Tibidabo Hiking Walking Barcelona from Park Güell

con 18 comentarios

Welcome to Tibidabo Hiking Walking Barcelona 🙂

You are here because YOU WANT TO HIKE FROM BARCELONA TO TIBIDABO.

As you don't have a GPS with you, here you have these very easy to follow ‘old school’ directions to hike on your own to the summit of Tibidabo.

The starting point is Vallcarca Metro Station, which is very close to Park Güell

It's a 4 km excursion, with 400 meters gain elevation.

You will walk the first 2 km in urban areas and the last 2 km through the forest.

Expect to find some STEEP TRAILS.

It's vital to be in very good shape.

Take it easy, bring some water and appropiate clothes and shoes

***Remember there are some other options to get there on foot, but this one is the easiest to follow without GPS and it's a nice combination of trails and tracks. Other routes are softer, but longer, and they use some open traffic roads. And there are some other shortcuts, but then the route is difficult to follow and becomes extremely steep.

    We did it yesterday, although we started at the metro station at the John F. Kennedy Plaza. It was great! Your instructions were perfect. The view was fantastic, and we heard many dogs barking at one point, which we later learned came from the oldest dog pound in the city. Thank you!
