Full description
Admire Catalonia's natural landscape while cruising in a hot air balloon.

On a clear day, you will be able to see Montserrat, Barcelona, and the Mediterranean sea. Your journey will begin just after dawn when you'll either be picked up at a meeting point in Barcelona or make your own way to the local partner's flying area. Upon reaching the take-off spot you will be able to participate, hands-on, in inflating your hot air balloon! Once in the air, the ride will last for a little more than an hour.

    The ride itself was excellent and the guys were nice. The only negative part was waiting for the balloon to be dismantled and put back into the truck. And when they asked us to help them push it in and hold the bag was not so great because everything was very dusty. It would have been nice if they had told us how long we would be waiting or even better, let us get into the car to wait while they put the balloon away.

    Amazing experience! Very organised! Highly recommended!

    I was on my own, but met a group outside the Hard Rock Cafe. We were picked up at 6am and driven in a very nice mini bus (with air-con) to a cafe on the outskirts of Barcelona. We had a 10 min break and got some breakfast. Then we were driven to a field, where the balloons were been blown up. We watched the team prepare the balloons and took plenty of pictures, then we all climed into the basket and we were off. The group I was in did not speak English, but luckily one of the group could speak English and translated for me. The views were amazing, we went over a town on the outskirts of Barcelona near the mountains. We were in the air for over an hour. We landed in a field, and one of the team met us there in his 4x4. We helped pack the balloon away. Then we were driven back to the original balloon field. We were given some brunch and cava, as well as a certificate. We were then driven back to Barcelona and dropped back off outside the Hard Rock Cafe. Highly recommended!

    Surprising, safe and super beautiful

    Even if we had to get up very early, it paid of in the end. They picked us up, and we went to the spot. We helped out unpacking the balloon, and it was quite fun! As we went up in the air, it just got more and more beautiful. We helped packing down the balloon and got some sandwiches and the nicest cava. They made us feel safe all the Way, and they were really nice!
