The day begins with morning pickup at your Barcelona hotel and a drive in an air-conditioned minivan outside the city center to where the jagged granite formations of Montserrat rise above the landscape. Learn about the many myths and spiritual significance of the mountain, including its reputation as the home of the Holy Grail in Arthurian legend.
Choose from several levels to match your hiking experience and endurance, each with varying mileage and difficulty. Levels 1 and 2 are suitable for families and novice hikers, featuring an easy 2-hour walk and spectacular views from the top of the St. Joan Funicular Railway (tram fare not include). Pick up the pace with levels 3 and 4, which include a 5-hour round-trip hike to the mountain summit along the scenic St. Jeroni Trail. If you're an expert hiker, challenge yourself with a 7-hour hike from the mountain’s west side to east, with a rewarding visit to the famous Benedictine monastery.
After your day out in nature among the history and majesty of Montserrat, relax on the return ride to Barcelona.
