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.

First of all, 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.

Of course, each flight is unique and magical!

A question of temperature!

Secondly, a hot-air balloon flight can only take place if the winds are light and the air mass stable. What's more, it's important that there's no risk of precipitation.

Just as the temperature will be much the same in the air as it is on the ground, so you need to dress according to the expected temperature on the day of your flight.

In other words, we have to be conciliatory about the date we've set ourselves to experience this extraordinary moment.

Something to bear in mind!

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?
