Our offer consist of a package that combines both an active tourist activity such as flights in hot air balloons and to sleep in a dream-like hotel for one night, including double room and breakfast, located at the region of Osona (Catalonia). Torre Marti Hotel. At the foot of Guilleries, Pyrenean foothills, land of highwaymen, is located this lovely noble house built in 1945 by the architect Riera Clariana. In the Torre Marti Hotel, painting, music, and literature are joined to the hotel business.

The transformation suffered by this mansion built in the most pure French Riviera style leads us into the new, private, and cozy hotel which gives us peace and calm, and invites us to have a rest and relax. The library peace, the modernistic dinning room, the rooms outstanding decoration, and also the meticulous gastronomic selection arouse the feelings of the traveler. The flight in a hot air balloon - This is an active tourist activity for individual tourists and groups. We fly every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) all year round, and during bank holidays, over the area of Vic in the Pyrenean foothills (Osona — Catalonia), 65 km. north of Barcelona.

It is a lively and energetic excursion "Active Tourism" that includes one night of accommodation in double room and breakfast, and also a flight in hot air balloon, an activity that lasts the whole morning. We begin in the early morning (from around 7.00 a.m. in summer, and around 9.00 a.m. in winter) so as to avoid the maximum effects of the sun heating the atmosphere. It consists of a flight of more than an hour, followed by a typical lunch in one of the farmhouses which are characteristic of the area. Finally, passengers receive a Diploma, signed by the pilot, certifying their participation in the flight.

This is an outline of the day's events: clients arrive at Vic by their own means, and they spend the night in the Torre Marti Hotel in Sant Julià de Vilatorta. The next day, we wait for them at a meeting point that is easy to get to. Then, we go on to our flight field where we inflate the balloon. After this, it's time for pilot and passengers to get on board the basket and the flight begins. The flight itself lasts between an hour and an hour and a half, after which we land the balloon. Once on the ground, we have to fold and pack the balloon, and when we are finished we head for the restaurant where lunch is served for all the event members and their partners. After lunch the Diplomas are handed out.
