What you'll do

You will discover the secrets of Montserrat Monastery and Hike the Natural Park Off the Beathen Path with a passionate local guide in a small group (max 8 pax)

HIGHLIGHTS
- Guided visit to the monastery with a specialized local guide
- Early tour to beat the crowds
- Hike the magical mountain off the beaten path (2-3h hike)
- Enjoy some free time at the monastery after the hike.

DESCRIPTION
After 1 hour drive on a AC minivan, we will arrive to Montserrat. We will start the day visiting the Benedictine abbey before the crowds arrive. Will discover its amazing history and some of the legends of the monastery.

We will start hiking from the monastery following a beautiful path with many natural viewpoints that will offer stunning views. We will continue until one of my favourite spots, from where we will have 360 degrees views over the multi-peaked rocky range and in clear days we would be able to see the Pyrenees.

After admiring those great landscapes taking some pictures and trying some typical Catalan snacks (please bring your own sandwich for lunch) we will start descending through a shady path between the needle formations and forests of the mountain that will bring us back to the Abbey where we will have some free time to visit the farmers market, relax or hear the Escolania de Montserrat Boys Choir sing (From Monday to Friday, subject to church capacity)

Highly recommend this! You get to everything before the crowd starts coming in. Our group was the first to the monastery so we were able to get pictures without the crowd. Hike was great. Glad I signed up for this hiking tour.

If you’re wanting to visit Montserrat, look no more. Ramon is an incredible host, going above and beyond to make the experience amazing. His local knowledge of the region and monastery are second to none. It far exceeded expectations as “off the beaten path” proved an excellent alternative to normal tours as the hiking, conversations and views were an added plus to the normal monastery tour. Highly recommend

Awesome experience. Not only was it a very nice hike with great views, but it was also very educational. Ramon was excellent. I would 100% recommend it. Will do again when I’m back in Barcelona for sure
