Departure time will be at 8:15 from your meeting point in Barcelona Centre. Your mountain guide will take you to Montserrat in an air-conditioned vehicle.
Once at Montserrat Mountain we will provide a map and compass an after a few minutes of explanation, you will be prepared to guide us around the mountain!
We are professional instructors and we’ve needed years of experience training individuals to become mountain guides. If necessary, we will make sure you choose the correct route and of course, we will always look after your safety. Don’t worry if you get lost! We will offer you tips on how to re-orientate yourself.
This area is very quiet and definitely far from the “tourist side” of the mountain. It is extremely rare to see people during the hike, apart from some local climbers and sometimes a couple of lost tourists.
Mountain goats can be spotted in the area. We want to offer you a relaxing experience out from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona!
After a couple of hours hiking we will arrive at a mountain refuge, where we will have a picnic lunch prepared with local products. Usually, we eat a nice sandwich from one of the best of Barcelona’s bakeries, local biscuits and plenty of fresh fruit. Please request when booking if you have any allergies or food intolerances.
In the afternoon, our Montserrat hike will take you totally off the beaten track. We will follow dry riverbeds rather than well trodden trails so that you could test your orienteering skills to the max!
Overall, this Montserrat hiking trip comprises 5 hours of active hiking time, with plenty of time for small breaks in some of different spots, with some breathtaking scenery along the way.
This is an experience that will not only make your trip authentic but also improve your practical orienteering skills for future solo hikes.
We’ll return to the meeting point in Barcelona at around 17:00.
