How to experience hot-air ballooning
Flying in a hot-air balloon is a fantastic experience to be had at least once in your life.
You can experience this moment in summer with its radiant weather and lush nature, or in autumn with the wonderful colors of the season. And it's also possible in winter with immaculate, crystal-clear snow. Every flight is unique and magical!
A hot-air balloon flight can only take place if the winds are light, the air mass stable and there's no risk of precipitation. The temperature will be much the same in the air as it is on the ground, so it's important to dress according to the weather forecast for the day of your flight, and to be conciliatory about the date we've set for ourselves to experience this extraordinary moment.
A gondola is a small space, so bring as little as possible, but don't forget your camera and your ticket!
Of course, the cost of a flight is considerable. But the unique experience is well worth the price. Sharing the moment with friends also helps keep costs down!
So, will it be on your To Do List for next year?
