​​​​​​​You probably already know it, but Catalonia is certainly an outstandingly beautiful region that you never get tired of visiting because, among many other reasons, its landscapes are wonderful. You may have walked, cycled or taken the train, but have you ever had the chance to admire its beauty from the air? A balloon flight is an unforgettable and original way to fly over a region to experience a moment absolutely out of time. To live and share these wonderful moments, the first thing to do is to book your Renfe-SNCF in Cooperation train tickets for Girona, the easiest and most ecological way to travel between France and Spain.

Flying over the Empordà

​The Camins de Vent company offers you the chance to fly over the Empordà, a historical region located between the Albères massif and the Gavarres, whose name comes from the municipality of Empúries, built on an ancient Greco-Roman settlement. From the air, depending on the direction of the wind, you will be able to admire the breathtaking nature of the region: the Pyrenees mountain range, the Perthus pass, the Albères massif, the Mediterranean, Cap de Creus, the Gavarres massif, but also perhaps fly over the city of Figueres. Departures are from Figueres or Verges, and you will participate in the preparation of the balloon. During the flight, which lasts about an hour and a quarter, the pilots will comment on the different areas and, to celebrate the landing, a glass of green cava and petits fours will be offered to you.

Contemplate the beauty of its natural spaces from the sky
