Hot air balloon flight in the Lucca area

Quick as the wind, lighter than air you will fly low over the Lucchese countryside following the early morning breezes.

Your experience begins at the meeting place where you will meet your pilot, ground crew, and other passengers.

After a thorough pre-flight briefing explained by the pilot you will be able to photograph and witness the exciting phase of balloon inflation. When the hot air balloon is ready for takeoff you will be invited to board the basket. The course of the hot air balloon is given by the wind; the pilot, by varying the altitude, can find other winds and thus change the direction; from the ground, the flight is followed by the crew aboard the all-terrain vehicles.

The hot air balloon crossing takes an hour, and you will also fly over forests, villages and waterways at low altitude; the balloon floats in the air and moves propelled only by the wind.

Immediately after landing, passengers will participate in a toast with a tasting of traditional Tuscan farm products and taste some of the typical products of the area they have just visited in flight.

The experience can be activated for groups of at least 10 people. For smaller groups, departure and flight are moved to Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa
