Balloon flight over volcanoes & stay over in Santa Pau


On weekdays we offer you the possibility of spending the night before your flight in Can Menció, in the medieval village of Santa Pau, without added cost.

This small pension, located in the arched main square of the old village, has 12 double rooms and one family room. As well, it boasts a patio with magnificent views and a salon with a real open fire. Can Menció does not serve evening meals. Nevertheless, you can dine in one of the restaurants in the village and taste the delights of the local volcanic cuisine. However, you will be able to have breakfast and afternoon tea in Can Menció in its bar and patisserie, the only such establishment in Santa Pau. From its terrace overlooking the main square, you will able to watch the world go by as you enjoy one of its excellent sandwiches or pastries.

We will meet you early in the morning at Vol de Coloms to take you up in the hot-air balloon over the volcanoes of La Garrotxa. Have a cup of coffee on us before the flight, which will last around 1h 30 min. As the balloon is carried by the wind and you contemplate a bird's eye view of the landscape, you can sip a glass of cava and try a slice of coca de llardons, a savoury local cake.

After the flight, a hearty breakfast of local products awaits you followed by the awarding of your flight certificate.
