Flying, a dream for the human being

The freedom and the adrenaline that transmits it is impossible to be comparable with any other experience we can try and with this post, I would like to share with you the Icaro’s feel-like experience and show you some of the possibilities that we have so close to our beloved city Barcelona.

Among the different possibilities we have:


Either at the breathtaking Montserrat mountain range, 30 mins away from Barcelona, at Bagès aerodrome or at stunning Roses bay at Costa Brava, at Empuria Brava aerodrome, we can take advantage to discover a different view of these places from the skies. There are skydiving baptisms, classes and other activities related to this sport. You can try if you like it and get the AFF course.

Hot air-ballooning

Attractive aspects of ballooning are: exceptional quiet (except when the propane burners are firing), the lack of a feeling of movement, and the bird’s-eye view. Since the balloon moves with the direction of the winds, the passengers feel absolutely no wind, except for brief periods during the flight when the balloon climbs or descends into air currents of different direction or speed. Also, this is a totally family activity, since accidents are almost inexistent. You can try the ballooning in different points of Barcelona ( Odena ) and Girona. Among the different flying options you may choose the privateVIP flights, family flights, adventure balloon flights and the Pyrenees crossing flight. Fort he most adventurous ones, there are companies that organize flights to Africa plateaus or artic flights.Flying activities-globo-00

Ultralight flying

Do you dare to fly over the mountains of Montserrat as if you were a bird? And observe the incredible Maresme coast from the heights ? Flying is an experience you have to try at least once in life. A plane flight with fantastic views to enjoy is an incredible way to do it .
You alone , with your partner or friends , and even with the possibility of piloting the plane. As you want!


If you’ve ever wondered what kind of emotions you would experience leaving you out in the wind and enjoying wonderful bird views, you should try the activity of paragliding. Do not miss the opportunity to fly over the best areas of Catalonia accompanied by a monitor if needed that will handle all the techniques. You just have to relax and have a great time.

You have to follow all of the instructor guidelines, who is responsible for setting the pace and direction of motion, as go sitting on a tandem, from which you can see everything.

You do not need previous experience or a specific physical shape, you just have to want to enjoy. After testing, you’ll want to repeat in the not too distant future in another area of the region.
