Description

The majestic rocky spires of the Montserrat massif form a unique and dramatic spectacle, which are just 65 kilometres (40 miles) west of the capital of Barcelona.

The sedimentary rocks provide extremely resilient to erosion, despite thousands of years of wind and rain shaping the distinctive needles that form the peaks of the massif.

The land surrounding it was declared a natural park in 1987, which protects the lush vegetation and wildlife that flourish within the park.

Enjoy hiking various routes that take you to some of the more remote spots within the Montserrat Natural Park.

Roll with the winding trails, climb and fall with the slopes that feature breathtaking landscapes and intense solitude of the wildlife.

You may not see a single other person but you may glimpse the wildlife of Montserrat. Get up close and personal with mountain goats that wander the slopes, along with squirrels and boars.

After getting to grips with the Catalonian rocks, experience in greater depth the region via its cuisine. Try the local cheese, honey and wine, which all give flavour to the region.

Hiking in the Montserrat Natural Park is open to pretty much anybody who is aged 14 years old and above, and has generally good levels of fitness.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the majestic mountain range of Montserrat, close to Barcelona, for a day of hiking.

About the guide

guide profile img

My father and grandfather taught me to love the mountains from a very young age. At 12, I did my first rappel...down the wall of the village church (the priest wasn't there). That's where it all started...

I'm passionate about nature, climbing, mountaineering and ski touring and have been calling the Lleida Pyrenees home for as long as I can remember.

As a UIMLA-mountain leader, I have led trips and expeditions in America (Peru, US and Canada), the Alps, the High Atlas and even Ladakh (Indian Himalaya) and Yamalia (Russian Arctic). Since 2014, I am in charge of snow and avalanche training at ACNA (Asociación Conocimiento Nieves y Aludes).

For me, guiding is not work: it is my passion. Each tour and expedition provides a new chance to discover and share what surrounds us. Respect for the environment, nature and local culture are at the basis of my philosophy of life, which I try to share with joy.
