Full description
Depart from Barcelona and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the sacred mountain and monastery of Montserrat. Upon arrival, visit the monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat and see the Black Madonna wooden carving from the 12th-century known as La Moreneta (The Dark One). Ascend to the middle of the mountain range, and enjoy panoramic views as you ride aboard the St. Joan funicular railway. Then, strap on your walking boots and brave the hike to the summit. Stop to rest when you reach the shrine and enjoy a picnic lunch at a picturesque spot in the countryside. Escape the crowds and discover a little-known area to look for Spanish wild goats and other wildlife in their natural environment. Return back down the mountain and pass more shrines before heading back to the monastery for the return trip to Barcelona.

Fermi is a super pleasant guide. His job must be pretty tiring. He's always in a good mood and tries really hard. We can only recommend the tour. He carries drinks and food in his rucksack for all guests and varies the tour depending on their physical condition. If you go with him, quickly ask him for water, even if yours isn't empty yet :) He tells you a lot of interesting things about the mountains, people and the monastery. We get full points

The tour with our guide Fermi was great and we can highly recommend it to everyone!! We were in Monserrat and since the planned hiking route was closed for safety reasons (heat wave, fire,...), our guide Fermi came up with another great hiking route. The track was beautiful, with many waterfalls, natural pools,... We really had a wonderful day!

Fue una experiencia memorable. Es verdad que resulto ser cansado pero vale la pena. La historia, las vistas y todo cuanto hay es un verdadero tesoro. Nuestro guía fue Fermin quien se portó lo máximo con nosotros. Afortunadamente nosotros fuimos la única pareja en esta aventura y Fermin fue paciente, entendía los límites de nuestro edad y en ningún momento nos pidió hacer más de lo que podíamos. El hecho de que los guías sepan tanto de la historia ayuda a que cada lugar maravilloso se convierta en algo fascinante.
