Overview
Soar above Catalonia’s ancient dormant volcanoes on a thrilling hot air balloon ride over the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. Soak up panoramic views that stretch as far as the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees on a clear day as the winds carry you up to 6,500 feet (1981 meters) in the air. Sip pink cava and enjoy the spectacular silence during the 1.5-hour flight. After landing, cap off the unforgettable morning with a traditional Catalonian hot breakfast.

What a fantastic experience we had in this hot air balloon. This is a rural family run business that is highly professional and well organised. As a family of four we had an amazing time and totally enjoyed it from beginning to end. Highly recommended.
