Sleep in a Tree House on new year’s eve
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
A different new year's eve celebration. Hot air balloon ride and sleep in a treehouse.
CAN MENCIÓ PENSION
We offer you the option of sleep on December 30, in Can Menció, in the medieval town of Santa Pau. It is located in the porticoed square of the village and has 12 double rooms and 1 family room, in addition to the living room with a fireplace.
In Can Menció they do not serve dinner but if you wish, you can go to one of the restaurants in the town. There you can taste some of the typical dishes of volcanic cuisine.
This accommodation is 10 minutes far from our facilities.
In the new year's eve morning (between 7h and 8h, according to the season), you will live the experience of flying in a balloon over the volcanoes.
As you will have gotten up very early, once at the Vol de Coloms facilities, we invite you to have a coffee and some pastries, while you watch the preparation and assembly of the balloon.
All our baskets have doors, therefore, they are accessible to all types of public.
The balloon flight lasts 1h30m approximately. We are passengers of the wind and we will fly over the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa with its sleeping volcanoes. Meanwhile, we toast with cava and try a slice of coca de llardons, a delicious local cake. We contemplate the landscape from a bird's eye view, floating in the air in calm and silence.
Once the flight is over, the ground team will pick us up in a 4x4 and we will together make a good country breakfast with bread with tomato and sausage and beans from Santa Pau with sausage, wine, water, desserts from the Cooperativa la Fageda, coffees and ratafia tasting.
To finish, we deliver the flight diploma, signed by the pilot.
And then you can go to the Cabanes als arbres, an hour away, in the Massís de Les Guilleries, where you will enjoy a stay in direct contact with the tree. The experience of a night sleeping in a nest located in the framework of branches of a beautiful tree.
You can access the cabin in a fun way, using a suspension bridge and / or a vertical staircase. The cabins are rounded and have 30 m2 of surface.
To preserve the environment as much as possible, the cabins do not provide electricity or running water. Each cabin has flashlights, portable lamps, water, and a sink.
The WC is biodegradable and is recycled in composting form.
In the evening, they will bring you a special new year's eve dinner and, the next morning, they will bring you breakfast with a basket in the same cabin.
A good experience to say goodbye to the year 2020 and start 2021 in an unrepeatable way.
