Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and experience a combination of adventure, relaxation and culture with this very special offer. Your unforgettable day begins with a hot-air balloon ride during which you will have the chance to admire the unique landscape of Catalonia from the air. But that's not the end of your adventure: it is followed by a traditional Catalan breakfast and an exclusive tour, during which you can discover Montserrat and the Benedictine Monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat with a private guide.
This balloon ride starts in Santpedor in the Bages 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 Santpedor with its historic buildings, green fields and mountains on the horizon. On a clear day, you can even see the Montseny, Montserrat and Pyrenees mountain ranges. In good weather conditions, we can ascend even higher and see as far as the coast and Barcelona.
- Before take-off:
We meet at your hotel in Barcelona at the agreed time. From here we make our way to the starting point in Santpedor, 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, sip cava, 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 Santpedor. 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. Afterwards, we will make our way to Monserrat, the "magic mountain", where you will get a private tour of the famous monastery. At the end of the day, we will take you back to Barcelona.
