Hot Air Balloon Experience
This activity starts at dawn with pick up of our passengers at the meeting point. Next, we go to the launch field and start assembling the balloon. Passengers are invited to collaborate and prepare the balloon for the inflation. Once the balloon inflated, we just leave the earth for a minimum duration of 1 hour flight. The direction is given by the wind. Then we land on an appropriate field and wait for the retrieving vehicle to recover the balloon and the passengers. We come back to the launch field in 4×4, and then we celebrate the experience with a Cava toast and deliver the flying certificates signed by the pilot.
1 morning. The flight itself has an estimated duration between 1 hour and 1 hour and a half. The activity can be done during the week (a minimum of 4 participants is required), all the week-ends, all year long.
