What you'll do

Visit the spectacular summit of Montserrat in a completely unique way, as you float over the Pla del Bages and the incredible needle peaks in a hot air balloon, before visiting a monastery with a thousand years' worth of stories to tell.

We begin early in the morning, heading directly to the flying zone to take part in the inflation of the balloon, before we set off on a one hour flight that takes you up close and personal with the mountain, and gives you an incredible view of the surrounding landscape.

You’ll glide serenely over one of the most spectacular landscapes in Catalonia – the unique setting of Montserrat.

At the end of the flight, a car will be waiting to pick you up and return you to the flying zone, where your guide will be waiting for you. Before we head to the Monastery, we’ll raise a toast with a glass of Cava to celebrate your flight.

Continue your visit to the famous Benedictine Monastery, dating back nearly one thousand years, and well-known for hosting the figure of “La Moreneta”, the saint patron of Catalonia. Depending on season and timetable, you may get the opportunity to witness the choir singing of the famous “Escolania de Montserrat”.

Please note that this a join a group tour. Private tours can be provided upon request.

What our travellers are saying...

The tour from start to finish was very well organized and it was the best part of our trip to Barcelona. Our tour guide Stephen was extremely friendly and accommodating, he was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable on the Monserrat and surrounding areas it was contagious. The tour isn’t cheap however it’s worth every penny you are collected via meeting point driven to the hot air balloon experience and at all times Stephen kept us informed of

I took the Hot Air Balloon and Montserrat Mountain Tour and it was great. The hot air balloon ride was very well organized and we were in the air a perfect amount of time for the full experience. Pilots and drivers were very professional and they even took some absolutely amazing photo's of us! Upon arrival we were given a little goodie bag with a juice, water, and small cookies which I thought was a very nice touch. We received a little Hot Air
