Mystical Montserrat Mountain, Infamous Peaks & Scenery
For up to six persons we'll drive in a air conditioned van to the small town of Monistrol de Montserrat, approximately 50min and is where our hiking Barcelona Tour will begin. We'll meet in the hipster area of Poblenou or depending on the location of your accommodation, we can pick you up there.
From here we'll have two options of hikes:
1. SHORT 4hr Hike approximately where we'll take you off the beaten path away from the crowds. It's very much a SHORT hike, around 8-10km of walking, but we'll show you some of the best views the mountain has to offer, for some stunning pictures to take home. Highlights include the historical Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria.
2. If you're up for the challenge we'll hike from the base to the top of Montserrat. An amazing climb, with breathtaking views until we reach the historic Benedictine Monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat. We'll have time to look around the Monastery on our way back down, so from here we'll continue our hike to San Jeroni at 1236m the highest point. The hike should take around 5-7hrs and is 17km in total. Option to reduce this to 13km. Once we've had lunch at the top, we'll walk back down to the Monastery and you'll have time for a well earned drink.
Both hiking options are between 4-7 hours of walking (depending on fitness), with options to get the funicular train back down the mountain. PLEASE NOTE, THE FUNICULAR IS NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE
