Our program takes place in Montserrat, a beautiful mountain with many peaks in the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. Here, we’ll find the chapels of Sant Joan, Sant Onofre and Santa Magdalena. The route that goes across these amazing hermitages is a very interesting point regarding culture as well as a dazzling natural area.

About the 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
Hiking
Via Ferrata

Ricard was amazing. It was everything I hoped for in my first hike. He picked a route that was perfect for my fitness level. I felt challenged but accomplished by the end of the 6.5 hour hike. I felt like Ricard and I were friends by the end of it. He was knowledgeable about the history of Montserrat and made sure to educate me about the trees, plants and the different mountain peaks during our adventure. I felt safe around Ricard and knew I was in great hands.  He’s a wonderful human and truly made this experience rememberable.
