Elevate your senses: fly over the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees in the Province of Girona 


Elevate your senses: fly over the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees in the Province of Girona 

Discover the magic of flying over landscapes straight out of a dream on the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees in the Province of Girona. It's an invitation to experience the skies in an extraordinary fashion.

Imagine flying over landscapes where the blue of the sea merges with the green of the mountains, where each flight is an adventure and each view from the sky is an indelible memory. We invite you to take off for unique experiences: from hot air balloon flights that will offer spectacular panoramic views or parachute jumps that will make your pulse quicken to small plane flights in which you will discover the region’s beauty from a privileged perspective. 

Take off towards peace and calm  

This trip begins at a thousand meters above sea level in a hot air balloon, where the peace and calm of flying in the basket of a hot air balloon is combined with the excitement of seeing the world as you’ve never seen it before. If you’re someone who loves the peace and calm of the mountains, with Vol de Coloms you canfly over Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, a unique landscape that stands out for its ochre and earth colours. This company also features hot air balloons adapted for people with reduced mobility.   

If, on the other hand, you’re someone who feels the call of the sea, with Globus Empordà, you can admire the Bay of Roses, the Medes Islands, and the Pyrenees, a majestic collage to discover the sea with a new vista. You can also turn this experience into a unique moment, sharing a romantic hot air balloon flight with your partner. Don’t forget that all hot air balloon experiences offer a hearty breakfast upon arrival back on land.

After a peaceful morning, we have another adventure available only suitable for adrenaline lovers: a parachute jump in Empuriabrava. Whether you’re an expert or want to make your first tandem skydive, at Skydive Empuriabrava you’ll find the option that best suits you. For anyone giving it a go for the first time, there’s nothing better than a skydiving course to learn all the knowledge and skills necessary to become a skydiver. Ready to take the jump? 

Always accompanied by a professional instructor, you’ll climb to 4,000 meters high. From there, you’ll jump, enjoying the sensation of floating in the air while you marvel at the extraordinary views that spread out at your feet. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the Cap de Creus and the Gulf of Roses, places that will gradually get closer until you land. We’re certain that after the experience you’ll shout that it was the best day of your life.

Do you think those are the only options up in the friendly skies? If you’re still wanting more, we’ve left one final adventure for last that perhaps you wouldn’t have thought of: the opportunity to become a pilot for a day. Yes, you read right, you’ll be able to take the controls of a small plane! But all in good time: first you’ll receive a basic theory session on piloting a plane in which you’ll learn the fundamentals of flight and aerodynamics, you’ll learn how a small plane works and you’ll receive an introduction to being a pilot. Once you feel ready, put on your headphones and take the controls of the plane. You’ll be able to do basic flight manoeuvres and try to stay on course while you navigate the spectacular coves of the Costa Brava. 

And if you don’t want to fly so high but you still want to enjoy the sensation, you can go to the Wind Tunnel.
