I am going to Barcelona in the start of July together with a friend. We have 3 to 4 days (in Barcelona) and we want to see some beautiful nature and the possibility to hike, and we also want to spend as little money as possible. The budget is quite tight.

If there is nothing in Barcelona, we are open to other destinations, as long as it's relatively cheap getting there (train/plane).

Unfortunately one of us will have a 20 kg suitcase, so it would be great if we could have a hotel and then make daily trips.

There are a lot of small towns in the hills north of Barcelona. I had a very nice trip to Banyoles a few years ago, for rowing rather than hiking, but it was cheap + friendly + apparently lots of walking about. Also fairly easy to get to from Barcelona on the bus. I'd suggest you look for places similar to that! – Gagravarr May 13 '13 at 13:50
Mount tibidabo is definitely hikeable. – JoErNanO Jun 26 at 1:21

The nearest one from Barcelona is Sant Llorenç del Munt (30 minutes by car). There is a monastery on the top of the mountain.

Alternatively you can go to Parc Natural del Montseny. (1 hour by car). enter image description here
