Balloon Ride

Description

We invite you to experience the adventure in the Valles Oriental, at only 30 minutes away from Barcelona. Taking off in Cardedeu, you will discover from the air amazing panoramas and landscapes, flying over unique points of interest in the Montseny Natural Park region. On a clear day (and we have many of those), you will have the opportunity to admire the Montserrat peaks, Barcelona itself and the Mediterranean Sea...

The Discovery Balloon Ride: Share the Discovery Balloon Ride, with a maximum of 8 people in the basket. You live the adventure in family, friends or others passengers. The basket is big enough to make you feel at ease and totally secure. It is the ideal option for a first hot-air balloon flight, with a good price.

Option - Transfer from and to Barcelona city: for a better service, we offer transfer in our vehicle from Barcelona city center to the flying area, at very low additional cost, pick up and return.

Itinerary

Activity description

The activity starts at dawn with the picking up of the passengers at the meeting point. Then, the passengers have the opportunity to help during the preparation of the flight: the setting and inflation of the balloon. When the balloon is up, we take off for a ride which will last more than an hour. The wind is the master of our way up the Catalonian landscapes. The landing marks the end of our ride. The "chase crew" comes to collect the balloon and the passengers. Then we all come back to the launchfield and celebrate the balloon experience with a Cava toast and a surprising special brunch. To finish passengers will eventually receive a first flight certificate signed by the pilot.

Location : Cardedeu is located 30min / 39km north from Barcelona.
