Les Cols Pavellons
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
THE EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
- Private parking in Vol de Coloms installations.
- Coffee and pastry before the balloon ride.
- Flight between 1h. and 1h. 20 min.
- Cava and special cake during the flight.
- Hearty cooked breakfast after the landing.
- Flight diploma.
- Dinner at the Les Cols Pavellons rooms (optional).
- Accommodation and breakfast at the lodging.
- Picnic to takeaway.
We offer you to enjoy a trip from the air and rest in Les Cols Pavellons, a contemplative and sober space to rest at night.
At first light you will have the chance to fly in a hot-air balloon over the volcanoes.
Given that you will have got up so early, once at Vol de Coloms facilities we offer you a cup of coffee and a pastry as you watch us prepare the hot-air balloon.
All our baskets have a door so, they are accessible to all kinds of public.
During the ballon flight, you drift on the wind over the dormant volcanoes of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park as you sip a glass of cava and try a slice of coca de llardons, a delicious savoury local cake. You float in perfect calm and silence for around 1h 30 min, all the while enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the landscape below.
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.
LES COLS PAVELLONS
When the adventure is over, you can head off to Les Cols Pavellons. Here you will sleep in a pavilion, a glass and steel box devoid of all decoration and furniture, only a dark green futon. A back-to-nature experience.
Calm, silence, peace … the starting point for a journey to your inner self.
A glass floor floats above black rocks, which are supposed to evoke the volcanic landscapes of the Garrotxa.
If desired, there is the option of dining in the same room. However, if you prefer to go out, next to the establishment you will find a typical Catalan farmhouse, which houses a restaurant awarded with 2 Michelin stars.
Breakfast is taken sitting on a mat on the glass deck, with the breeze in the trees as background music.
The whole experience is strange, faintly unsettling and hugely stimulating. It’s not for everyone, perhaps, but certainly unique.
They also provided you with a picnic for two in a Les Cols bag – complete with a blanket – so you can go out and discover the delights of the landscape of La Garrotxa.
