Day hike from Barcelona to the Pyrenees

Come with Lisi, a local mountain leader, on this exciting day starting from Barcelona and driving to the closest Pyrenees, where you'll enjoy the trail and a unique view from el Pedraforca, the mountain with two summits!


1 Day

Apr - Nov




Join me on this ‘Border Crossing’ day hike in the Pyrenees, in which we’ll start from Barcelona and discover 2 valleys in one day!

This is a demanding but extremely rewarding hike for those who prefer remote and less frequented trails.

The trip includes the pick up in Barcelona, and driving towards the Pyrenees (in a 7 seats VW van). It’s a 1 to 2-hour drive, depending on the itinerary agreed for the hike.

There are several options, according to the time of the year and the fitness level and experience of the participants:

ROUTE 1 (Levels 1 to 2): Open to everyone! Includes fantastic views of the PEDRAFORCA! It’s a round hike that starts from the rural village of Saldes.
Duration of the hike (walking time): 4 hours.

ROUTE 2 (Levels 3 and 4): A must-do hike in this very special region in the Pedraforca, as it includes a visit to the most well-known mountain hut in this range.

Duration of the hike (walking time): 7 hours

There are options for longer and harder routes. During winter there might be snow and icy conditions which can complicate the hike, so we prefer to choose the itinerary, knowing exactly the dates and so the conditions. During summer we can adequate our hikes to your level and goals for that day.

So if are you ready to discover the amazing beauty of the Pyrenees close to , don’t hesitate to book this trip. I would love to be your guide!

What people are saying about Lisi



Lisi was the perfect guide, and made all the difference. She is extremely experienced, and knows the entire region inside-out. She was always very helpful and proactively generated ideas for the hikes. As the weather conditions changed in the run up to the trip, she had to adapt, and always did this wonderfully, with great ideas and always having on mind our capabilities and wishes. Besides all of this, she is a wonderful person, extremely friendly, and it was a true pleasure doing this trip with her. I can only highly recommend her.
