Barcelona is known for many amazing things, from the beautiful beaches and the Sagrada Familia, to the famous La Rambla street. However, there are many more amazing things to see and do not only in the city, but around it as well. And on this day trip, I would like to take you to the beautiful Montserrat mountain, located only 50 kilometres away from the city.

Montserrat offers hundreds, if not thousands, of different potential rock climbing routes. Absolutely stunning to admire from afar, seeing Montserrat up close and having the chance to climb and stand on one of several of its many peaks, from Sant Jeroni (1,236m) to Miranda de les Agulles (903m) is nothing short of amazing. And on this trip, you will the chance to do just that.

Due to the staggering variety of routes you can climb on Montserrat, there is also a number of different types of rock formations to climb as well, including big walls, needles, and numerous sport climbing crags. As a result, no climbing experience will be the same, but every climbing experience will be amazing. Also, because of the variety, there will be climbing options that are appropriate for people of all types of climbing ability. So regardless of your skill level, as long as you are in good physical condition, you can have a great time.

So if you want to not just see the city of Barcelona, but want to explore more of beautiful Catalonia, especially the natural beauty of it, send me a request and join me for a day of rock climbing at Montserrat. I know you’ll have a great time.

I can also lead you on a day of exciting via ferrata on Montserrat on this trip.

How to get to Montserrat?

  • Get a combined return ticket in Barcelona (train + rack rail train / tren + cremallera) at the FGC Espanya station.
  • Take your train: We recommend those leaving from Espanya station, line R5, at 7:36, 8:16 or 8:36 (8:16 even better!) and after 60 minutes your will arrive to Monistrol.
  • Once in Monistrol, walk 2 minutes to the rack rail train (cremallera) which will take you to Montserrat in a 20 minutes trip, which besides offers you nice views.

There are other options, you might consider:

  • Once there, walk 2 minutes to the cable car, Aeri station. Buy your return ticket and enjoy a 5 minutes trip to Montserrat.

A third option is the coach departing from Sants station. It arrives a bit later than the meeting time, but if you notify me, I will wait for you 15 additional minutes. I only need to know in advance.

About the guide: Francesc

Mountain Guide

Right in the heart of Catalonia, well connected with Barcelona, stands the Montserrat massif; a mountain with big natural, cultural and spiritual significance that rises sharply to 1,236 meters from the top of St. Jeroni.

I organize guided activities and courses of all levels, and offer the possibility to discover this fantastic mountain accompanied by a professional certified guide.

Along with all these activities in Montserrat, I can guide you over all the natural sites of Catalonia and the Pyrenees, a region with a wide range of possibilities for trekkers, hikers, climbers, etc.

I promote the use of sustainable transportation (train, zipper, funicular) and the development of activities that stimulate in participants a feeling of belonging to the places he or she visits. This perception of belonging, as we work with feelings and perceptions, can perfectly be assimilated to a sense of spirituality.

Our main activities are:
Spiritual values of Nature for private, groups or companies
Rock climbing
Via Ferrata

What people are saying about this trip



It rained the day of my guided climb which made the trip less than I had hoped for. However, Xavi made it the best day he could and after we bailed we did some sport climbing where it was protected from rain.



Excellent guide! I would recommend to anyone looking to climb in Montserrat! The perfect route was picked for my ability and I had a great day out with Francesc.



Everything about this trip was amazing. The only thing I felt could be better was about what to expect and / or bring for the day. We had a good idea of what was needed being climbers already but beginners may not.



We did a climb that suited my skill level, I felt really comfortable the whole way up and Francesc was a really nice guy. It was a really great day.



Excellent guide. Time was limited due to weather but my guide had planned out the routes perfectly and specific to my climbing level I described, allowing us to do many routes in quick succession. I felt safe climbing with him and he provided all equipment except for shoes. Would definitely climb again with him in the future. This explore-share service was also easy to navigate and helped with communication with my guide.
