What you'll do

Enjoy the breath-taking views in a hot air balloon

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 activity begins early in the morning and we will head directly to the flying zone, where you will participate to the inflation of the balloon. Once it’s ready, we will take off for an amazing hour of flight close to the Mountain and the surrounding area. At the end of the flight, a 4WD car will be waiting to pick you up and return to the flying zone, where your guide will be waiting for you to keep on with the tour. But before heading to the Monastery, toast with a glass of cava your flight in this magic lands.

Continue your visit to the famous Benedictine Monastery, dating nearly a thousand years and well-known for hosting the figure of “La Moreneta” (visit not guaranteed), the saint patron of Catalonia. Depending on season and timetable, you will have the possibility to admire the boys choir singing of the famous “Escolania de Montserrat”.

The hot air ballon ride was amazing! It happened to be the perfect day to see all that the landscape had to offer. Angel was an expert pilot with a great personality. Adria was extremely knowledgeable as our tour guide through the Monasterio de Montserrat.

Incredible experience! The views of the Catalan countryside and Montserrat mountain from 4,000 feet up were breathtaking. I was surprised at how smooth and comfortable the ride was, I'd been expecting cold wind but there was nothing of the sort. The Kon Tiki balloon flight team were clearly professionals with a long flight history, they made everyone feel safe and comfortable. The final toast with cava to celebrate the successful flight was lovely. Getting to follow up that experience with a quick trip to the monastery was a great way to round out the day. Our driver/guide for the Monastery was pleasant and happy to answer any questions.

This experience was incredible and I'd definitely recommend it. The hot air balloon ride was magical, and the pilot pointed out various mountain ranges and landmarks as we floated. The monastery tour was absolutely fascinating and the host's passion for the place was evident in the way he spoke about it. While we did get postponed due to weather, the day itself went smooth and was worth every penny.

The tour was fair. The hot air balloon ride was a great experience but it was over a town so the view below was just a bunch of rooftops 80% of the time. There was heavy fog, so I understand why we couldn’t fly in the usual place, but I would sure think there would still be a better place than where we took off at. We were running behind schedule so by the time we made it up to Montserrat we only had about an hour to look around and take in all that the monastery had to offer. Was VERY rushed through it all. There was a boys choir that was going to sing in the basilica which would have been phenomenal to hear I think, but we had to leave right before it started to get back. Overpriced for the quality in my opinion. Sounds like a hiking tour or a horseback riding tour would have been a better (and cheaper) option for more scenery.
