What you'll do

Together we will discover the Montserrat mountain massif and the famous Monastery on a unique hiking tour off the beaten path. We will take the train from Barcelona directly to the start point of our hiking tour at the bottom of the Montserrat mountain. Crossing the Llobregat river, our hike into the mountain starts with historical and cultural background stories. This hiking experiences takes us along many lonely hiking trails and abandoned hermitages. We will discover the unique nature and microclimates as the locals do, mostly away from the touristy paths. But we will also visit the more famous places like the for the Catalan people holy Montserrat Monastery with the black "La Moreneta" Lady of Virgin Mary sculpture, and the less known places like the cave, where the young shepherds once found the hidden "Virgen of Montserrat" (black Madonna) sculpture in 880 AD. We will hear the famous Escolania boy choir singing (Monday to Friday) - another beautiful highlight of our day on Montserrat. After having a break at the abbey and with a lot of impressions, history and picturesque images of the many unique views and beautiful lonely trails in our heads, we will head back, hiking down from the abbey to our start point of the hike. An unforgettable day and hike in the holy mountains of Montserrat. My Montjuic Hill Tour on Airbnb > https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/1471135

Robin

I'm since over 10 years a (running) tour guide in Barcelona. Born and raised in Germany, I love to live an active life and hiking is my passion. Combining my tour guide experience in Barcelona over the last 10 years and my passion for nature and history is what I want to transport to my guests to provide an unforgettable experience. I love to guide and tell stories, sharing historical background information and the anecdotes that makes us laugh. Meeting people on my tours from everywhere in the world is the big bonus for me of a life of a tour guide. I look forward to welcoming you on one of my hikes in and around Barcelona soon.
