Full description

If you are looking for a fun, original, exciting activity suitable for everyone, a group hot-air balloon flight is the activity for you. Let yourself be carried away by the wind over the skies over Friuli and enjoy the beautiful landscape below.

Flying in complete safety accompanied by our expert pilots, you can look out from the wicker basket and admire the panorama of the Fagagna hills, a place where absolute serenity reigns, amidst the green meadows and the medieval castles that embellish the small villages on the heights. And in the background the Alps, whose grandeur surrounds the area, creating a natural basin that is home to numerous wild animal species.

Live the experience in complete tranquillity and enjoy the feeling of touching the sky with your finger, which only a hot-air balloon flight can provide. Be amazed by the shades of the sky at sunset and the sun disappearing behind the silhouette of the mountains.

What we will do

We will meet in Plasencis, a few kilometres from Udine. There we will form the group and help the crew prepare the balloon. As soon as the air inside the balloon has warmed up, we will be ready to take off.

We will fly carried by the wind, at its speed and direction, in the area above the hills of Fagagna, where numerous medieval castles stand. We will notice the harmony with which the gentle hills merge with the high mountains, we will breathe in the pure, uncontaminated air of those places, and if we are lucky, during the flight we will be able to encounter various birds and birds of prey that live in that area.

Upon landing, we will refit the hot air balloon together with the ground crew, who will then take us back to our starting point.

The activity lasts about two and a half hours in total, including one hour of actual flight time.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is of an easy level and suitable for everyone, from 8 years old and up. The only restrictions are for pregnant women and people with serious heart problems or limited mobility in their lower limbs.
