SEGWAY TOUR ACROSS THE VOLCANOES AND DINNER AT THE MASNOU RESTAURANT
To go for your evening meal there won't be a need to take the car, just hop on your Segway!

You will be served a gastronomic meal made from the products that characterize the local volcanic cuisine.
Once dinner will be over, you will come back to Santa Pau on your Segways, under the stars.
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 the fields below.
You enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry meanwhile we are preparing the hot air balloons. You can take as many photos as you wish and help us to prepare the balloon.
All our baskets have a door so, they are accessible to all kinds of public.
The balloon flight takes approximately 1 hour to 1 hour 30 min. The wind decides our flight path!
During the flight, we make a toast with pink cava, which symbolizes the colour of the volcanoes, and try a slice of coca de llardons, a delicious local cake.
The hot air balloon ride is perfect for taking aerial photos that will provide you with a memory for life.
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.
