1. FLY THROUGH THE DESERT OF GORAFE
Imagine someone kneels before you, asks you the question and offers you a ring 600 meters high? This is what has happened more than once to the Glovento Sur team , a company from Granada that offers the possibility of traveling by balloon individually, in groups or, of course, as a couple.
Of course, you do not need to arrive on that special day to enjoy the experience: if the weather allows it, any day is good to fly.
“The sensation of floating is quite special,” says Miguel Juliá, who, in addition to being one of the people in charge of the company, also runs the balloons.
The desert of Gorafe, in the surroundings of Guadix, it is one of the most suitable enclaves to enjoy the heights.Where today there is an arid area there was once a lake and its sediments are now modeled by water and wind, which create a unique landscape based on gullies and spectacular mountain formations.
There is also the option to fly over the city of Granada , as well as places like Ronda or Antequera . However, “the trip through the skies of Guadix is the most recommended,” says Juliá. It also means a great opportunity to see from the air the famous cave houses of the town where, why not, you can rest a night after the balloon flight.
(Price of the trip: from 167 euros) .
