4×4 tour in la Garrotxa
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
Live the adventure flying in a balloon and doing a 4x4 tour in la Garrotxa!
CAN MENCIÓ PENSION
This small pension, located in the arched main square of the old village, has 12 double rooms and one family room. All of them has a private bathroom.
Can Menció pension also has a living room with a fireplace and a terrace with views.
Can Menció in Santa Pau does not have a restaurant. However you can go to one of the restaurants in town. There you can taste different typical dishes of volcanic cuisine.
What you will find on the ground floor of the same accommodation is a cafeteria and a pastry shop. It is the only one in Santa Pau and under the shadow of the laps, you can contemplate the Plaza Mayor tasting one of its sandwiches or cakes.
The Can Menció pension is 10 minutes far from our facilities.
The activity begins early in the morning (between 07:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m., according to the season) in Vol de Coloms facilities, next to Croscat volcano.
You enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry meanwhile we are preparing the hot air balloons. You can take as many photos as you wish and help us to prepare the balloon.
All our baskets have a door so, they are accessible to all kinds of public.
The balloon flight lasts approximately 1 hour to 1 hour 30 min. The wind decides our flight path!
During the flight we make a toast with pink cava, which symbolizes the colour of the volcanoes and try a slice of coca de llardons, a delicious local cake.
The hot air balloon ride is perfect for taking aerial photos that will provide you with a memory for life.
Once back on solid ground, our ground team, who have been following our flight, pick us up in a 4×4 vehicle and take us to enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast of bread and tomato, Santa Pau haricot beans and botifarra a Catalan national dish, desserts from Cooperativa la Fageda, wine and ratafia, a local herbal liquor.
Finally, we give you a flight diploma signed by the pilot.

We continue the adventure with a three- hour 4x4 off road tour of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, passing by the volcano of Roca Negra, the look-out point at Fontpobre, Sant Martí Vell and the spectacular waterfall of Can Batlle.
