Hot air balloning flight Tuscany

Fast as the wind, lighter than air you will fly over the Lucca landscape, following the early morning breezes.

Lunch site meeting point: Tassignano Airport – Capannori (LU)
After meeting your pilot and the crew at the pre-arranged location you will be taken to the launch site nearby.

The pilot will brief you fully on the flight and you can assist to the assembly and to the inflation of the balloon.
When the balloon is inflated the pilot welcomes you on board for your “lighter than air“ flight.

The direction of the flight depends on the wind. Some directional control is possible by ascending or descending into air currents. The pilot can raise or lower the hot air balloon by controlling the temperature inside the balloon.

Now you can just relax and enjoy the stunning Tuscan landscape!

The road crew follows the flight with the jeep and after landing you will celebrate with local food and wine.

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

After a thorough pre-flight briefing explained by the pilot, you will be able to photograph and watch the exciting phase of the balloon inflation. When the balloon is ready for take-off you will be invited to board the basket. The route of the balloon is given by the wind, the pilot, by varying the altitude, can find other winds and therefore change the direction; from the ground the flight is followed by the crew on board the off-road vehicles.

The balloon ride lasts an hour and you will fly over woods, villages and streams even at low altitude, the balloon floats in the air and moves only pushed by the wind.
