The European Balloon Festival in Igualada is the biggest gathering of hot air balloons in Spain and welcomes around 25,000 visitors over four days in July. It's a show, a competition and a festival in one, with more than 50 balloons taking to the air on each of the four days. Flights take place early in the morning and at dusk, when conditions are ideal and balloon rides can be booked in advance, but there's plenty to see from ground level, whether it's the different skill challenges in the competition or the magical Night Glow event, in which balloons are fired up but held down, glowing like lanterns, accompanied by a fireworks display.

When we travel, we want to connect with new destinations without having to disconnect from our familiar surroundings.
