Costa Brava: Hot Air Balloon Flight

1. Costa Brava: Hot Air Balloon Flight

Discover the l’Empordà, Costa Brava region from the air in a balloon ride shared with other passengers. Admire the beauty of the scenery with the relaxing tranquility of a hot air balloon.

The flight will take off at 6.45 AM from the traditional village of Colomers. Upon arrival, the crew will welcome you and give you a brief safety demonstration before jumping into the basket.

La Garrotxa Volcanoes Half-Day Hot Air Balloon Flight

2. La Garrotxa Volcanoes Half-Day Hot Air Balloon Flight

Glide with the breeze over the Natural Park of La Garrotxa, located between the Pyrenees and Costa Brava, and discover from the sky how the volcanoes of Catalonia are a paradise for nature lovers. The half-day tour lasts approximately 5 hours, with about 1.5 hours flying time, and baskets for those with reduced mobility are available, including 3-door baskets that are suitable for the elderly. See how the landscape was shaped by volcanic activity in a way that is simply not possible from the ground. You will cruise over charming valleys, thick oak forests, and tiny villages settled on the top of towering cliffs. Experience the silence that only a hot air balloon ride can offer, with 360-degree views all around you. Sip a glass of Cava and enjoy a local pancake as the breeze and your pilot navigate the route, subject to the whims of Mother Nature! The balloon is constantly monitored by a 4WD car that will be ready to pick you up on landing. Then, it’s back to the launch facilities, where you will celebrate your balloon experience with a typical country breakfast of pa amb tomàquet (bread and tomato), cold cured sausage and beans from Santa Pau, roasted sausage, Catalan wine, and a glass of the local ratafia liquor.

What people are saying about Girona

Fantastic experience! We got to the meeting point at 7 a.m. and were offered a small cake with coffee before our flight while watching our balloon getting inflated, which was an incredible experience itself. Our flight was about 1 hour and 50 mins. Surprisingly calm and peaceful experience. Went up high and down the valley. The view of the sea and the snowed Pyrenees was breathtaking. During our flight we had a few glasses of Cava and a traditional cake. A nice lunch was also served after our flight. Our guide was very informative, funny and we felt incredibly safe (considering that you are in a floating basket!).Highly recommended!

Incredible experience

I am afraid of heights and our pilot Pepe made me feel extremely safe. The base is absolutely stunning, and allowed us to get comfortable before the flight. As we got in the air he explained all of the sites and points we were looking at, and had an extremely smooth landing 1.5h later. It did get extremely hot so I recommend wearing light clothes, as well as bringing your own water bottle up. We landed and had a short drive back to base where we were prepared a lovely breakfast with many options - I am gluten free and was able to eat a lot - and overall would recommend this 100% to all.

Very nice experience in a hot air balloon well organized, surrounded by very friendly people who ended with a super "breakfast" more than generous made with artisanal products. I recommend this tour.

Such a great experience, I really cannot recommend it enough! The team is really friendly and knowledgeable.

A great experience, recommended

In addition to the balloon flight, which is a pass, lunch is spectacular and the treatment is unbeatable.
