HOT AIR BALLOON (THE PRIVATE/VIP BALLOON RIDE)

HOT AIR BALLOON (THE PRIVATE/VIP BALLOON RIDE)

THE PRIVATE/VIP BALLOON RIDE 

The Private / VIP balloon ride option allows you to enjoy the flight with more intimacy. Flying alone, in couple or with friends, the balloon is completely yours. Being only 2 passengers in the basket will give you the opportunity to be taught by the pilot the basis of how to pilot a hot-air balloon and eventually the opportunity to pilot it yourself for a while. In that case, you will fly in a small-sized balloon, the kind of balloon used in competition, much more agile and dynamic than a normal passenger balloon.

THE FLIGHT PROGRAM

 

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.

DURATION OF ACTIVITY

  • The whole activity lasts half a day, including an 1 hour of balloon flight.

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 private balloon ride formula is operated any day of the week, the week-end and on bank holidays.

LOCATION FOR ACTIVITY

  • Hot-air balloon over the Vallès Oriental / Montseny

  • We invite you to experience the adventure in the Vallès Oriental, at only 30 minutes away from Barcelona. Taking off from Cardedeu, you will discover from the air amazing panoramas and landscapes, flying over unique points of interest in the Montseny Natural Park region. By clear sky, you will have the opportunity to admire the Montserrat picks, Barcelona itself and the Mediterranean sea.

HOT-AIR BALLOON OVER OSONA/VIC 

  • We invite you to experience the adventure in the Osona region, taking off from Vic. When flying at low altitude, you will discover the historical city centre of Vic from the sky. When reaching 3.000 feet, you will have the unique opportunity to discover a complete panorama of the region, the majestic Pyrenees’ mountains, the Montserrat rocs and the Montseny mountain

USEFUL INFORMATION 

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.
