Highlights

 
     

    Just outside the busy city of Barcelona, there is an amazing natural and architectural site ready for you to discover! Join me on a day hike to the impressive Montserrat with your friends or family.

    To get this program started, I will pick you up at your hotel or accommodation in the city. Later, we will transfer on a luxurious service to the location where the hike begins.

    Montserrat is a world-known religious icon and sanctuary. Its Benedictine Monastery is amazingly nestled in the cliffs of the mountain. This is also considered Catalonia’s most important mountain. The area features impressive geological formations. It is a great option to explore something different and natural only 30 km from Barcelona!

    The main idea for this private tour is for you to enjoy the program according to your fitness level and goals. Based on this, I will help you decide what and how much of the area you want me to guide you around.

    There are three possible routes to choose from for this program:

    • ROUTE 1 (Levels 1 & 2): Open to everyone! – It includes fantastic views from the top of the St Joan tram cable. Duration of the hike: 2 hours
    • ROUTE 2 (Levels 3 & 4): For sports lovers – On this version of the tour, I will guide you all the way to the top of Montserrat, St Jeroni. Duration of the hike: 5 hours
    • ROUTE 3 (Level 4): The performance approach – This consists on a long distance hike from the west side to the east side, and will take us all the way to the Monastery. Duration of the hike: 7 hours

    Which of these options is more appealing to you? I hope you join me on this program on your next visit to Barcelona.

    Groups on this program are of maximum of 7 hikers.

    I was a bit hesitate to book with explore-share as I have never heard of it and am a women traveling alone looking for a hike to do in another country. I am elated I booked with Pere on a full day hike in the Pyreneess. Pere was very nice, funny and professional- he had lots of info on history, culture and of course everything mountainside. He brought snacks and bought coffee which was unexpected but very appreciated- he provided transportation & had lots of extra gear too! He was very good at judging my skill level and pushed me just enough as far as pacing and trail difficulty. I am so lucky to have chosen Pere as a guide! Internally it was a physically and mentally challenging hike; I would not of made it to the top if I was alone. If anyone is hesitating on which guide to pick I would say to look no further and go with Pere. It was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona and will remember it for years to come when looking for extra motivation & momentum on my next hikes.

    We had a fabulous and unforgettable hike in the Pyrenees with Pere. He is a very knowledgable, safety conscious and experienced guide. He had water, snacks, and gear for us and took some really great pictures during the day which he shared with us. We also made a short stop before our hike for coffee and a snack as he went over the hike we would be taking and showed us a map of the trail and area, which was really nice for orienting us. This is a hike not to be missed, and I would highly recommend going with Explore-Share and not on your own unless you are very familiar with the trails and area.
