From US$80.49
Montserrat features impressive views, legends, and landmarks, but experiencing all of this in a day can be difficult. Enjoy the undivided attention of your guide on a private tour and learn more about the mountain’s myth and geography, while visiting landmarks, such as the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey or the peak of Sant Jeroni. Select a challenge level that suits you, and rest your feet with round-trip transport included.
What to Expect
Begin your private tour with pickup from your Barcelona hotel by air-conditioned minivan. Meet your guide and enjoy the scenic drive as you head northwest toward Montserrat, listening to illuminating commentary about the legends associated with the landscape.
Having selected a level that suits your hiking ability, begin your tour alongside your guide. On a Level 1 or 2 tour, enjoy an easy, shorter walk, before taking in views from the summit of the Sant Joan Funicular Railway (own expense). On a Level 3 or 4 tour, hike the St. Jeroni Tail to the top of Montserrat, and on a Level 5 hike, traverse across the mountain and visit the Benedictine monastery nestled in the rock face.
At the end of your tour, relax as you’re driven back to Barcelona and dropped back at your hotel.
