Not specified

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, May, Jun, Jul, Sep, Oct, Dec




Come and enjoy a one day hiking in the Montserrat Monastery. It is a stunning massive rock conglomerate at 1,236 meters of height, with weird shapes, paths, caves, hermitages and unique landscapes.

We will traverse the astounding massif from west to east until the Montserrat monastery that is 15 km long, gaining an elevation of 955 vertical meters and losing then about 985 meters.

We will venture ourselves into rough paths, scrambling short sections and climbing up and down rock slabs. After about five hours, we will reach the highest point of the day: Sant Jeroni (1236 m) from where we’ll enjoy the magnificent views that the mountain offers. From that point, we’ll go down to the Montserrat Benedictine monastery, with 1.000 years of history.

This traverse requires good physical fitness. It is suitable for advanced hikers but could be really tough for beginners. There’s no fountain along the trip, so we have to carry all the water that we’ll need.

So if you are an experienced hiker looking for a great challenge in Montserrat , this is an adventure that you can’t miss. Send your request!

About the guide

I've been walking around the mountains my whole life. I'm geologist, mountain leader and I've completed a university postgraduate course on spiritual meanings and values of nature by the university of Girona. I climb from 1981 and I love to travel and know the countries from their mountains.

My idea of guiding is to make comprehensible the landscape and its natural, cultural, historical, ethnological or spiritual heritage. And, of course, to help to enjoy the trip and make it safe!
I'm living in Tarragona, Catalonia, and my specialty is Montserrat, near Barcelona.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
