Take this exclusive flight on a Hot Air Balloon over the Montserrat Mountain and admire its unique needle shape formations, one of the most spectacular landscapes in Catalonia.

Hot Air Ballon Tour in Barcelona

The activity begins early in the morning and we will head directly to the flying zone, where you will participate to the inflation of the balloon. Once it’s ready, we will take off for an amazing hour of flight close to the Mountain and the surrounding area.

At the end of the flight, a 4WD car will be waiting to pick you up and return to the flying zone, where your guide will be waiting for you to keep on with the tour. But before heading to the Monastery, toast with a glass of cava your flight in this magic lands.

Continue your visit to the famous Benedictine Monastery, dating nearly a thousand years and well-known for hosting the figure of “La Moreneta” (visit not guaranteed), the saint patron of Catalonia. Depending on season and timetable, you will have the possibility to admire the boys choir singing of the famous “Escolania de Montserrat”.
