Know More about this tour

Getting up early for a sunrise flight guarantees breathtaking views; it's the best time for flying as the cool and serene ambiance adds to this balloon adventure! Your balloon takes off close by to Montseny Natural Park, roughly 25 miles (40 km) north of Barcelona and is the nearest take-off site from the city.

After pickup from the Hard rock cafe in Barcelona, travel by minivan for approximately half an hour, and then watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated at the launch field. Then, you're up, up and away! While floating through the air, enjoy panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean Sea, Montserrat, the massifs of Montseny and, sometimes, even Barcelona itself. On landing, enjoy a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.


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; its a great option for adventurous souls who want to simply enjoy 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 Brunch in a local restaurant.


Upgrade to a private/exclusive balloon flight for an experience of a lifetime, and enjoy an intimate hot-air balloon flight 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.

    Wow! This trip was spectacular. My first experience on a hot air balloon definitely met my expectations. The flight crew was exceptional. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I assumed the balloon would be inflated and ready upon arrival. Happily it wasn’t and you got to see how the ballon is inflated and assembled. The take off was smooth and the views spectacular. Literally floating in the clouds with no cares in the world. The landing was just as smooth as the takeoff. Nice treat of cava and ballon fire made toasted sandwiches!! So glad we did this!! I highly recommend this tour. Happy floating.

    Was great! The van showed up outside of the Hard Rock Cafe at just about 7, so don't worry if the van's not there when you arrive! Everyone was great and we had the best time.

    We loved our hot air balloon ride. The driver, pilot and assistant were all so courteous and informative. The company did everything to make our experience exceed out expectations. We highly recommend this become part of any Barcelona tourist’s itinerary. Locals would enjoy the flight as well, of course.

    This trip was definitely a good choice. Having had hot air ballooning as, part of my bucket list, I was grateful to have ecp in Barcelona. The views were very impressive. The trip ended with a toast of champagne and a brunch of grilled cheese sandwiches.

    This trip was everything I hoped it would be and more! Serenely floating over a beautiful Spanish town and then over the countryside with views of the snow topped Pyrenees in the distance! Ending with a glass or 2 of Cava, it was a magical experience that I would definitely recommend! Thank you Tomas and Vic!!

    What an amazing experience! My husband and I booked a private flight for my birthday and enjoyed every minute of it. The hosts were friendly and took great care of us. We ended the flight with a champagne toast and brunch at a local restaurant. A memorable experience that we will never forget. I highly recommend. Dress warm.

    This experience was so wonderful we would highly recommend it. It was easy to meet the group, and they transported us to a cafe where we could grab breakfast / use restrooms. Then it was to the field for hot air ballooning. The guides were so friendly, willing to take photos, and spoke great English. The flight was approximately 1-1.5 hours and you get gorgeous views and get quite high. I'd recommend this for couples, and family with older kids - very little ones probably won';t dig the heights. The post picnic was also very nice and accommodating - they will have gluten free options if you request.

    Best day ever. This is a forever memory! I booked a private hot air balloon flight for my son (17) and me. We had the most incredible experience ever. Jordi, our pilot was the best! He is so skilled, and very kind, social, and funny. He took amazing photos for us too. Charlie who assisted with the balloon and picked us up was great too. We had the most amazing, beautiful sights with the sun coming up and being above the clouds for a while. The four of us had lunch together afterward and felt like old friends. I highly recommend a private, 2 hour flight with Jordi. It’s truly breathtaking and fun!
