I had arranged a surprise for my partners birthday present, while the hot air balloon ride was pleasant the landing was not. We crashed 3 times into trees and the 'pilot' although apologetic became flustered. We finally landed, where the police and ambulance turned up. We were then told it was the 'pilots' first day. This delayed the whole thing... More

We were rather disappointed with the flight because we didn't start off in the Montseny Natural Park as mentioned on the site (because of the wind, or lack of it?) but a little more up North in Vic, which isn't a very nice area. We flew mostly over industrial & farmers buildings. The pilot was very nice and able though... More

We spent a marvelous morning cruising above the Catalan countryside with Ballooning Barcelona. So glad we opted for the two-hour trip; the one-hour would not have been sufficient to savor the full experience. We enjoyed co-pilots Nick and Benjamin’s company. They were attentive, professional, informative, and something all guides should take to heart, they did not feel the need to... More

Taking you back in time, you forget civilization and just let yourself go to where the wind might want to take you to and the instructions of the more than experienced & professional pilot/team...I would do it again in a second if I could! Congratulations and thanks for sharing your passion with such enthusiasm, this country side of Catalunya is... More

If a hot air balloon ride is on your bucket list, then this is a must. We left early on a Monday morning and drove to Vic, Spain. A nice cool morning perfect for a balloon ride. We had 8 people plus the pilot in our balloon. It was a smooth ascending up to 5000 ft. Picturesque views of the... More

We went as a family of 4 for a balloon ride. The name of the enterprise is Globu Bolg and its owner is mr Angel we thoroughly enjoyed our experience as the staff was very courteous and professional. It is a must experience for visitors to barcelona... A fantastic one of a kind experience.

We had such a great time with Josep and Tomas ballooning! I was a little nervous initially because I am not a fan of heights but once we were up there it felt great. Josep was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us some tips on things to do in the area while we were there. Tomas was a... More

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.
