Where you'll be

At 1236m Sant Jeroni is the highest point in the Montserrat massif.

At the top Northwards you'll look down almost 1000 vertical metres to the Llobregat valley and look up to the Pyrenees over 100km away. South and east the views extend as far as the Mediterranean coast and Barcelona and even, on a clear day, the island of Mallorca.

I would absolutely recommend hiking with Jamie. I am a hiking novice and was terrified at the prospect of doing an intermediate hike, but he was encouraging, thoughtful and friendly. I took a tumble and retreated, and Jamie insisted on accompanying me to the bottom to make sure I was okay, before racing back up to the peak to meet up with the rest of the group. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I’d do it all again (even the fall!) in a heartbeat. Thank you Jamie!

Monserrat was a truly unique experience for us. If you are into magnificent nature go for it. Jamie is a great guide and very friendly man!

Super highly recommend! I was thinking of doing the Montserrat hike on my own, but was so glad I went with Jamie instead. He took us through the best routes to hike from the monastery to the peak & it was an amazing experience overall :)

This was the highlight of the trip to Barcelona. Breath-taking views and awesome hiking in the most beautiful mountain ranges ever. Jamie is very knowledgeable on the trails and made decisions based on the dynamic weather conditions. It was great to spend the day unwinding from the busy Barcelona city to the tranquility of the mountain experience. 100% recommend it, and plan to sign up again with Jamie once I'm back in Barcelona.

This hike was amazing in every way! From the pick up to drop off Jamie was incredibly accommodating, knowledgeable, and just a great person to spend the day with! The hike itself was absolutely beautiful, starting at 7:30 was also wonderful as we miss the crowds and had the trail mostly to ourselves. Definitely worth the money and time, don’t miss out on this hike with Jamie!

Jamie was a wonderful guide. He had a great understanding of the area and the hiking trails. He provided interesting facts, history, and more information about the sights in the area. Jamie was very personable, friendly, easy to talk to and arrange the hike. I would recommend this hike to anyone looking for a fun but exerting physical activity while in the area. Jamie also had a great understanding of the difficulty levels of the various hiking trails and I would recommend taking his advice in terms of selecting a hike.
