9:15am Beginning of the half day Montserrat hiking tour
At the start of the Montserrat hiking tour, we will provide each participant with a map and compass for the day, and easy explanations to know how to follow the route of the day on the map helping yourself from the compass.
The guide is a professional instructor with years of experience training individuals to become mountain guides. He will always be there for your safety and to make sure you follow he good path! And if you do get lost, we will offer additional tips on how to correctly re-orientate yourself in the mountain.
The area we take you to is quiet, non touristy and really beautiful. It is rare to see people in the area, apart from a few local climbers and occasional wild mountain goats
Prepare to relax, enjoy and take a well-earned rest from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona.
12:00pm Break time
After a good couple of hours hiking we will arrive at a huge cave perfectly located to enjoy the scenery. There, we can have snacks and take a break for a while. Feel free to bring your own snacks or a sandwich if you’d like to. Note that we also have the option to prepare a picnic for you, made 100% with local products of high quality. Just select it as an extra when checking out.
12:30pm Final part of the hike
For the last part of the hike, we’ll get fully off the beaten path, following dry riverbeds.
If time allow, we may even climb a peak on the way back to the van.
The overall effective hiking time of this Montserrat guided tour is a bit under 3 hours, perfect for a nice morning of sport and nature before coming back to Barcelona for lunch. If you’re interested about a longer hike, check out our full day hiking experience in Montserrat.

Efforts are taken to reduce the amount of waste produced during the experience. All the plastic, glass and paper waste produced is recycled. Non-recycled waste for this activity is close to 0.
1)A real effort has been undertaken by Fermi and Joaquim to promote an off the beaten area of the Montserrat natural park, avoiding an ever increasing massification of the “touristy side” of the mountain. 2)Groups are kept to a small number (maximum 8 people) to reduce the impact on the environment during the tours. 3)More efforts are made to increase the awareness of their customers towards the preservation of the mountain.
