Full description

Live a unique, exciting and unforgettable experience: a hot-air balloon flight in Barolo is an ever-changing and unrepeatable journey to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.

Fly over the "Langa del Barolo", a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014, famous throughout the world for its beauty and fine products: you will be able to admire from above the enchantment of the gentle slopes and medieval villages, interspersed with imposing castles. For about an hour, you will be able to enjoy a dreamlike panorama of vineyards and colourful valleys.

What we will do

We will take off amidst the vineyards that have made the fortune of these lands and you will be able to admire the beauty of their gentle slopes. For about an hour you will be able to admire a dream landscape from above, the multicoloured vineyards and our valleys.

The castle of Barolo and the rounded hills will enviously follow our hovering in the air. We will also be able to see other castles (Monforte, Serralunga, Grinzane, Cavour) located close to our take-off point and observe this beautiful corner of Piedmont from a new perspective. At the end of the trip we will toast tasting the typical local products, famous throughout the world for their goodness.

Who it is aimed at

Flying in a hot-air balloon does not involve any particular risks or contraindications. However, you must be in good health and at least 7 years of age and at least 130 cm tall. Under 14, one must be accompanied by an adult, and under 18, written parental consent is required.

In addition, due to restrictions on balloon lifting capacities, passengers over 120 kg will be subject to a surcharge.

Participants are solely responsible for ensuring that they are fit to fly. It is recommended to consult a doctor in case of surgery or medical treatment in the 2 months preceding the flight.

For safety reasons, it is not possible to fly if you are pregnant, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or unable to maintain the support position during landing, which consists of bending your knees while holding on to the landing handles. The pilot has the right to decide whether the participant is fit to fly.
