The approximate difficulty level for this tour
Day 1. Montseny
Transfer from the airport to the hotel where we will spend the first night. (optional)
Day 2. The first day in the Natural Park of Montseny
Distance: 22 km
The route starts at the Montseny and enters into the Natural Park, which was declared Biosphere Reserve. We walk through holm oak woods and along a very clear path up to a 1.195 metres high hill, from where we can contemplate some spectacular sights of the Park and the Pyrenees at the back.
Day 3. The wildness landscape
Distance: 18 km
Today we have an easier route, but we have an ascent towards the Cingles de Bertí rocky cliffs that is also spectacular. From here, the panoramic views to the East, both over the Congost River Valley and the Montseny Massif, are truly unforgettable.
Always along areas of small hills and passes, the path will continue through orographic terraces, passing by historical areas, medieval sites and cascades and waterfalls. Transfer to the hotel.
Day 4. Through forests
Distance: 14 km
During this day, the path goes among pine woods and crops. This kind of environment will characterize most of this trail.
We will continue on conveniently signposted dirt tracks and footpaths towards Sant Llorenç Savall, always walking on very rustic wooded terrain. In Sant Llorenç, Teresa and her family are waiting for us.
Day 5. The shaped mountains
Distance: 24 km
This itinerary provides an opportunity to experience some of the most emblematic landscapes of the Catalonian Serralada Litoral Mountain Range.
These Mediterranean peripheral mountains have two of their most unforgettable enclaves in La Mola and El Montcau peaks. At the end of the day, we will finally discover Mura, a medieval village that sleeps within the silence of these mountains.
Day 6 The undiscovered Sant Llorenç Natural Park
Between Mura and the town of Rellinars, the route will enter predominantly deserted areas. The essence of the landscape will be the Mediterranean pine woods, a broken landscape irrigated by one watercourse after another. We will discover the spectacular hidden side of the Natural Park of Sant Llorenç del Munt.
Day 7. The magic mountain: Montserrat
Between Rellinars and Montserrat, the mountain will approach us. The Montserrat Mountain pointy stony teeth will levitate right over our heads.
As we ascend, we will enjoy the consecutive shapes of El Cavall Bernat, El Serrat de les Barretines, El Serrat del Vent, El Montgròs… Is there any other Mediterranean summit more spectacular, more venerable than this one? Montserrat certainly is the sacred mountain per se.
You can chose to stay the night in Montserrat or transfer to Barcelona.
