About this experience

The ADVENTURE BALLOON RIDE invites you to live a different and amazing balloon experience over Catalonia landscapes. You will discover, from the sky, the countryside of Catalonia, beautiful valleys and emerald forests, between Barcelona and the Pyrenees mountains. You will be floating in the air during 2 hours, a much longer flight in duration than the other standard balloon tours, and finish the adventure with a brunch in a typical Catalonian restaurant. The concept is to head to the take off site according to the weather forecast, for that reason we will keep secret the launch field until last moment .... this is real adventure !

Overview

Activity's description

The activity starts at dawn with the picking up of the passengers at the meeting point. Then, the passengers are transferred in our 4WD vehicle to the take off site. Once there, the passengers can help the ballooning team to prepare and inflate the hot air balloon. When the balloon is up, we take off for a 2 hour balloon flight. The wind is the master of our way up the Catalonian landscapes. During the flight, passengers can enjoy a cup of Cava champagne. The landing marks the end of our ride. The "chase crew" comes to collect the balloon and the passengers, then transfers everybody to a local restaurant and have a brunch. To finish passengers will receive their first flight certificate signed by the pilot.

Days of activity

We operate all year long on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We can operate any day if we have a minimum of 4 participants or for those who decide to book the "private" balloon flight option.

Duration of the experience

We operate one flight per day, by the morning only, just after sunrise. Starting time varies according to season, on summer at 6:00 am and winter at 8:00 am. The whole activity lasts 4 hours in total, including up to 2 hour in flight.

Useful information

Flying season

In Catalonia, it is possible to fly all year long. In fact, flying in winter offers some interesting advantages for the passengers: the weather is generally more stable what allows a longer flight and you can get up later as dawn takes place later in the morning.

Good weather condition for a good flight

Hot-air ballooning is weather dependent. To ensure the flight, we absolutely need to have weak winds (less than 20 kmph) and no rain. In case of unsuitable weather conditions we would offer to passengers alternatives dates.

Restriction

A hot-air balloon ride is a very safe activity but in order for our passengers to avoid running any risk, we advise pregnant women and children under 6 not to fly.
