DEVELOPMENT OF THE ACTIVITY

The activity lasts approximately 2.5-3 hours in its entirety. Starts early in the morning, at the place set as a meeting point. We meet at dawn, between 06:30 and 07:30 hours (depending on the time of year), since balloon flights take place at dawn, which is when the atmosphere is more stable and there is less wind.

Once the participants are assembled, the pilot will give a brief explanation of the activity and we will start preparing and inflating the balloon sail, in which passengers who wish may collaborate.

With the takeoff we start the balloon ride in which we will enjoy the tranquility and silence that surrounds us in the air.

The duration of the balloon flight will be about one hour, depending on the wind conditions and the terrain overflown.

The flight height can reach 1000 meters, depending on the area.

During the balloon ride, the ground crew will follow us with the support vehicle, maintaining radio communication.

Upon landing, we will celebrate our flight with the traditional toast with cava, a small lunch in the field and the delivery of balloon flight certificates.

The operating company will confirm the departure 48 hours in advance, as they must wait until the weather forecasts are more accurate.
