Full description

Take an exclusive flight in a hot-air balloon on this tour. Admire the unique needle-shaped formations of Monserrat, one of the most spectacular landscapes in Catalonia. Finish your experience with a champagne toast. 

Start your tour early in the morning at the meeting point and head out to the flying zone, where you can help with the inflation of the balloon. Once it’s ready, take off for a fantastic hour-long flight above the monastery and the surrounding area.  

Land the balloon and board a 4WD car to the take-off area, where your guide will be waiting for you. Enjoy a bubbly glass of champagne and some snacks with your guide to celebrate your hot-air balloon ride. 

With the upgraded option, continue your visit to the 1,000-year-old Benedictine Monastery, which houses the famous La Moreneta statue (visit not guaranteed). Depending on the season and timetable, enjoy a performance of the boys' choir singing.

After finishing your sightseeing, taste the typical Catalan dessert mel i mató (cheese drizzled with honey) from one of the local farmers.

The monastery is amazing. We did not do the hot air balloon, that portion of our excursion was canceled without any reason as to why. We were given a substitute excursion and refund for the difference of the two excursions by the third party tour company. Both the horseback riding and the tour of the Monastary were well worth it. The guide Daria and Mario were excellent, and provided additional recommendations.

Recommended tour! An amazing experience. The morning hot air balloon ride was very relaxing. Seeing the landscapes from above was definitely memorable. Then visiting the Monastery in Monserrat after just makes this tour even more value for money. Ample time was given to us to explore Monserrat. The guide and driver were very accommodating to drop me off my hotel after the tour to catch my scheduled train. Thank you!

It was an awesome experience. This was our first time in the balloon. The captains made our ride a totally enjoyable. The farm lands of Spain showcases a very serene atmosphere. We had champagne towards the end of our ride. The captains also ensured to capture some memorable pictures of my family and me both on the ride and upon landing. We will cherish this forever. Highly recommended.
