We just wanted to have something out of the common stuff, this is it, no hustle no rush. Just a quiet pleasent flight. All the guys involved from the driver to the pilot are beyond nice. A short drive from Barcelona to the country side in matter of 40 minutes we were in a two hour flight, smooth and calm... More

It was definitely a great experience flying over Vic. The flight was smooth and Carlos our pilot was calm and steady, and answered all our questions. The grilled sandwiches and juice after the ride was a nice touch too. However, there are some points that people booking need to know beforehand: 1. The pilots don't know where they are going...

Benjamin and his crew made sure we had a fantastic experience! We felt like family before the trip was over! The scenery was beautiful and serene, but the trip was the best ever thanks to the outstanding treatment we received! Thank you for a most fabulous day!

My husband is scared of heights but I convinced him to do the balloon ride. He and I both loved it! The views are amazing, unlike anything else we've experienced before. The team is so friendly and you can tell they have a passion for what they do. They don't act like co-workers they act like family and they are... More

My girlfriend (now my fiancée) had an amazing day in the sky yesterday. I wanted to do something special to propose to her and had the idea of doing it on a hot-air balloon trip. When we booked our trip to Barcelona I got in touch with Ballooning Barcelona to find out if it was possible. Benjamin and the team... More

My first balloon ride... Thoroughly enjoyed the hot air balloon experience. Collected from central Barcelona. Had an amazing flight, finished off with a cheese toasty and champagne. Brilliant!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
