Full description

Your adventure begins as the sun breaks the horizon, with a quick pilot briefing to set the stage. Then, you'll be escorted to the launch site, where you'll find a flurry of activity - the whir of inflator fans, the vivid hues of modern balloons, and the powerful rumble of burners. And then, it's time to take flight!

With a gentle rise, the balloon lifts into the crisp morning air, carrying you over rows of grapevines and weaving through the towering peaks of one of the world's most breathtaking valleys. Drifting peacefully above, you'll soak in the true essence of balloon travel.

Throughout the journey, your knowledgeable pilot will be your companion, offering insights into local landmarks and the valley's remarkable scenery.

These moments will be etched in your memory forever!

Returns, exchanges and cancellation

Unused Experience Vouchers can be returned within 30 days for a full refund to the original purchaser, no questions asked.

If you have any unused Experience Vouchers, you can exchange them for anything else in our marketplace, no matter when. If you choose an experience that's more expensive, you'll need to pay the difference, but if you choose one that costs less, you'll receive a credit towards your next booking.

No refunds are allowed once the experience is booked, but you can reschedule up to 48 hours before your experience, for a date within a year of the original booking. To reschedule, contact the experience provider directly. No-shows or rescheduling less than 48 hours in advance means losing the value of your experience.
