Hot Air Balloon Ride

Off the Beaten Track

Hot air balloon ride

The Loire River, Europe’s last untamed river, will unveil its secrets to you.

The Châteaux of the Loire Valley never cease to enchant visitors from around the world. Can you imagine drifting slowly over these architectural masterpieces in a hot air balloon guided by the winds?

Accompanied by experienced pilots set off for an unforgettable ride to witness the morning glow of sunrise or the ethereal silence of sunset.

Before take-off, you will see how the balloon is prepared and inflated. After landing you are invited to celebrate your experience with a glass of sparkling wine!

Balloon rides in the Loire Valley are scheduled every day in the morning and evening when the weather conditions are optimal. We recommend that you plan your flight at the beginning of your stay in order to be able to postpone it in case of bad weather conditions.

Balloon rides are subject to weather conditions and can be canceled at any time (in which case it will be rescheduled or fully reimbursed).
