Full description
Depart Barcelona and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the sacred mountain and monastery of Montserrat. Upon arrival, visit the monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat and see the Black Madonna wooden carving from the 12th-century known as La Moreneta (The Dark One). Ascend to the middle of the mountain range, and enjoy panoramic views as you ride aboard the St. Joan funicular railway. Then, strap on your walking boots and brave the hike to the summit. Stop to rest when you reach the shrine, and enjoy a picnic lunch at a picturesque spot in the countryside. Escape the crowds and discover a little-known area to look for Spanish Ibex and other wildlife in their natural environment. Return back down the mountain and pass more shrines before heading back to the monastery for the return trip to Barcelona.

Fue una experiencia memorable. Es verdad que resulto ser cansado pero vale la pena. La historia, las vistas y todo cuanto hay es un verdadero tesoro. Nuestro guía fue Fermin quien se portó lo máximo con nosotros. Afortunadamente nosotros fuimos la única pareja en esta aventura y Fermin fue paciente, entendía los límites de nuestro edad y en ningún momento nos pidió hacer más de lo que podíamos. El hecho de que los guías sepan tanto de la historia ayuda a que cada lugar maravilloso se convierta en algo fascinante.

This hike, was awesome, Fermí our guide explain to us the history of Montserrat.. During the hike we soo mountain goats and did 5 summits. Some requiere a traverse and a solo of 15 to 25 feet wall, Fermí allowed to do this because he is also a Rock climber and accommodate our hike to our skill level...

Definitely the best hike I’ve ever been on! It’s a hell of a trail, not for the faint hearted. We were taken on trails that tourists don’t go on. It was long and tiring but so much fun with a great guide! Fermi has a great sense of humor and was very patient with everyone in the group. I’d suggest hiking boots (I had sneakers with good grip and did ok), a light jacket for the morning because it’s chilly but gets very hot later in the day (I went in summer at end of September). It was a hard hike but absolutely worth the views. You feel like you’re on top of the world. Highlight of my trip that I’ll never forget!
