Hiking up Montserrat is a breathtaking experience that comes highly recommended. However, if you want to survive after the hike, make sure you’ve planned relaxing days that follow. Maybe take a trip to Barcelona and do a hop-on, hop-off bus adventure or hang out at the campsite with your feet up because this is a strenuous hike.
If you’d rather save your legs and energy, there is no shame in taking the cable car or aeri up and down the mountain. Don’t skip this day trip though because it’s really amazing, especially if you love nature.
Parking is free and right near the cable car building entrance, but get there early to secure a spot.
One-way ticket prices are €7 per adult, €3,50 for kids betweens 4 and 13 (toddler tickets are free) and €5,50 for those over 65.
Round trip tickets are a better deal at €11 per adult, €5,50 for kids and €8,50 for seniors over 65.
From March from March to October the aeri is open every day from 9:40 to 19:00 and in winter (from November to February) it’s open from 10:0 until 17:45. On public holidays and during the weekends it’s open from 9:40 Until 18:15.
What to Pack
There aren’t many places to buy food or snacks nearby service pack a picnic and enough food for the hike. Wear walking shoes and a sun hat with sun cream and a lot of water, as well as a raincoat. Taking some cash with you is always a good idea as well. Don’t forget your camera! Read more about the hike here.
