HOT AIR BALLOON (THE DISCOVERY BALLOON RIDE)

HOT AIR BALLOON (THE DISCOVERY BALLOON RIDE)

THE DISCOVERY BALLOON RIDE 

With the discovery balloon ride, you share the flight with a maximum of 8 people in the basket. You live the adventure in family, friends or others passengers. The basket is big enough to make you feel at ease and totally secure. It is the ideal option for a first hot-air balloon flight, with a good price.

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 THE 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. We concentrate the flights on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. We can also operate a balloon flight on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday if we have a booking of minimum 4 participants, or for a group, or for the passengers who have chosen the "private" balloon flight option.

LOCATION OF THE ACTIVITY

  • 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 ...

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.
