Rise up gently from the ground and discover Tuscany from an alternative perspective! We are pleased to be in a “position” to offer you Tuscany from another perspective, a privileged point of view: a Hot-Air Balloon.
This unique experience will enable you to rise gently from the ground, be borne along by a gentle breeze above the Tuscan landscape, discover from a bird’s-eye point of view the historical towns and splendid vineyards which have in part created the legend of this breath-taking terrain. This is power of imagination – which comes true!
You can fly like the wind in a mode which preserves the romanticism and adventure spirit of the art of flying.
Enjoy the Pilot-dance
The experience starts from the inflation of the balloon at ground level, a moment which has all the anticipation of flying…defined by one observer “the Pilot-dance”. Once the balloon is ready, it’s time to jump up into the basket and prepare one’s camera…We fly in the early morning (7:00 AM) just after dawn. The inflation takes about 45 minutes, and the flight approximately 1 hour depending on wind and weather conditions. After landing we load the balloon back onto the retrieving vehicles trailer which follows the balloon throughout the flight. Once the balloon is packed away we move on to enjoy a marvellous champagne breakfast with local produce. After breakfast we drive back to the launch field. The whole adventure takes about three and a half hours.Rides last from 45 minutes to one and a half hours, during which, thanks also to smooth flying conditions, you may take the opportunity to shoot wonderful images of exclusively Tuscan landscape: admire the infamous “red-roofed” towns and follow the course of bashful wild animals taking “flight” in the fields below… The first light of dawn creates the magic frame for the scene your eyes are observing…
Land and celebrate
While flying above you can learn about the terrain and its history from the Pilot’s (tall) tales. At the end of the tour, having had a smooth landing, and following in the tradition of Hot Air Balloon fans, the success of the flight shall be celebrated with a glass of champagne and breakfast!
