TOUR DESCRIPTION

After 50 minutes drive from Barcelona we first visit the Benedictine Abbey, first built on the 11th century and home to Catalonia’s Patroness Saint, The Black Madonna, a strong symbol of spirituality and unity for the local people.

After, we hike up to the top, from where we enjoy the stunning views from the Natural Park of Montserrat and the rest of Catalonia from a bird´s eye view. Mediterranean Sea, main valley of the country and the Pyrenees further away, drawing the border with France.

During the hike we walk on the same paths used by pilgrims hundreds of years ago, we get inspired by Montserrat’s fascinating flora and fauna and we experience UNIque ways where rocky pillars and ravines show us how inner mysterious water emerge from the hidden and undiscovered very center of the massif.

Later at a Farmhouse we learn with a self-produced olive tasting the importance of the olive oil in the Mediterranean cuisine before enjoying a 3-course traditional meal with fantastic views over the mountain.

I am Uni, a professional mountain guide with years of experience guiding in Montserrat. I do walking and cycling tours all around Spain but my steps always bring me back to Montserrat, a magical place full of energy and spirituality.

I grew up in the Basque Country, Door to the Pyrenees, where I discovered my fascination for Nature. Once I finished my University Degree in Business Administration I lived in Denmark, Germany, Austria and Ecuador working in International Commerce.

After some years backpacking around the world I became certified Hiking and Cycling Tour Guide. I love what I do and feel to have many things to offer to this world. I have been living in Barcelona for many years. Travelling and getting to know new cultures is one of my biggest motivations in life.
