What to expect

See Tuscany from above, traveling 500m in the air aboard a hot air balloon, and experience the magic flight of a lifetime. The balloon moves like a large silent sailboat, moving with the wind and giving you a sense of liberation as well as a 360-degree view of the skies. If you dare to look down, you'll see the streets, rivers, and roads of the beautiful Tuscan landscape move past, more beautiful than any painter's vision.

You can fly in every season. Take off in the early morning, just after sunrise, and enjoy the scenery from on high, when the villages around you are still asleep. Meet your fellow participants at the meeting point. The pilot will check you in at the meeting point, then he will determine the direction and the strength of the wind and establish a take off point, that is usually within 4-5 km from where you are. Get on a jeep to reach the take off point, where you will see the crew preparing for take off, mounting and inflating the balloon. You will also be given a safety instructions leaflet.

The flight is usually 40-60 minutes long, but please allow around 3.5 hours for the whole experience (it includes the check-in and take off preparation operations, a toast at the end of the flight, and check-out and landing operations). You can't determine the exact route of the balloon because the pilot can't change the direction, but only follow the wind direction. he can raise or lower the hot air balloon by controlling the temperature inside the balloon. You will reach 500 m high (1500 ft), but also fly as high as the top of the trees. You can't predict the exact point of landing! It can be some green grass or a corn field! This is why every flight is unique and it is worth sharing with your friends or family. Finish off your experience with a special breakfast with the other participants, before coming back with a jeep.
