Take to the clear blue skies of Alicante with this spectacular hot air balloon flight in Catral.

The balloon

The adventure begins bright and early at our meeting point: the Marjal Eco Camping Resort in Catral. Once we've met our pilot, we'll start the inflation of the balloon – a dramatic sight that’s definitely not to be missed. You can lend a hand or just watch in awe as hundreds of meters of canvas are transformed into the gigantic globe which will soon carry us heavenwards!

Before we board the basket, the pilot will explain some of the basic principles of balloon flying, and answer any questions you might have.

The flight

After some last minute weather readings, the flight begins. With the ignition of the flame the basket gently starts to rise, the earth recedes, and before long you'll find yourself gazing out at an amazing panorama, with jaw-dropping views of the Alicante countryside stretching out in every direction.

If the weather conditions allow, the balloon may reach heights of up 1000m, allowing us to see as far as the Manga del Mar Menor, as well as Elche with its famous palm tree groves, and the coastline of the Costa Blanca.

50 minutes of total peace and tranquility looking down on some of the most beautiful landscapes in Spain!

The Picnic

As always, once landed, we'll follow the grand ballooning tradition and celebrate our adventure with a refreshing toast of cava, followed by a picnic in the Hondo Natural Park, where you'll also be presented with a flying diploma.

Client comments

"Dear all, just a quick line to say thank you for my Balloon flight last week. It was a fantastic morning and one that I won't forget. I was very impressed by your professionalism and hopefully I will return next year with my sons so that they can enjoy the same experience. Once again thank you and many happy landings..."
