    What to Expect
    Duration of the flight is minimum one hour and then some… and our pilots do their utmost to make it one of the most memorable hours of your life. From your pick-up at the hotel through to drop-off, time equals approximately three hours; depending on your hotel's location and the time of year, you will usually be back before 9am and will comfortably be able to join a daily excursion.

    We always take-off from different sites according to wind conditions of the day to offer the best possible route because our aim is show you more valleys possible . We also keep rotating the balloons during the flight to show our guests different angles of the route (which is changing up to the weather conditions)

    Numbers of people in the basket ranges from 12 to 16 depending on the balloon size. Even in our largest balloon there will not be more than 4 in a compartment. We respect our guests’ personal space and believe in leg-room for greatest comfort.

    Transfers with A/C minibuses are included to the flight price. We will pick you up around half an hour before sunrise at your hotel and return you after the flight.

    Insurance covers both the flight and ground handling and is included. Our passengers, pilots and third parties are covered by our policy for up to 40 Million Euro

    Breakfast is served at our office before take-off. You can have filter coffee or tea with a selection of pastries and fruit.

    Champagne (chilled) is the most important detail of completing a balloon flight for pilots and ours take it more seriously than any other pilot we know. So we serve the best champagne after each flight with a selection of cakes at landing party .Champagne is actually a ballooning tradition; since the Montgolfier brothers made the first flight in 1873 and celebrated a successful landing with champagne. During winter, we also serve mulled wine as the ambient temperature is usually below zero!

    Certificates are given as commemorative gifts. 

    Children between 6 and 12 years old can fly with their parents and will get 50% discount . Unfortunately we can not accept younger children as they can get a little bored and uncomfortable due to having to stand for an hour plus in the same place.
