Full description

Experience the thrill of floating in the air aboard a hot-air balloon and take off from Masino Castle in Canavese, to admire this splendid architectural work surrounded by greenery from above.

Let yourself be carried away by the wind, enjoy the sense of freedom of flight and admire the colours of the sky at sunset from a truly unique vantage point.

The currents will choose the direction of your flight, but you are guaranteed a spectacular view of the Piedmont hills, with the Alps on the horizon. It will be an unforgettable experience!

What we will do

The meeting point is near Masino Castle, in the municipality of Caravino in the province of Turin. Here we will meet the pilot and watch the balloon inflate. Then we will have a briefing on behaviour and safety rules and finally take our place in the wicker basket, ready for take-off.

From the top of the hot-air balloon we will admire the 19th-century castle of Masino, a FAI property, set in a large park in a dominant position among the Canavese hills. On the horizon we will glimpse the reliefs of the Serra d'Ivrea and, further on, the Alps and Monviso.

The duration of the flight is about an hour and the route will be determined solely by the direction of the wind. After landing, the ground crew will take us back to the starting point where we will be given acertificate of participation.

The experience will last about three hours in total.
