Balloon Flight over Catalonia - 2 Hour with Brunch and Transportation
Balloon Flight 2 Hour
We invite you to live a different and amazing balloon experience over Catalonia landscapes. You will discover, from the sky, the countryside of Catalonia, beautiful valleys and emerald forests, between Barcelona and the Pyrenees mountains. You will be floating in the air during 2 hours, a much longer flight in duration than the other standard balloon tours, and finish the adventure with a brunch in a typical Catalonian restaurant.
The concept is to head to the take off site according to the weather forecast, for that reason we will keep secret the launch field until last moment !
The activity starts at dawn with the picking up YOU at the meeting point. Then you are transferred in our 4WD vehicle to the take off site. Once there, you can help the ballooning team to prepare and inflate the hot air balloon.
When the balloon is up, you take off for a 2 hours balloon flight. The wind is the master of our way up the Catalonian landscapes. During the flight, you can enjoy a cup of Cava champagne. The landing marks the end of our ride. The ""chase crew"" comes to collect the balloon and tou, then transfers everybody to a local restaurant and have a brunch. To finish you will receive their first flight certificate signed by the pilot.
The activity includes:
• Flight organization, the ballooning team (pilot+crew member).
• Third party insurance according to European law Nº785/2004.
• Briefing, preparation and inflation of the balloon.
• Hot air balloon flight of approx. 2 hours in duration.
• Cava toast and soft drinks on board.
• Landing, balloon and passengers recovery by the chase crew.
• Transfer in 4WD vehicle from and to meeting point in Vic city.
• Brunch in a typical local restaurant.
• Delivery of first flight certificates signed by the pilot.
Option: transfer from Barcelona city, pick up and drop off from Plaza Catalonia
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.
Child Age: 6-12
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.
