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.

Via Ferrata Barcelona

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.

Via Ferrata Barcelona

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 Montserrat

Spectacular scenery spreads across the mountainside of Catalonia. Prominent jagged peaks form an impressive and striking image. Legendary stories diffuse from a centuries-old monastery, while a scattering of squalid huts lie abandoned by secluded monks. The peculiar pink conglomerate rock that the mountain range consists of is fully protected within a national park.

More info about Via Ferrata in Montserrat:

The Montserrat mountain range features a large collection of jagged peaks close to the Catalonian capital of Barcelona. The most prominent peaks include Sant Jeroni (1,236 meters), Montgrós (1,120 meters) and Miranda de les Agulles (903 meters).
