La Garrotxa is a region well-known for having one of the most important volcanic areas in Europe. That is why we have created this experience. In order to see the volcanoes from the air with the balloon flight and learn all about these formations doing a visit to the Espai Cràter.
The balloon flight starts early in the morning (between 6:30 a.m and 8:00 a.m, according to the season) when the wind is calmer and the atmosphere is cooler and more stable.
We invite you to have a coffee or juice and some pastries, while you can watch the preparation of the balloons.
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 or juice, which symbolizes the colour of the volcanoes and try a slice of coca de llardons, a delicious local cake.
Once back on solid ground, our ground team, who have been following our flight experience, pick us up in a 4×4 vehicle and take us to enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast. 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 balloon flight diploma signed by the pilot.
