Change things up on your city trip and escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona on a balloon ride. The Globus Barcelona team will pick you up right in the city centre, so that you can just lean back and enjoy a relaxing day. With your experienced balloon pilot you take off and float over the green landscape of Catalonia, which is filled with the light of the morning sun. We speak from experience: There is no better way to start the day than with a ride in one of our hot air balloons.
Our balloon trips take place in Vic in the Osona region not far from Barcelona. Here, the conditions for ballooning are perfect all year round and the surroundings offer fantastic views.
From above you have an unrestricted view of the pretty town of Vic with its historic buildings, green fields and the mountains in the background. On a clear day, you can even see the mountain ranges of Montseny, Montserrat and the Pyrenees. In good weather conditions, we can ascend even higher and see as far as the coast and the city of Barcelona.
- Before take-off:
We meet at the agreed time at the Hard Rock Cafe in the centre of Barcelona. From here we start our way to the starting point in Vic, which is about 50 minutes away by car. After a short introduction, you are invited to help us prepare the balloon. As soon as the balloon has been set up, you will climb into the basket with your certified pilot and get ready to take off.
- During the ride:
After take-off, you can enjoy the view from the balloon basket, take photos and just relax. Your pilot will be happy to tell you all you need to know about the surroundings and ballooning. During the whole trip, the pilot is in radio contact with the ground crew who will follow you to a suitable landing site.
- After landing:
At the landing site, we pack up the balloon before we make our way back to the meeting point. We then have breakfast in a traditional Catalan restaurant, where we also take a look at the photos of your adventure. As a final highlight, we toast with cava to celebrate your first balloon flight in a traditional way. Each participant will also receive a certificate as a souvenir. Of course, we will take you back to Barcelona at the end of your adventure.
