What you'll do

Visit the fascinating Montserrat Mountain Range. This unusually shaped mountain, made of conglomerate rock, was established as a Natural Park in 1987 after a huge forest fire. The magical spires hide thousands of excellent rock climbing routes.

After admiring the 360° amazing views from the St Miquel's Cross, we will imagine which animals and characters the rounded rocks resemble. We will enjoy a discovery walk through the classic Mediterranean vegetation characterized by dense oak tree forest, boxwood bushes, and aromatic plants growing in the open meadows. We will tickle our sense of smell with wild rosemary, thyme, and lavender growing freely along the path and, if we are lucky, spot the iconic wild goat of Montserrat confidently walking on steep edges.

Throughout the sensational walk, we will observe other animal tracks and signs of local fauna. Seasonal fruit will be provided to all participants at Pla de Tarántulas. From Pla de Tarántuals, we will take a mountain trail and cross a small creek as we gently descend through the main valley back to the Monastery. Here we will visit the church with Saint Mary and taste some locally produced cheeses and fig bread.

Stepan led our group on a well thought out and varied route. We had equal parts paved and off road sections to the hike giving us great sense of the historical and natural trails in the area. The timing also made for a less crowded hike. Overall great experience!

Excellent trip! The point of walking with a local is learning more than you otherwise would. Stephan have us just that. He tailors the trip to what we liked to do, he provided good insights about the area and many other topics we talked about. Take this tour or others he offers and tip him well!

We had such a wonderful trip with Stepan who had many stories to tell about the mountains, and knew a lot about both the nature and history about the place. Very beautiful place, have not seen anything like it! Definitely worth it!

Stephan is a great host! Always has his clientele’s best interest in-hand! From safety to drinking water, to knowledge and a genuine concern for the locations history….Stephan is on top of it!

Stepan was really kind and respectful, so I could enjoy the hiking with safety :) Also, he was really good storyteller about the monuments, mountains and everything. I could make a lot of precious memories in Barcelona with other people by this trip!
