Fantastic experience! We got to the meeting point at 7 a.m. and were offered a small cake with coffee before our flight while watching our balloon getting inflated, which was an incredible experience itself. Our flight was about 1 hour and 50 mins. Surprisingly calm and peaceful experience. Went up high and down the valley. The view of the sea and the snowed Pyrenees was breathtaking. During our flight we had a few glasses of Cava and a traditional cake. A nice lunch was also served after our flight. Our guide was very informative, funny and we felt incredibly safe (considering that you are in a floating basket!).Highly recommended!
I am afraid of heights and our pilot Pepe made me feel extremely safe. The base is absolutely stunning, and allowed us to get comfortable before the flight. As we got in the air he explained all of the sites and points we were looking at, and had an extremely smooth landing 1.5h later. It did get extremely hot so I recommend wearing light clothes, as well as bringing your own water bottle up. We landed and had a short drive back to base where we were prepared a lovely breakfast with many options - I am gluten free and was able to eat a lot - and overall would recommend this 100% to all.
Very nice experience in a hot air balloon well organized, surrounded by very friendly people who ended with a super "breakfast" more than generous made with artisanal products. I recommend this tour.
Such a great experience, I really cannot recommend it enough! The team is really friendly and knowledgeable.
In addition to the balloon flight, which is a pass, lunch is spectacular and the treatment is unbeatable.
