Què farem?

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.

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.

Robin was an amazing guide! He told me so much history regarding the mountain of Montserrat and the abbey at the top. Also that the name Montserrat is a female name in Catalonia shorten as “Monte”. I remembered after the journey, the famous opera singer “ Montserrat Caballé” and where her name came from. Also Robin told a lot of stories about the geographic and history of the location and many other place’s in Catalonia. I learned so much from him as we were hiking. I also got to know about him and his personal life. It was my first time hiking so Robin made sure everything is ok with me as we are going up and he kept telling stories that keeps us going forward. It was awesome experience for me for sure and added another angle to my trip to Barcelona. Highly recommended and I would do it again next time.

Doing the trip outside Barcelona was the best decision in this crazy times. Hiking around in the Montserrat mountains and get information about that place and seeing the monastery from our viewpoints. Robin did a great job and I can recommend him and Tour to everyone who want to do something special outside busy Barcelona.

Robin is a great person to do this hike with. He is very knowledgeable about the place and Barcelona in general. He also paces himself according to the group. I couldn’t have imagined it going any better. Highly recommend.

This hike was a wonderful experience for us. Robin was a delightful guide and extremely knowledgeable about the geography, history, and local lore related to the area. He made sure to check in with each of the participants and adjust the pace according to the needs of the people in the group. We spent a week in Barcelona and this was our favorite day!

A must when visiting Montserrat! Robin is kind, open and generous. He understands that everyone has different abilities physically and mentally for a mountain hike. He is supportive and a great motivator. He tells you the history of Montserrat and Barcelona throughout the hike. When we reached the top I realized how lacking the experience would have been by just taking the train up to the monastery. The views are stunning throughout. The flora is beautiful. We saw the boy’s choir and it was a treat. I recommend this experience 100%
