Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depart from your centrally located Granada hotel in an air-conditioned minivan and travel to the launch site located just outside of town. Greet your guide and listen to a comprehensive safety briefing before climbing into your balloon’s sturdy basket.

Feel your excitement surge as the gas flame roars into life and inflates the bright balloon. Ascend to the skies and gaze down at the spectacular sprawl of Granada, capturing photographs of the rugged Sierra Nevada Mountains and the rose-tinted hue of the palace.

Listen as your guide regales you with tales of history and legend, and absorb the birds-eye beauty of charming neighborhood Abaicín. After approximately 1 hour in the air, gently descend to dry land then stroll to a nearby café to enjoy a flavorsome and fulfilling Spanish lunch. Feast upon cured meats; creamy cheese; freshly baked bread; and orange juice then toast your unforgettable experience with a glass of sparkling cava.

Return to your minivan and bid farewell to your guide and group on arrival at your Granada hotel.

Please note: the duration of your hot-air balloon ride varies according to wind conditions.

We ended up flying from Guadix due to weather conditions. The flight was amazing with breathtaking views. The pilot was very skilled and experienced and support staff were good too. Definitely worth doing and celebratory breakfast after was fun. The firm emailed photos and videos afterwards as well.

A brilliant trip! In fact, the balloon ride was in Cordoba, not Granada... No matter: we were well-looked after, from pick-up to drop-off. The balloon team from Gloobo were excellent, and although most on the trip were Spanish, our pilot spoke fair English and took the trouble to include us in everything that was happening. It helped that we had perfect weather, but the trip exceeded our expectations, with fabulous views of old Cordoba and of the Andalucian countryside. Great fun, and highly recommended.

Can't recommend this trip highly enough. Excellent communication pre-trip, punctual pick up as arranged and friendly staff on the trip. Miguel, my pilot spoke English as well as Spanish. Safety was paramount, with weather being the main concern and a full safety briefing before we set off. The views are beautiful over Granada and everyone gets to see everything, as Miguel skillfully spun the balloon gently throughout the trip. Exact course and duration of the trip depends on the wind speed and direction, but I was lucky enough to be in the air for almost an hour and had a soft landing. Breakfast is at a local hotel restaurant and was standard Spanish fare. Great start to the morning!

Do to weather we wound up taking our balloon ride from Seville which was our next stop. Our guide stayed in constant contact with us and made the change of location very easy. The ride was amazing. It even impressed my children who are in their 20's. The crew made it so much fun! HIGHLY recoomend.
