ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION The balloon rides start early in the morning, shortly after sunrise, when the winds are calm. We will meet at the designated launch site or we will collect you in your hotel if we agreed it.We will spread and inflate the balloon. The passengers can take part actively in this activity.When the balloon sail has risen from the ground, we can climb in the basket.The balloon slightly lifts off and the adventure begins. The chase crew will always follow the balloon. We will be in contact with them by radio.While we fly, we will do a toast with cava accompanied of coca, to celebrate the flight.After an hour or more in the air, the pilot will locate a suitable landing site. After the landing we will fold the balloon and the 4X4 chase car will give us a lift to have a good Emporda breakfast.During the breakfast we will deliver you the diplomas of flight and the cd's with the photos that we will have done to you during the morning.The activity will end about the midday, when the 4X4 chase car will return you to the point of origin where you have the car or the hotel.
