highly recommend the descent. Need to have the legs / fitness for it as it is a commitment once started and a long way around the base of the Rock to rejoin civilisation. But it is so worth it. With a sparkling turquoise sea in front of you the whole way it really is special. We did it twice.

As previously stated not for the faint hearted. If you are not agile and have a fear of uneven surfaces please go no further. It is a challenging walk down the Eastern face of the rock the steps are not regularly spaced out, some steeper than others so you have to be careful where you place your feet. The guide... More

Walking down the steps is tough going on the leg muscles, but worth every step and a great achievement.

The steps are a really beautiful way around the rock. There are only a few people and the views are amazing. But it is very hot and you walk nearly the complete way in the sun, there are only a few shodowplaces. You need a lot of water in the summertime, you can´t get water there during the approx. 90-120min... More

We actually hiked down the steps as we ascended from the opposite side. Spectacular views and a real sense of history. Bring good hiking shoes! Windy at the top which probably scared of a few descenders!

We did the steps from top to bottom, which meant going down the majority of the steps first. Not sure if this is easier, my legs banged for about 3 days afterwards. THEY ARE STEEP AND SLIPPERY WITH DUST. An excellent experience for able adults and kids over 13ish, although one false move and you could get very dead! Hang... More
