Pick up was prompt at 6am, then, with one quick stop for a coffee, they drove us to the place called Vic and the preparation began! So we were witnessing all the work done before the flight. Once we actually took off the ground, there were very mixed feeling, but most of it was a real excitement! As we were... More

All went as planned. We were picked up outside of our hotel in the early morning and went to the morning balloon launch site. It was a short drive outside of the city. Filling the balloon was a fairly quick process. The weather was calm and warm and we were up in the air in no time. There were 7... More

I gave my boyfriend a VIP balloon ride for his birthday. We were picked up in Barcelona in the morning, and from the very start, the staff was friendly and talkative. We arrived at the take-off spot, and we helped/watched the balloon getting ready. Our pilot was Nicolas, and he made sure we had the best ride. We flew up... More

It was a full pleasure to share this balloon experience with you, also flying so high is not very common in this area but on that day we had perfect weather conditions for a full panoramic view over Catalonia countryside, Pyrenees mountains, Barcelona itself and even the Costa Brava. Thanks again for your kind words. More

An early morning experience for those who dare to float up in the air to the mercy of meteorology. The maximum 8 people group can be an amazing mix of nationalities, ages, and experiences.

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.
