Art Nouveau Olot
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
In the afternoon you will have a guided visit to the city centre to contemplate the city’s most important Art Nouveau houses built during a period when Olot was alive with intellectual debate. Then, you continue on to Passeig de Barcelona and the Eixample Malagrida New Town, a good example of a garden city.
In the evening, your evening meal will be in the restaurant Quinta Justa, where a truly ‘symphonic’ menu and a blend of musical notes reflect this restaurant’s philosophy of proximity and attention to detail. You stay and have breakfast in the 3-star Hotel Estació whose modern and comfortable rooms overlook the river Fluvià.
The following morning you will have to get up early as a hot-air balloon flight over the volcanoes of La Garrotxa awaits you. As we fly, we invite you to sip a glass of cava and try a slice of coca de llardons, a savoury, cake-like local speciality.
Once the flight is over, our ground team (who will have followed the balloons throughout the flight) will pick you up in their 4x4 vehicles and take you back to the Vol de Coloms installations, open for the exclusive use of our passengers and their companions, for a hearty breakfast of bread and tomato, charcuterie, Santa Pau haricot beans and botifarra (Catalan sausage), desserts from Cooperativa La Fageda, coffee and a glass of ratafia, a local herbal liquor.
