What You Can Expect

Hot Air Balloon Flight over Catalonia

Soar through the skies over Catalonia on a hot-air balloon ride!

Experience a sky-high early morning hot air balloon flight above the gorgeous landscape of Catalonia followed by a celebratory toast and brunch when you land. This hot air balloon experience, including optional upgrades for private flights, longer 2-hour flights, is sure to take your Barcelona trip to new heights. The early morning flight time ensures the optimal conditions, as the temperatures tend to be cooler and the sunrise lighting guarantees amazing views. 

Start your adventure between 6 and 7:30am with a pickup at the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona. Please confirm your exact start time 24 hours before departure, as the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and weight restrictions. Then drive by minivan about 30 minutes outside of the city to the launch field. Before you know it, you're soaring into the air, floating gently on the wind currents as you experience fantastic vistas of the Pyrenees, Montserrat, the Mediterranean, the massifs of Montseny and, depending on visibility, even Barcelona itself.

Then come back to earth, heart still pounding from your exciting ride, for a sparkling wine toast and brunch, during which you'll receive your flight certificate. Have more time or want to experience a private flight? Check out the upgrade options below.

Don't even know where to start. We left Barcelona punctually and we were taken to a city call Vic about a 40 minute drive. Once there we made a quick stop at a small café where we met the other drivers. We took a private ride strongly recommended. Our driver and his anchor were amazing cant remember their names but they both made sure we had a great time. This experience was in my bucket list and I was more than satisfied with the experience. Our tour was on Christmas eve, once we landed they surprised us with a very unique breakfast and drink. Grilled cheese sandwiches cooked with the fire from the hot air balloon right in front of you. Our driver back to Barcelona was also great cant remember her name. Overall we do not have one complain about this tour, loved it, and cant wait to do it again.

I simply loved this. The people who were handling the hot air balloon and the whole tour were extremely friendly and funny. I would recommend this to anyone.

Just that the vehicle used to transport the tourists should allow alot of leg space in the extreme back of the vehicle.

Fantastic! We have gone ballooning a few times and always love it. We had 4 balloons on the day and lots of time in the air. A nice glass of rose cava set it off nicely and the novel way they do the toasted sandwiches was great! The pilots were very friendly and fun.
