HOT AIR BALLOON (THE GROUP/INCENTIVE BALLOON RIDE)
THE GROUP/INCENTIVE BALLOON RIDE
The "Group / Incentive / Corporate" balloon flight option offers the opportunity to realize a hot-air balloon ride with as many person as you want. We deal with all the details of the flight, from transportation to gathering the necessary hot-air balloon fleet and professional pilots or any particular details you would ask for to organize a particular balloon ride fitting with your own desires and needs. We offer 2 flying areas close to Barcelona city accessible by car and bus transportation. This is the perfect option for small and big groups, to celebrate a special event, for a team building or to incentive your companies' employees. We can organize the activity for groups from 9 up to 200 persons.
The activity starts in the early morning 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. To finish, passengers will eventually receive a first flight certificate signed by the pilot.
DURATION OF THE ACTIVITY
The whole activity lasts half a day, including an 1 hour of balloon flight.
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 GROUP flight can be operated any day between Monday to Sunday, according to suitable weather conditions and availabilities.
LOCATION OF THE ACTIVITY
Hot-air balloon flight over the Vallès Oriental / Montseny
We recommend this flying area for small groups, up to 25 participants. The Vallès Oriental / Montseny area is located at only 30 minutes away from Barcelona city. From the air, 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 FLIGHT OVER OSANA/VIC
We recommend this flying area for small and big groups up to 250 participants as big buses can easily park there and the launch field is big enough to receive more than 25 balloons at the same time. The Osona / Vic area is located at 50 minutes away from Barcelona. From the air, you will discover the medieval city centre of Vic and a complete panoramic view surrounded by the majestic Pyrenees’ mountains, the Montserrat rocs and the Montseny mountain.
In Catalonia, it is possible to fly equally during summer or winter. 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 THE FLIGHT
Hot-air Ballooning is an activity directly linked 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.
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.
