Soar above the sublime landscape of Catalonia near Barcelona on this early-morning hot-air balloon excursion. Marvel at beautiful landmarks like Montserrat and the Pyrenees Mountains as you climb to heights of up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) during your 1- to 1.5-hour flight. Then head back down to earth for brunch with sparkling wine. Your hot-air balloon flight also includes a certificate, plus you can upgrade for a longer 2-hour or private flight.
  • Enjoy panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean, and Montserrat
  • Conclude the flight with a snack and Champagne toast
  • Receive a personalized flight certificate after touching down
  • Upgrade to enjoy a private hot-air balloon flight with your personal group of up to eight people
Start your adventure 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. On landing, you will be served a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.

Wow! This trip was spectacular. My first experience on a hot air balloon definitely met my expectations. The flight crew was exceptional. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I assumed the balloon would be inflated and ready upon arrival. Happily it wasn’t and you got to see how the ballon is inflated and assembled. The take off was smooth and the views spectacular. Literally floating in the clouds with no cares in the world. The landing was just as smooth as the takeoff. Nice treat of cava and ballon fire made toasted sandwiches!! So glad we did this!! I highly recommend this tour. Happy floating.

Was great! The van showed up outside of the Hard Rock Cafe at just about 7, so don't worry if the van's not there when you arrive! Everyone was great and we had the best time.

Hola :) Thank you so much for your review

This is one of my top experiences. We got lucky with the weather, we had a beautiful sunny day, and our balloon trip was really amazing. We also loved that we started from the very early preparation of the balloon itself, and it was fun to help the staff at the end to put everything away. By the way, the staff is great, nice, funny, and extremely prepared. If I may suggest, when you book the flight, have the chance to change day, it all depends on the weather, and there might be the need to postpone the trip.

This trip was definitely a good choice. Having had hot air ballooning as, part of my bucket list, I was grateful to have ecp in Barcelona. The views were very impressive. The trip ended with a toast of champagne and a brunch of grilled cheese sandwiches.

Thank you for flying with us and your nice message.

I was a bit skeptical of how this tour would go, but it was perfect for us. We did it on our last day in Europe, and it was one of the most peaceful/beautiful sights. The weather was perfect, barely a breeze at all, so we just quietly floated across farmland and small towns. The pick up was easy, our drivers were quiet at 630 am which was great :) then we got a great breakfast and made it the air balloon by 8am. Our balloon driver Santi was informative, funny and nice. This has always been on my bucket list and the group tour was an affordable way to do it. The breakfast and cava at the end was also nice. Definitely recommend!

This trip was everything I hoped it would be and more! Serenely floating over a beautiful Spanish town and then over the countryside with views of the snow topped Pyrenees in the distance! Ending with a glass or 2 of Cava, it was a magical experience that I would definitely recommend! Thank you Tomas and Vic!!
