The ADVENTURE BALLOON RIDE invites you to live a different and amazing balloon experience over Catalonia landscapes. You will discover, from the sky, the countryside of Catalonia, beautiful valleys and emerald forests, between Barcelona and the Pyrenees mountains. You will be floating in the air during 2 hours, a much longer flight in duration than the other standard balloon tours, and finish the adventure with a brunch in a typical Catalonian restaurant. The concept is to head to the take off site according to the weather forecast, for that reason we will keep secret the launch field until last moment .... this is real adventure !
Activity description : the activity starts at dawn with the picking up of the passengers at the meeting point. Then, the passengers are transferred in our 4WD vehicle to the take off site. Once there, the passengers can help the ballooning team to prepare and inflate the hot air balloon. When the balloon is up, we take off for a 2 hours balloon flight. The wind is the master of our way up the Catalonian landscapes. During the flight, passengers can enjoy a cup of Cava champagne. The landing marks the end of our ride. The "chase crew" comes to collect the balloon and the passengers, then transfers everybody to a local restaurant and have a brunch. To finish passengers will receive their first flight certificate signed by the pilot.
Duration of the activity : the whole activity lasts a complete morning, with a balloon flight of 2 hours in duration.
Flying hours : the balloon ride starts in the early morning and ends around noon. Exact time is set according to the flying season.
Days of activity : we operate all year long. The adventure balloon ride formula is operated mainly the week-end, but also any day of the week. Just contact us in order to know the availabilities.Go up
The exact flying area will be kept secret until last moment, but in order for you to have an idea of what you will see from the balloon, also according to pilot´s mood and vagary of the weather, hereafter a piece of famous points of interest : Pla de Busa, the Parador de Vic, the Lluçanès valley area, the surrounding of Manresa, Montserrat mountain, the Sierra del Cadí, the Parador of Cardona, surrounding of Berga city in the pre-Pyrenees, Osona area, Bages area, Montseny Natural Park and even more.

Location : central Catalonia, located
50min / 70km north from Barcelona. GPS : N 41º55´46´´ E
Flying season : In Catalonia, it is possible to fly all year long. In fact, flying in winter offers some interesting advantages for the passengers: the weather is generally more stable what allows a longer flight and you can get up later as dawn takes place later in the morning.
Good weather conditions for a good flight : hot-air ballooning is an activity depending directly with the weather conditions. To ensure the flight, we absolutely need to have weak winds (less than 20 kmph) and no rain. In case of unsuitable weather conditions we would postpone the flight to another day.
Restrictions : a hot-air balloon ride is a very safe activity but in order for our passengers to avoid running any risk, we advise pregnant women and children under 6 not to fly.Go up
