Via Ferrata in Cala Molí, Girona

Carlos was an excellent guide for the Cala Moli Via Ferrata. He did a great job ensuring we were safe, while allowing the space to explore and enjoy the route. He is extremely knowledgeable about climbing, and knew when to step in a lend a hand (or knee). The route itself is stunning, and I can't recommend it enough to others. Additionally, going in a private group with Carlos was well worth the slightly higher costs than the tours with 10+ people because it allowed for dedicated help, and not to mention - he took some wonderful photos for us. I can't wait to return, so we can do another climbing adventure with Carlos.

Explore-share service was just what we needed. Hooking us up with a qualified guide that knows the area is invaluable when you are traveling out of country. I will use your service again!

Marc’s via Ferrata tour was amazing, and Marc was very accommodating and patient. First off I think you really need to be adventurous and have some level of fitness. It’s strenuous but all is worth the thrill and views along the way. I totally recommend this tour. I have been looking forward to exploring other via ferrata tours as well.

I would absolutely recommend Marc to anyone looking for adventure in the Barcelona/Costa Brava area. We had an amazing and one of a kind experience and were able to see the coastline from an incredible perspective. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and FUN! I can’t recommend this experience enough!

My girlfriend and I had Marc as a Via Ferrata instructor. Even though we were new and a little slow, not once did he rush or hurry us. All he focused on was safety and encouragement. This review will not do Marc justice. Truly an outstanding instructor

Via Ferrata Barcelona

My husband and I visited Spain in August and made sure to add a via ferratta to our 'to do' list. Franscec was a wonderful guide. We loved his geology knowledge (we're both geoloigsts), as well as his knowledge about the flora and fauna. The trip was fun, but we would have loved to have gone on a longer trip. Next time! We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a fun outside adventure.

Hicimos la vía ferrata de Sant Feliu de Guíxols y todo fué perfecto. Marc transmite toda la seguridad y confianza que necesitamos los primerizos. Además, dejarte guiar por alguien que ves que lleva las montañas y la naturaleza dentro enriquece más la experiencia. Ya estamos pensando en repetir porque nos ha enganchado!

I had one of the coolest experiences of my life on the Via Ferrata with Marc! He made sure that we felt safe and let us choose the level of difficulty that we wanted. He also took pictures of us climbing which I thought was really nice! Highly recommend

Me and my boyfriend had a perfect climbing via ferrata experience with Marc as our guide in Sant Feliu de Guíxols. As we have not been doing via ferrata in Spain before Marc made us feel safe about the whole thing. To find a guide that could customize the trip for just us two was exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him!

Both Explore-Share and Francesc gave us exactly the info we needed in a very short time, due to our program in Barcelona and around. There were no delays of any kind in our collaboration with both of them.

The via ferrata at las damas was amazing! The route is easy for people who have rock climbing experience, but also doable for everyone else!


 

There are many reasons for choosing Via Ferrata in Barcelona

With both the Montserrat Mountains and Pyrenees within striking distance of Barcelona, there is plenty of stunning scenery to experience. Head out into the alpine wilderness, surrounded by snow-covered peaks in the heart of the mountains or try out a via ferrata by the turquoise-blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. There’s no shortage of natural beauty.

 

Good to know:

Country Code:

+34

Currency:

Euro

Language:

Catalan, Castilian

Best time to visit:

May to October, but many guides offer trips year-round

What’s the weather like?

Average daily temperatures in Barcelona range from 12 ºC (54 ºF) during the winter to 25 ºC (77 ºF). Rainfall is also pretty infrequent year-round with autumn and spring being the wettest (but still comparatively dry) times of year

How to get there:

Any trip to Barcelona begins with a flight into Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN). Most guides will opt to meet you in the city and provide transport to the start of the trip. Otherwise, it is easy enough to get to nearby mountains by bus or rental car

More info about Via Ferrata in Barcelona:

Barcelona is known for many things from Gaudi to paella, but that is soon bound to change. The city is a veritable paradise for via ferrata climbing enthusiasts and boasts innumerable routes, some of which are just outside the city and others that are a bit farther away. Whether it is your first time climbing the iron rails or you are a seasoned pro, the perfect route is waiting for you here. For those looking for some introductory level via ferratas, look no further than Cala del Molí in nearby Girona. Offering easy and stunning routes that take climbers up above the Mediterranean Sea, there is no better place to get acquainted with the sport. Various routes, just west in Montserrat, are also perfect for beginners. Climbers looking for a bit more of a challenge may opt to head out of the city and to De les Dames or Teresina. Both of these climbing options are perfect for intermediate climbers looking for a slightly more technical challenge paired with incredible views too, of course
