What you'll do

Away from Barcelona, we'll immerse ourselves in a very particular Mediterranean forest. The hike becomes a master class about nature, spirituality, geology, history and anthropology from one of the best experts in Montserrat interpretation. We'll discover the intimacy of every corner; the symbolism of rocks, valleys and caves; the ruins of ancient churches; the peak of Miranda de Santa Magdalena; Sant Jacob's ladder. This is nature and spirituality all in one. You'll see why Montserrat is known worldwide for its amazing natural sacred space.

Ricard

A geologist and official mountain guide, I have years of experience and a deep knowledge of Montserrat. All my life has revolved around Montserrat, its natural mysteries, and its sacred monastery. I am a researcher on the relationship between mountains and spirituality and the universal values of sacred places. I also lecture on these subjects and I'm professor of the university postgraduate course on Significant and Spiritual Values of Nature in the mountain areas and the university postgraduate course on Therapeutical Forests. I'm a guide of forest bathings, too. Francesc is my co-host. He is a very experienced alpine and climbing guide and a very friend of mine. We share our passion and knowledge towards Montserrat. And we love to transmit the universal values of this place with everybody interested to go beyond the topic...
