Getting up early for a sunrise flight guarantees breathtaking views; it's the best time for flying as the cool and serene ambiance adds to this balloon adventure! Your balloon takes off close by to Montseny Natural Park in Cardedeu, roughly 25 miles (40 km) north of Barcelona and is the nearest take-off site from the city.

After pickup from the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona, travel by minivan for approximately half an hour, and then watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated at the launch field. Then, you're up, up and away! While floating through the air, enjoy panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean Sea, Montserrat, the massifs of Montseny and, sometimes, even Barcelona itself. On landing, enjoy a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.

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.

These people don't play! If they tell you to BE at the meeting point at 6am, you better be there or look like getting left! LOL! Nobody in our group got left, they were prompt in picking us up at the meeting point which I liked and the van to and from was air conditioned and comfortable. They stopped for coffee and croissant since it was so early and were timely at getting us to the hot air ballon destination. I was nervous and the guide reassured me all would be well. They took plenty of pictures at our request and the balloon operator was taking pictures for and of us as well when we asked. I loved the smooth landing and scenic views from the top. We had grilled cheese from the hot air on the balloon and it was the BEST grill cheese sandwich I've ever had in my life! I forgot what kind of cheese they used! Never had it before. We also had wine I had abut 4 cups LOL! and it was a memory of a lifetime! If you don't do ANYTHING else, YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TOUR! IT IS A MUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was absolutely fantastic. The experience of a lifetime. The company is a small business and provides personalized service. It attracts an interesting group of people. We met a couple who have become great friends. We met people from Australia and Canada as well.
