Full description

Fly together with a special person and enjoy a true walk in the sky aboard a wind-borne hot-air balloon .

With an exclusive flight, you will reserve the entire basket for yourself and whoever you wish to take on board and enjoy anexclusive and romantic experience, complete with an in-flight toast.

Flying over the Itria Valley in Apulia, you will admire from above expanses of centuries-old olive trees and some of the most beautiful villages in Italy such as Cisternino, Locorotondo and Ostuni. Are you ready to go?

What we will do

You will meet the pilot near Cisternino, in the province of Brindisi. The flight will take place at dawn, when the currents and temperatures are most favourable (the pilot will confirm the meeting time and address a few days before the activity).

Once on site, you will witness the preparation of the hot-air balloon, with the spectacular flare-up that heats the air in the balloon. Then you will have a briefing on behaviour and safety rules and sit in the wicker basket, ready to take off together with the professional pilot.

The route will be decided by the wind and will be a real surprise. You will fly over the Itria Valley and the Murgia plateau, admiring the olive groves and Mediterranean vegetation from above. You will be able to catch a glimpse of the trulli of Cisternino or the white buildings of Ostuni and Locorotondo, in a typical postcard landscape of Puglia!

During the flight - lasting 40 to 60 minutes - you can toast to the experience and experience unforgettable moments. After landing, you will be given yourflight certificate and finally accompanied by the staff back to the initial meeting point.

Between preparation, flight and transfer, the activity will last about 4 hours in total.
