Keeping the family amused during the holidays only  takes a little pre planning and what better way to do this than to book in advance a couple of fun and entertaining activities.

All of these tours have a central meeting point in Barcelona which means that these attractions can be booked by families living in the vicinity of Barcelona  as well as visitors staying in the city.

A once in a lifetime experience…Families with children over the age of 6 can experience  a Hot Air Balloon Flight over Catalonia.  Climb inside the basket and rise to 3,000 feet and enjoy panoramic views of the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean and Montserrat.

What a great experience! What I was most impressed with was that the operators were very cautious about possible wind. They are knowledgeable and loads of fun!

 Excellent. I got this Hot Air Balloon Flight as a birthday present and I have to say this was the best birthday present ever. Viewing the countryside this way is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking.

 It was a perfect day for ballooning! Josep and Tomas were the perfect pair with their experience and hospitality. Thank you!

 Breathtaking. Wonderful Staff and excellent companions. All was as expected, And a wonderful way to cook brunch. Although cloudy, the flight up and down through the clouds was surreal enveloped in white.

The meeting place for this tour is the Hard Rock Cafe Barcelona on Plaça de Catalunya.     You will need to get up early for this sunrise flight. The balloon takes off near to Montseny Natural Park. The take-off site is in Cardedeu (25 miles north of Barcelona and the nearest take-off site from the city).

Upon arrival at the take off site, you will be able to watch as the hot air balloon is inflated before going up and away!  The trip ensures panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean Sea, Montserrat, the massifs of Montseny and even Barcelona itself. Upon landing you will be served a late breakfast of a glass of champagne and toasted sandwiches after which you will be presented with your Flight Certificate.

Lots of photo opportunities at Barcelona FC’s Camp Nou football stadium…Families of any age can avoid the queues and enjoy this self guided tour at your own pace and you will also have entry to the Barcelona football museum.  This is an experience for both football fans and non football fans alike.

Really good trip. Easy to get to and access, with clear instructions. Great value for money.  Allowed to move around freely in your own time, so nothing is rushed.   Really made my weekend away complete.
