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.

Have more time free?

Enjoy a snack and a glass of cava during your flight and admire beautiful views of deep and wild Catalonian landscape. At the end of your tour, enjoy a typical Catalonian breakfast in a local restaurant.

Always dreamed of a taking a private hot air balloon flight?
Upgrade to a private balloon flight for an experience of a lifetime, and enjoy an intimate hot-air balloon flight for up to 8 people over Catalonia. Why share with strangers? This private balloon ride is for just your party and your pilot, so relax as you enjoy the tranquility of gently floating up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) above Catalonia. On landing, you will be served a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.

I had this in my bucket list and happy I did it in Spain. Loved the experience, the event was very well planned and organized. Would recommend any of my friends to do it. :P

Constructive feedback to give, we were advised would have food prior the event, therefore we didnt prepare anything. When we arrived to the cafeteria, there was only coffee and a machine with candy. I think it should be advised to people to bring at least some snacks since they are not offered at the cafeteria. Honesty is the best policy!

For a first time balloon passenger this was a fantastic experience. Prompt and convenient pick-up was followed by a short drive out of the city for pre-flight coffee then on to the launch site. Pilots were all efficient, polite and friendly and the whole morning was an absolute delight. I highly recommend this activity to anyone with a half day to fill in Barcelona.

By far one of the best experiences of our lives! Seeing the sun rise over the mountains in Catalonia was breathtaking.

The ballooning company were professional and friendly. The pick up and return service from Barcelona made the experience hassle-free.

Great tour! Our driver, Josep, was very funny and gave us an interesting tour on our way out of the city. Our pilot, Benjamin, was competent and interesting to be with. We had a wonderful and amazing time. We'd easily do this again!!

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.
