What to expectBallooning is the oldest form of flying. Since the very first flights in 1783, the hot air balloon has remained virtually unchanged, although its technology and materials have, of course, like the skills of its pilots, advanced significantly with the times. Today, riding a balloon is no longer a flight into the unknown, but, quite the contrary, it is now one of the safest ways of flying.
You will board your hot air balloon and fly over the Guadarrama Regional Park area with superb views to the Madrid skyline at one side and Madrid mountains on the other side. The peaceful countryside area is perfect for balloon flying, and you are going to enjoy a unique relaxing feeling, free of fears or shocking impressions, cradled in nature’s light and sounds as dawn breaks.
Your hot air balloon ride begins early in the morning, about 8:30 am in the winter, and 7:30 am in the summer when the air and winds are most stable. The whole activity takes approximately 3 hours, including inflating the ballon, boarding, flying (about an hour), landing, packing the ballon, and taking you back to your launch field.
End your hot air balloon ride with a traditional breakfast and be awarded a Balloon Flight Certificate with a traditional Cava toast following the aeronautical tradition.
