If you have ever wondered what Jules Verne’s Phileas Fogg would feel on board of his hot air balloon, you can experience it yourself while enjoying the wonderful views of Catalonia with Globus Empordà.
Everyone who tried this experience will remember it forever and want to go back in time to live it again: “Fantastic”, Joel, TripAdvisor; “Spectacular”, Tania, TripAdvisor.
Globus Empordà proposes two different balloon tour: Baix Empordà and Alt Empordà.
Come up in the air for a unique tour of Catalonia!
Before the departure, the balloon needs to be inflated, to do so, you will meet your pilot early in the morning to assist him in this step and ask him any question that comes to your mind. After about half an hour of inflation, you are ready to go!
If you choose to fly over Baix Empordà, you will enjoy breathtaking views such as the Mediterranean coast, the Costa Brava, the Medes Islands, the Montgri castle, and the Gulf of Roses, with its beaches, its ruins and its archeological gems.
When flying over Alt Empordà, you can admire, among others, the Gulf of Roses as well but also charming and typical little towns of Catalonia, the Cap de Creus, and stunning landscapes.
The flight, as well for Baix Empordà as for Alt Empordà lasts between an hour and an hour and a half depending on the weather conditions. As one can never know in advance where a hot-air balloon is going to land, to avoid you to walk for half an hour, a 4×4 will follow you through your tour to pick you up when it is over and bring you back to the starting point.
To recover from your emotions and celebrate your achievement, a lunch with Champagne is included in the price. You will also receive a photo magnet souvenir as a proof of this wonderful experience.
If you want to give a balloon tour for a special occasion (birthday, Valentine’s day, wedding…) Globus Empordà proposes a small puzzle for the recipient to solve, an original way to keep the mystery a bit longer!
For more privacy with your significant other, the company also proposes flights only for couples during weekdays.
Packages such as cycling tours are also available.
