What You Can Expect

Hot-Air Balloon Flight Over Catalonia with Pick-up from Barcelona

Hot-air balloon ride over Catalonia

Start your adventure between 6 and 7:30 a.m. 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. The early morning flight time ensures the optimal conditions, as the temperatures tend to be cooler and the sunrise lighting guarantees amazing views. 

After your flight, come back to earth 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.

2-Hour Upgrade
Select the 2-hour flight and spend longer in the air, feeling the air move you around. The itinerary is not set, so where you fly is dependent on weather conditions on the day; it’s a great option for adventurous souls who want the wild freedom of being up in the air at an altitude of more than 7,500 feet (2,285 meters). 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.

Private Upgrade

Upgrade to a private flight and enjoy an intimate hot-air balloon ride for up to eight 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.

What an amazing experience! My husband and I booked a private flight for my birthday and enjoyed every minute of it. The hosts were friendly and took great care of us. We ended the flight with a champagne toast and brunch at a local restaurant. A memorable experience that we will never forget. I highly recommend. Dress warm.

This experience was so wonderful we would highly recommend it. It was easy to meet the group, and they transported us to a cafe where we could grab breakfast / use restrooms. Then it was to the field for hot air ballooning. The guides were so friendly, willing to take photos, and spoke great English. The flight was approximately 1-1.5 hours and you get gorgeous views and get quite high. I'd recommend this for couples, and family with older kids - very little ones probably won';t dig the heights. The post picnic was also very nice and accommodating - they will have gluten free options if you request.

Best day ever. This is a forever memory! I booked a private hot air balloon flight for my son (17) and me. We had the most incredible experience ever. Jordi, our pilot was the best! He is so skilled, and very kind, social, and funny. He took amazing photos for us too. Charlie who assisted with the balloon and picked us up was great too. We had the most amazing, beautiful sights with the sun coming up and being above the clouds for a while. The four of us had lunch together afterward and felt like old friends. I highly recommend a private, 2 hour flight with Jordi. It’s truly breathtaking and fun!

Awesome experience. I highly recommend. The staff was friendly and the ride was peaceful. Dress warm, it's much cooler there than in the city. Keep in mind your lunch is right where you land, sandwiches heated on the balloon fire.

Fantastic. As with anything like this it's weather dependant. We had a cloudy day which limited some visibility but the experience was amazing. The crew were very professional about what they do and jovial throughout. We finished our month tour with this as a highlight. From picking us up on time to sharing their lunch break with us this trip and this crew were fantastic. Would highly recommend it and as it's one of those things you don't do every day take the 2 hour option!!
