Do you want to discover Catalonia’s most famous mountain in a unique way? Join our horse riding half-day tour to Montserrat and admire the beautiful scenery along the National Park.

Montserrat Horse Riding Tour

Depart from the city center at 8:30am on an open-top minibus in direction of Montserrat Mountain. During the one-hour ride sit back and admire Barcelona and the singular corrugated summit of Catalonia’s most emblematic elevation.

Once you get to the destination, step inside the beautiful tenth century Romanesque Montserrat Monastery located at the top of the mountain accompanied by your professional bilingual guide. Discover the history of this Benedictine monastery, still inhabited by 150 monks, and the Virgin of Montserrat. This small statue of the Virgin Mary and Child is the most revered icon in Catalonia and the province’s patron saint. After the guided tour, enjoy a ride on the Funicular de Sant Joan to the Natural Park. The panoramic views of Montserrat Mountain are magnificent.

Upon arrival at the equestrian center, embark on a memorable horseback ride (after receiving some initial instructions) in the scenic natural park. During the horse-trekking, your instructor will give you riding tips and how to groom a horse.

After a fun day enjoying nature, take the bus back to Barcelona. You will be back in the city center at 1pm.
