We'll meet next to the Arc de Triumf in an A/C mini van. We'll have three options of hikes depending on fitness levels: - Beginners 2-3 hours, where we'll start the hike at the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey and visit Sant Miguel Cross and watch the famous Montserrat choir boys (only Monday - Friday). Elevation Gain: 236m. Total distance: 5km. - Intermediate 3-5 hours (To Sant Jeroni 1236 m altitude, starting from Monastery). Elevation gain: 537m. Total distance: 8km. - Advanced 5-6.5 hours (From base to top Sant Jeroni 1236m altitude and back down). Elevation gain: 956m. Total Distance: 18km. Option to reduce this to 15km with funicular (excluded in price). PLEASE NOTE, DURING THE VERY HOT MONTHS OF JULY & AUGUST, WE ONLY RUN THE BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE HIKE. Throughout the hike we'll discover the fauna and flora of Montserrat, including squirrels, bats, wild boar and recently they've introduced mountain goats. If you'd prefer something more gentle we'll start higher up the mountain at the Monastery (beginners & intermediate) and you'll be able to enjoy drive up, admiring the dense undergrowth with the wide variety of plants of up to 1250 different species. Other things we'll discover: Our Lady of Montserrat La Moreneta, The Via Crucis (Stations of the Crosses), Oliba Abbot of Ripoll, Monks and the sedimentary rock formations, which are famous for climbers.
