To fly safely, you must glide through the air in the most stable way possible, when heat does not cause any turbulence. These conditions are best only for a couple of hours, either early in the morning or late in the day, even in fine weather. At this time too, the light is at its best.
The balloon follows the wind which changes direction and speed according to altitude and the contours of the land.
The weather forecast provides information about the wind at different altitudes. Through his local knowledge and his experience, the pilot works with information from the local control centre to create the best possible journey.
Depending on the wind, your pilot can come up with an unforgettable trip. Like a ship’s captain following the shores of the Côtes des Vins, he will make your eyes feast on the famous vineyards of Chablis, Vougeot, Pouilly-Fuissé, enhanced by their picturesque villages and their medieval castles.
The joy of ballooning comes from changing altitude, following the contours of the land, skirting the vineyards and nudging the tops of the poplar-trees. Imagine the joy of dipping down into a small valley and then gliding above a town allowing you to appreciate magnificent views, as you rise to a thousand meters and glimpse above the mist, the summits of the Jura, the Morvan and further away, even the Mont Blanc.
We can meet you at an agreed place when you reserve and we can bring you back there.
Between April and October, early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Depending on the season, the meeting-time is between 6 and 8 am and 5 and 7 pm.
Length of the flight : from an hour to an hour and a half. We need around three hours in total which covers time to inflate the balloon, have a drink after the flight and return to your pick-up point.
You can reserve individually or in groups, a few days in advance.
For a small group we can plan a customized flight.
On the day before the flight, we will telephone you to confirm, depending on the weather forecast.
