Montserrat Hot-Air Balloon Ride & Monastery Tour

Summary

Enjoy the breathtaking views in a hot air balloon while you fly over the Pla del Bages observing the magnificent view of the unique shape of Montserrat Mountain, near Barcelona. Visit the Monastery of Montserrat and learn all its history that dates almost a thousand years.

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

    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 the areas we passed on the way. We then flew in the hot air balloon with the Kon Tiki team who again were extremely professional and after landing enjoyed a small snack and glass of cava. I should add I am afraid of heights but at no time felt nervous in the basket, the flight graduated into the air so slowly and smoothly I felt very comfortable. The team emailed us photos from the ballon ride which was a nice surprise. We continued then to the Monserrat which is an unforgettable experience hidden in the surrounding mountains. We are a young couple who are not hugely religious but this tour was our favorite part of week.

    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 Balloon passport at the end of the trip signed by our pilot and had a Cava toast. Afterwards, we were driven up to the Monastery and were provided with a mini tour.
