If you are looking to take a break from city life, then you will find the relaxing and serene atmosphere of Montserrat at just 50 kilometers from Barcelona to be ideal. Join me on this one day hike to Sant Jeroni (1,236 m) and reach the highest point of this amazing site!

Located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Montserrat is a peculiar and gorgeous mountain range. Every year it attracts thousands of people from all over the world as it is home to one of the most important religious sites in Spain, the Virgin of Montserrat Abbey.

However,  Montserrat is more than just a holy site. It also delights hikers and nature lovers who are seeking for new adventures. During this one day program, I invite you to follow me to the highest summit of Montserrat: Sant Jeroni (1,236 m). From the top, you will catch spectacular views of the monastery, of the colorful countryside below and on clear days, you may even see Mallorca!

To get to the summit, we will first take the train that goes up to the famous Montserrat Abbey. Then, from the top station of the Funicular Sant Joan, we will follow a path that will take us to the summit of this magical spot. After enjoying the views, we will start our return and climb down through the “stairs of the poor people”.

Because this is not a very demanding trip, we welcome all people to join us, regardless of hiking experience and level. Of course, you will need to be physically fit for the ascent. The hike can be done all year round, but it’s more enjoyable during autumn, spring and winter. In summer we can take the train to St Joan that will save us 40 minutes of hiking under the sun.

So are you ready to reach the highest point of Montserrat? Then send your request and join me on this one day hike where you will discover this stunning  Catalonia landmark. 

And, if you are looking for more unforgettable experiences in Spain, you can also check out this One day hike around the Benasque Valley located in the Aragonese Pyrenees.

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
