Marvel at beautiful landmarks like Montserrat and the Pyrenees Mountains as you climb to heights of up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) during your 1- to 1.5-hour flight. Then head back down to earth for brunch with sparkling wine. Your hot-air balloon flight also includes a certificate, plus you can upgrade for a longer 2-hour or private flight.

This was a first for my husband and I and we loved it. Our guides and pilot were wonderful and made the experience good in every way. I would recommend them without hesitation. This tour was a wonderful lifetime experience.

Awesome biew !! Great ballooning experience!! You should definitely take a balloon!! 7時に集合し、バルセロナ〜カルデデウ村までは約1時間。途中の峠(?)越えでは濃霧で、本当にフライトできるのか?なんて思ってましたが乗り場に着くエリアは快晴! 気球を見かけた下の方が手を振り返してくれたり、街がミニチュアのように見えたり… とても素敵な体験になりました!朝〜昼頃までの時間を取れるのであればぜひ!

Dear Rene. It's always a difficult decision to cancel a flight. But as you know, this activity is weather dependent, so it can happen. Weather forecast was OK but this is not an exact science... Experimented pilots present on that day decided not to take...More
