A night segway ride and meal
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
An experience to enjoy in the summer, from 1 June to 15 September.
Arrive in La Garrotxa in the afternoon to give yourself time to prepare for the evening’s experiences.
You stay in Santa Pau, in its arched square. And to go for your evening meal there’ll be no need to take the car – just hop on your Segway!
Your guide will show you how to navigate through the narrow streets of the medieval village and then will take you through the volcanic area to your restaurant for the evening ,El Masnou, in natural surroundings and overlooking the volcano Croscat.
You will be served a gastronomic evening meal made from the products that characterize the local volcanic cuisine.
Once dinner is over, climb back on your Segways and under the night sky head back in the starlight to Santa Pau.
On the following morning it will be time to discover the landscape from the air in a hot-air balloon flight over the volcanoes of La Garrotxa: a singular experience that allows you to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the immensity of the blue sky, the surrounding mountains, the forests and fields below. A silent trip along the invisible trails in the sky – a sensation that has be lived in person!!
