Launching the balloon
Hot air balloon free flight, piloted by a licensed pilot. The only basic balloon manoeuvres are ascending and descending, but the flight route is determined by the wind direction at different altitudes.
On a good day, you can expect spectacular views from an altitude of 1000 metres! One of the attractions of ballooning is how well the pilot can read the wind, and whether or not he can descend to the pinpoint of where he wants to go! (Flight time 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the wind conditions on the day.)
