1-hour Standard Flight is the most popular balloon flight option as it’s available daily throughout the year (as long as the weather permits). This flight begins with a pick-up from your hotel about one hour before sunrise. We will travel to one of our take-off sites, depending on the wind direction and prepare the balloon for flight. The inflation takes about 20 minutes and is the perfect time to get some impressive photos of the inflation process in the early morning light. Before taking off your professional, fully licensed balloon pilot will go over the flight information, safety briefing and landing instructions… Then we’re off! The gentle gliding motion of the hot air balloon through the rock formations and up to the low clouds is a comforting sensation. With vineyards, orchards, unique architecture of ancient villages, many diverse rock formations and mountain ranges to see.
After landing we’ll celebrate our return to the ground with a glass of local champagne.
The hot air balloons can accept children over 7 years old children but unfortunately not younger than that. And please note that pregnant women also not allowed at the balloon.
