There is no better way to experience the magnificence of Catalonia and its most representative mountain, Montserrat, than from the air. Experience an amazing hot air balloon flight near Barcelona with Globus Kon-Tiki.
Barcelona is a beautiful city that offers many options, yet just an hour drive from the city, you'll find Montserrat overlooking Barcelona. Montserrat is Barcelona's outdoor stamp attracting adventure enthusiasts looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Most people get to know this beautiful mountain on a hiking trip, why not try something different?
Globus Kon-Tiki offers you the chance of experiencing Montserrat in an unconventional and peaceful way, from the skies on a hot air balloon. Hot air balloon flights are something everyone should do at least once in a lifetime. The experience starts from the moment you arrive at the meeting point. Early in the morning, as the sun starts to rise, you'll witness the balloon's set up. The crew will lay out the gigantic balloon on the ground and then blow into the air with a fan. Once the balloon has expanded, they will turn on the burners and start heating the air coming into the balloon until the balloon can stand up.
Once the balloon is ready, you'll hop into the basket for a flight of around 1 hour and 15 min. depending on the weather conditions. From the air and depending on where you take off from, you'll get to witness Montserrat's north or south face.
The hot air balloon flight taking off from Manresa option will allow you to fly over Pla del Bages where the Pyrenees start witnessing Montserrat's northern face.
The second option, taking off from Igualada, will take you to the skies over Conca d'Odena, where millions of years ago was a lake, and you'll witness the southern side of Montserrat.
While you're in the air, the ground crew will follow you on 4x4 vehicles that will also drive you back to the meeting point. Once you've landed, you'll have a sparkling wine toast and receive a certificate that makes you part of the hot air balloon flyers community!
