3. Travel Around Madrid in 80 minutes
If you have a fear of heights skip to No.4… but, if you feel like braving the altitude, the reward is well worth it. Experience the beauty of Madrid’s capital city from high above the clouds.

Greet the day with a morning hot air balloon flight, brunch with sparkling wine included!
4. Baaautfil cuisine
What’s cooking in Gredos? The local speciality made with cordero asado, is a simplistic dish that will have you coming back for seconds. It’s consists of roast lamb cooked with haricot beans and chorizo sausage, topped off with some aromatic herbs. If that isn’t making your mouth water, I don’t know what will.
