Highlight of my Barcelona Trip!

This day trip was the highlight of my vacation! The hike took us to nearly half of the hermitages on the mountain and the views from each vantage point were absolutely incredible. Fermin was the best tour guide and did a great job explaining the history and geology of the area. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes and bring extra water. I will say that the hike was more strenuous than expected, but totally doable for anyone that hikes a few times a year.

Fermi and Ivan are great guides and began by showing us some areas of the monastery that we wouldn't have seen if we were on our own - don't miss the second side chapel from the front behind the glass doors on the north side! The weather was gorgeous and hot, but they brought plenty of water and a nice lunch that we ate in a shady park accompanied by a cello player near the Pablo Casals statue.

If you are looking for a real hiking experience, this a great tour. This was a fantastic hike of nearly 8 miles. We very briefly saw the monastery at Montserrat by choice, we opted not to wait in the line for the Black Madonna before taking the cable car up to the hiking trail. The hike took us along the mountain ridge to several shrines, both new and ancient. The hike also included two different peaks, including St. Jeroni, the highest peak in the mountain range, so although we took the cable car up, there was still a good amount of altitude gained while hiking. The terrain on the hike was easy to intermediate, but the length of the hike definitely makes it an intermediate difficulty overall. We did not take the cable car down, so be prepared for a long but beautiful trek down concrete stairs to get back down to the monastery. Fermi was an experienced and knowledgeable guide. He carried our lunches of bocadillos sandwiches, mandarins, and cookies, plus a liter of water for everyone. I recommend bringing along some extra water for yourself, as one liter isn't much for such a long hike.

Lifetime memories. Our guide was outstanding, he gave us options, ensured our safety and comfort, and guided us to incredible peaks and shrines. Fantastic lunch spot. If you want a brief visit to the Monastery and a full day of hiking I cannot recommend this highly enough.

We did this hiking tour with our family 2 teenage sons and it was amazing. Our guide, Fermin, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the monastery and the surrounding area and knew the mountains like the back of his hand he climbs the areas regularly. We had a tour of the monastery, and then a great hike past ancient hermit caves and to the top of peaks that gave us panoramic views. We saw mountain goats on nearby ridges. Fermin matched the hike to our ability and gave us history and nature lessons as we walked. This hike was the highlight of our trip to Spain and well worth it!

Fermi was such a wonderful guide! He was so knowledgeable about the area. My boyfriend and I have never rock climbed before and had helped us see the most beautiful views! He made sure we avoided the crowd by visiting the black madonna first thing in the morning. Thanks, Trescant!

la randonnée en elle même est très bien , mais nous avions demandé un guide en français et ce n'était pas le cas . La discussion était donc difficile, sur toute la journée c'est un peu long
