Spain to the rhythm of the wind
Flying over Spain in a hot-air balloon is an adventure not to be missed. The whole process of inflating, flying and landing the balloon will make this an experience you will never forget. Come and discover a whole country from this exceptional viewing point. Come and enjoy a world of sensation and pleasure in the wind. Do not miss the chance to have a bird’s eye view of the sun coming up over the Mediterranean and to take marvellous aerial view photos of the Pyrenees, while enjoying the serenity and pleasure of floating to the rhythm of the wind.
From the beginnings of time mankind has looked to the sky, fascinated by its beauty, trying to think how to fly as freely as birds and to travel as naturally as the wind. What we offer is the chance to feel that indescribable sensation of complete freedom. Despite the very fast times in which we live, hot-air balloons still offer their changeless sensation of serenity and the spirit of adventure.
Start the adventure
All you have to do is relax and feel the direct, permanent touch of nature. The sensation of floating in the air is an adventure in itself, and even more so when you have the chance during your flight to enjoy the beauty and contrasts of this landscape, which are an essential feature of any excursion in the air. After the experience of flying on board one of these incredibly fun balloons, you are sure want to come back to see us again. The sensation of flying majestically over a land coloured by sunrays, swayed only by the wind, is one you will not easily forget.
Our take-off point is in the centre of Spain, near to Madrid, from where you will be able to see the historic architecture of the cities of Segovia, Aranjuez and Toledo from the sky. If you prefer, we can also make higher altitude flights in the Pyrenees, contemplating all of the beauty of the villages and mountains. On clear days, we can even make out the distant sea and the city of Barcelona. On the other side of the mountain range, we will enjoy views of Navarre’s surprising landscapes. If you like the sea, we suggest a trip along the Costa Blanca coastline, to enjoy magical Mediterranean sunrises and sunsets seen from the sky.
Our hot-air balloon is also available for trips over other landscapes that are equally surprising when seen from the air, like crossing over the Los Monegros desert area in Aragón, or going right around Spain in a balloon.
In Spain everything is possible
The choice is yours. Here, everything is possible, from flights that sweep over the ground to climbs of more than three thousand metres. In some cases, you can also choose your own take-off location, as long as it is in an unrestricted, free-flight zone. Weather conditions permitting, you can participate in organized flights. These can be full-day trips or short trips of between ten and twenty kilometres, depending on wind strength, which last something over an hour.
Although the landing place is always something of a mystery, the pilot will always choose an area accessible to the support vehicle that will be monitoring the balloon’s flight constantly from land. The mission of the pilot, and of the whole support team, will be to offer maximum excitement within strict safety parameters, offering travellers a unique experience, with all the elements needed for an unforgettable adventure.
Landing will be exciting, at a random location determined by the wind. We will gather the balloon, make a toast with cava sparkling wine, and you will receive your flight diploma and become one of a very special class of men and women who have made a dream come true: to fly.
