Up Up and Away

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


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

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


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 you 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!


As always, once landed, you will follow the grand ballooning tradition by celebrating the 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.

It is obviously not a cheap day out but for a once in a lifetime experience, it is worth it. See more and book via the website HERE
