Full description
You’ll be picked up at your hotel in Barcelona and travel by private van on a 45-minute drive to the Montserrat Monastery, where your walking/hiking experience begins. You can choose from 3 different options, with different routes and durations. The walking tour will introduce you and your group of up to 7 persons to the Montserrat range. Along the way you’ll not only take in spectacular natural beauty, but also the Montserrat Monastery, its Black Madonna, and the world-famous Montserrat Boys’ Choir. Your guide will tell you how the mountain has become a religious and cultural symbol known throughout the world.

Booking with Get Your Guide was easy and seamless. My Guide, Pere, was organized and prompt with correspondance. He was very thorough with his questions to assess my athletic abilitiy and offered many different routes and time schedules to choose from. When hiking, Pere was very attentive and very informative. He is super knowledgeable about the history, the geography, flora and fauna and he also speaks very good English. Pere also provided me with an extra coat and a delicious snack. I felt very safe and in good care at all times with Pere. I loved every minute of my hike; the views are incredible as is the Montserrat Mountain Range and the Monastery. What a day! It was hands down the best day of my holiday.

Pere picked us up at the hotel in a comfortable mini van, and took us on the most beautiful hike on Monserrat. It was exciting, interesting, Pere told us lots of legends and history about the mountain. Reaching the top was a thrill, he also brought a nice snack, the view was breathtaking. He took us a little bit off the track for a challenging climb - excellent!!

Excellent day of discovery and hiking spent with our guide Father. A great mastery of French despite his modesty! He was able to transmit to us his passion for the history of the site of Montserrat, its geology and its legends. Very attentive guide who listens to his group (Photos, small snack at the top...) We recommend!
