But believe us – even if you need to step out of your comfort zone – they will be enriching experiences. Let’s discover them together!
Stand up paddleboard
The last few years, this water sport has been pretty popular. It’s a variation of surfing where you stand on the water surface, using a large surf board and a paddle. Since balance and core strength is the key to success, it’s best to do it in calm waters. Looking for a challenge? Then head for the sea and waves to test your balancing skills!

Hot air balloon flight
You’ve seen Barcelona from the ground now. But what about from the sky? Ballooning is a very unusual experience that should definitely be on your bucket list. You’ll get to see panoramic views of Catalonia’s landscape from a bird’s-eye view while experiencing the sensation of flying. If that’s not an amazing outdoor activity, we don’t know what is.

Don’t underestimate cable wakeboarding. For this developing water-skiing sport, you need every single muscle in your body. However, it is one of the easiest and safest water sports to master so don’t worry too much. This sport is usually done using a boat but nowadays there are also special parks such as Olympic Cable Park. There, the boat is exchanged for a mechanical cable-towing installation. At least as much fun!
