Horseback riding in Montserrat Natural Park

Riding excursions in a picturesque setting for beginners and advanced riders


Horseback riding is a sport very close to nature and a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Montserrat Natural Park with a view of the mountain massif of the same name.

We have two horseback riding excursions that we would like to recommend: on the half-day excursion you visit the monastery, which was built into an incredibly impressive rocky landscape. Afterwards you meet the horses and you ride with them through the national park.

On the full day excursion, you will first hike with a view of Montserrat. The horses will then meet you at a ranch and you will ride into the mountains.

What makes a horseback trip in Barcelona's surroundings?

The flora and fauna in Catalonia is absolutely worth seeing and is generally not yet recognized in its beauty. There is much to discover: views of coastal roads, the sea and of course the unique mountains, Mediterranean plants waiting for you near the metropolis! All this you will experience on the back of a horse. What could be better than completing the city trip with beautiful nature around you?
