Enjoy an incredible experience near Barcelona flying in the most famous Hot Air Balloon Festival in Spain.


  • Fly in the hot air balloon festival in Igualada surrounded by 50 hot air balloons
  • Experience the magic of this festival from inside and from above
  • Fly one hour in the European Balloon Festival with expert pilots
  • Enjoy a welcome picnic and cava toast after the flight


Your flight will take place early in the morning to ensure the optimal conditions and the best views above Igualada (only 40 minutes from Barcelona). Fly near Montserrat and discover the amazing landscapes of central Catalonia.   Once you get to Igualada, you will be in the heart of the festival, which has wowed spectators for 27 years. It hosts 50 balloons from all around Europe and the world and attracts more than 25,000 spectators with concerts, children’s workshops, photo contests, flight competitions and the famous Night Glow with the balloons. When you arrive, you will help to inflate the balloon and will fly surrounded by 40 other hot air balloons. Once you have landed,  partake in a cava toast with pastries and juices. Receive a flight certificate and have pictures sent to you in the mail after. Then, it's time for off-road vehicles to go back to the meeting point.  Drop off to the nearest train station is also included in the activity. We also offer accessible flights so that nobody misses out on this amazing experience.
