    Join me for a fantastic hiking adventure in one of the most emblematic mountains in Catalonia! We will go to Pedraforca, which means “snote pitchfork” in Catalan. 

    Pedraforca’s name comes from the fact that it has 2 mains peaks. There are different hiking options in the mountain, so there are options for hikers of different levels. This is a beautiful vertical playground ideal to enjoy a day not far from Barcelona.

    In fact, it is only 2 hours away from Barcelona. But in that short time, you will notice the big difference between the city and the mountain environment! The noises and crowds are left behind as we face the rocky terrain with amazing views. Furthermore, there are beautiful forests, and the natural setting in general is stunning.

    We will reach the summit through the best route adapted to your level. The most popular one is the normal route (particularly during the summer) as it is rather easy but varied: we traverse a forest, ascend to a pass, do some easy and short rock climbing…

    The hike to the summit takes a full day, between 6 and 8 hours.

    Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician and Rock Climbing Guide / Sport Climbing Technician

    I’m Xavi Fàbregas, a certified climbing and mountain guide and a Biology graduated.

    I started climbing as a child, where with a group of friends we started on multipitch climbing in the hand of the then guardian of Sant Benet. I have made several climbs in the Alps, Atlas, Southeast Asia, Patagonia, Jordan... and I love it! The Pyrenees its the place where I've toured more.

     
     
     

     

    What People are Saying about Xavi Fábregas

     

    Xavi was wonderful. My daughter and I had a great climb. Early in our hike, while I was enjoying Xavi, I wondered if we really needed him. Then it became clear that it is easy to lose your way on Pedraforca and many do. It was much more enjoyable to have him with us and not have to worry about directions! We had some great conversations and learned a lot about Catalonia as well. Pedraforca itself is legendary, not because it is difficult but because it is so beautiful and unique.
