The rugged Montserrat Mountain range northwest of Barcelona is one of Spain’s most picturesque areas. Like jagged teeth, the formations soar skyward creating unparalleled natural beauty. The mysterious peaks have inspired many legends and motivated Wagner to write some of his most beautiful arias. Departing from Barcelona, your coach takes you to Collbato. From there your trekking starts to reach Montserrat Monastery (approximately 3 hours). At a height of 2,380 feet, on a sort of natural platform, stands the Montserrat monastery, located in the middle of the mountains, which could be considered a unique example of natural art.
It appears that 20 or 25 million years ago, this geographical area was occupied by a small inland sea in which rock formations were deposited, later forming the mountainous relief known as Montserrat. Once in Montserrat you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the spectacular environment. The famous Montserrat Monastery, founded as a Benedictine Abbey during the 11th Century, is firmly perched on a ledge hanging 2,400 feet above the River Llobregat. Here, the 12th century Black Virgin of Montserrat awaits your discovery. Once the hiking tour has finished, you’ll have some free time to explore the monastery.
NOTE: Tour not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. Comfortable shoes, water, a light jacket and a hat are recommended. There are downhill and uneven paths, plus cobblestones to walk over. Walking at Montserrat’s monastery is at guests’ own discretion. You’ll get a snack box from the ship. Respectful attire that covers shoulders and knees should be worn in order to enter the church. less

Cross the Oresund by ferry on a visit to Elsinore, Denmark. Explore Helsingor, Helsingborg’s twin city that commands the Oresund Narrows. Visit the Kronborg Castle which was the setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Viewed from the outside, the mixture of elegant royal castle and brutal military fortress is quite imposing. Inside it is a testimony to the art, design, and royal way of life prevalent during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. See the chapel, the sole remnant of the original 16th-century castle, and the Knights’ Hall. Continue with a guided walk through the picturesque town which dates back to 1426, and takes its feisty character from the Danish King Erik of Pomerania. King Erik introduced the infamous and reviled Sound Dues - a fee payable to the Danish Crown by ships passing through the sound. He also built Kronborg Castle at the narrowest point of the sound to ensure trouble-free and efficient collection of the dues. By walking through the city of Elsinore, you’ll notice that much has been done to preserve the old character, and has also kept its charm and vitality. Return to Helsingborg with a panoramic ferry ride. Once back in the city, see the famous landmark 'The Keep', the remains of a 14th-century fortress, as well as the main square (Stortorget) with its prominent neo-Gothic Town Hall. Note: Walkways in Elsinore and Kronborg Castle are of cobblestone surfaces. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers. less
