RAISE ABOVE THE SKIES: FLY IN BARCELONA
Have you ever dreamed of flying? I’ve always envied those people who assure that in the middle of a dream they can “decide” they can fly and hop! they start flying. But you don’t really need to train yourself to have lucid dreams to experience the sensation of floating in the air, or to enjoy the views from a bird point of view. In the city you have a bunch of opportunities to see Barcelona from the sky, some more adventurous than the other, some more physically demanding than others, but all of them rewarding.
Are you curious to know how you can reach the skies during your stay in Barcelona? Let me share with you my favorite ways to achieve it. Don’t miss today’s post.
These are our favorite Barcelona flying experiences:
Short budget but want equally outstanding views? Think no more: in Barcelona we have not one but two cable cars, both in the Hill of Montjuic (although they are not connected: it’s a 10 minutes walk from one to the other and they require different tickets). The oldest one was built for the 1929 World Fair and connects the Barceloneta beaches with the Hill of Montjuic: it consists of two old-fashioned red cabins and tickets must be bought in their ticket booth, which often gets very long lines.
AND BONUS! Here is where you can go skydiving near Barcelona:
This beach resort in the Costa Brava is the top Catalan destination for the braves that are ready to jump off a plane… with a parachute, of course! A world-class meeting point for skydivers, there are several companies there organizing tandem jumps (you with an instructor) as well as solo jumps for experienced divers. Some companies will even pick you up in Barcelona so you don’t have to find your way there. And if you don’t feel ready yet for the big jump but still want to experience how if feels, there is the Windoor Wind Tunnel where anyone can try the feel of a free jump on a completely safe environment. Even 4yo kids are allowed to try!
