Montserrat is a landmark and a true Catalan icon. This stunning mountain range with its very characteristic rounded shapes is a favourite amongst tourist. Few of them, though, will experience that it's also very popular with the local motorbike enthusiasts. The distance from Barcelona is just shy of 60km, and the first 2/3 is less interestingly through the industrial area surrounding the city. This is in turn compensated with the spectacular landscape once we arrive, and start our ascent on the curvy roads. Once you see this, you will forgive your guide and pilot.

This tour is more about riding motorcycle, than visiting the famous monastery, but if you are so inclined, we can change the tour a bit. After Montserrat, we double back, and of course take a detour on some interesting piece of road, which is a personal favourite (you will see why), before we return to Barcelona. All in all a tour worth trying.
