It is the perfect day trip from Barcelona. You start the day fairly early with a train journey to the town of Vic where you are picked up and taken to the launch site. From then on it’s all about enjoying the most exhilarating way to see the Catalan landscape. And remember your camera! From 3000m, the views are spectacular; something you will be sure to want photos of when you get home.
Your time in the air depends on the flights you choose (see below) but typically is around 90 minutes. Afterwards your guides treat you to a complementary lunch, traditional Catalan style, where you will have the chance to share the experience with your fellow passengers and you will be given certificates as proof for your friends of your daredevil status.
