Soar above the sublime landscape of Catalonia near Barcelona on this early-morning hot-air balloon excursion. Marvel at beautiful landmarks like Montserrat and the Pyrenees Mountains as you climb to heights of up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) during your 1- to 1.5-hour flight. Then head back down to earth for brunch with sparkling wine. Your hot-air balloon flight also includes a certificate, plus you can upgrade for a longer 2-hour or private flight.
What to Expect
Start your adventure between 6 and 7:30 a.m. with a pickup at the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona. Please confirm your exact start time 24 hours before departure, as the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions and weight restrictions.

Then drive by minivan about 30 minutes outside of the city to the launch field. Before you know it, you're soaring into the air, floating gently on the wind currents as you experience fantastic vistas of the Pyrenees, Montserrat, the Mediterranean, the massifs of Montseny and, depending on visibility, even Barcelona itself. The early morning flight time ensures the optimal conditions, as the temperatures tend to be cooler and the sunrise lighting guarantees amazing views. 

After your flight, come back to earth for a sparkling wine toast and brunch, during which you'll receive your flight certificate. Have more time or want to experience a private flight? Check out the upgrade options below.

2-Hour Upgrade
Select the 2-hour flight and spend longer in the air, feeling the air move you around. The itinerary is not set, so where you fly is dependent on weather conditions on the day; it’s a great option for adventurous souls who want the wild freedom of being up in the air at an altitude of more than 7,500 feet (2,285 meters). Enjoy a snack and a glass of cava during your flight and admire beautiful views of deep and wild Catalonian landscape. At the end of your tour, enjoy a typical Catalonian breakfast in a local restaurant.

Private Upgrade
Upgrade to a private flight and enjoy an intimate hot-air balloon ride for up to eight people over Catalonia. Why share with strangers? This private balloon ride is for just your party and your pilot, so relax as you enjoy the tranquility of gently floating up to 3,000 feet (900 meters) above Catalonia. On landing, you will be served a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.

Flight canceled last minute

Disappointed that our flight was canceled after we woke up super early on vacation and drove an hour outside of Barcelona. They said it was too windy, which is understandable - we knew cancelation was a possibility. It's just a shame they couldn't have figured...More

Amazing experience! Definitely recommend

Early start to the day, but the bus ride was well worth the views of Catalonia! The snack and glass of cava at the end were a nice addition.

We went at the end of May and had to use a sweater. I imagine it may be colder in November. Be wary of the weather conditions, our flight was delayed due to heavy fog that morning (they were even considering cancelling), but... More
