A beautiful nature experience with spectacular views - without even leaving the city! Skip the funicular and lines of tourists on Tibidabo and join me on my hidden hiking path to the top. Through the beautiful nature of Tibidabo's mountainside, epic views of Barcelona are guaranteed, but also different perspectives of the city which you otherwise would miss. During our hike, I offer a guided tour with stories and trivia about the city and its classical buildings. You are guaranteed to break a sweat, however the climb itself is not too strenuous and is recommended for anyone above the age of 11 wearing a good pair of shoes. Along the way, we will make several stops for photos and a picnic. We end on top of the mountain, where besides the best possible view of the city, there is an amusement park to be explored, along with the Cathedral del Sagrat Cor and several restaurants. If you are social and talkative and would like a natural experience in Barcelona without leaving the city, this is a hike for you.
I am an avid traveler and nature lover, and I just love a good view. I have been living in Barcelona for six years, mostly working as a cook and tour guide. During this time, I have explored most of the known beautiful hiking trails of the region. Living in such a big city, I consider it to be very important to have easy ways to escape the stress and noise of the big city, without having to travel for hours and hours to get there.

We will walk along some narrow paths on our way to the top, passing the astronomical observatory Fabra, as well as crossing a few of the dirt roads mostly used by mountain bikers. Besides the fantastic views of the city, we will also catch a glimpse of the backside of the mountain, beautifully overlooking the wild nature of Catalunya.
