Segway tour across the volcanoes
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
You stay in the welcoming and fully refurbished rustic Apartaments Santa Pau, located in the arched main square of the village of Santa Pau.
Early in the morning, you will experience the joy of a hot-air balloon flight over the only volcanoes in Catalonia.
In our installations you can enjoy a cup of coffee as you watch us prepare the balloon. For 1h 30min you will be passengers of the wind, floating in silence as we invite you to a glass of cava and a slice of the local speciality, coca de llardons, a savoury cake, and you look down over the landscape with the Pyrenees as a backdrop.
Once back on solid ground we head for the installations of Vol de Coloms, 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.
You then continue your adventure with a tour of the volcano Croscat on a Segway.
For 2h we will visit the volcano and its exposed ‘entrails’ and make various halts to enjoy the splendid panoramic views. You will be able to enjoy the contrasts in the colours of the volcanic materials – reds, oranges, browns – that make the volcano and its surrounds a site of great natural beauty. It is one of the most visited of all the volcanoes in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park; it is horseshoe-shaped and its 160-m-high cone makes it the tallest volcanic cone in the Iberian Peninsula.
Halfway through the tour we will stop to rest and have a bite to eat.
