Full description

Experience the extraordinary thrill of a hot-air balloon flight, made even more special by theenchanting atmosphere of dawn. Take flight over the wicker basket and admire the wonderful landscape of Friuli, with green hills, ancient castles and imposing Alpine mountains in the background.

Our experienced pilots will fly you in total safety, so that you can enjoy the experience in complete tranquillity, enjoying the landscape at 360 degrees and worrying only about capturing the magical moment.

Flying in a hot-air balloon is an activity you should try at least once in your life. The feeling of touching the sky with your finger, floating in the air, looking down on the world and watching the sun rise will be priceless. Get ready to climb aboard!

What we will do

We will meet in Primulacco (UD), a few kilometres from Udine, just before dawn. We will form the group and prepare the balloon together with the crew. Once the air inside the balloon has warmed up, we will be ready for take-off.

We will fly in a natural basin created by the Alps north of Udine, carried by the wind at its speed and direction. We will rise above the hills of Fagagna, where numerous medieval castles adorn the small villages on the heights. An environment where absolute serenity reigns, a natural habitat for many species of birds and wild animals that, if we are lucky, we may encounter during the flight.

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 a total of 2.5 hours, 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.
