Full description

In winter, the time with the best weather for balloon flights, we organise a wonderful balloon flight over the Dolomites starting from the Bruneck area and heading towards the sea!

This flight is very long and unusual: you fly for about three to four hours and reach altitudes of over 3,000 metres. An activity that leaves an indelible mark on all participants, it will be a unique experience impossible to forget.

Floating in the air on board the hot-air balloon, we will fly over the entire Dolomites chain, including the magnificent Tre Cime di Lavaredo, admiring them in all their splendour from a privileged perspective.

Heading towards the sea we will be able to land at different points depending on the winds, such as Venice, Treviso or Verona. Once landed, we will all go together to enjoy lunch in a typical restaurant (included in the price) to celebrate the feat we have just accomplished!

What we will do

The take-off point, usually between Bruneck and Toblach, will be chosen by the pilot according to the winds to ensure the best flight. The address of the meeting point will be communicated to you a few days before departure. Once you arrive at the take-off site, you can help the crew, if you wish, with the assembly of the balloon. This moment is very evocative and will allow you to discover how the hot-air balloon works.

We will fly over the Dolomites, aUNESCO World Heritage Site. We will sight and fly over some of the most famous peaks such as the majestic Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the Marmolada and the Sassolungo heading towards the sea. We will fly for about three to four hours until we arrive, depending on the winds, near Venice, Treviso or Verona.

Once we have landed, we will all go together to enjoy lunch in a typical restaurant to celebrate the emotions we have just shared. Once finished, you will be escorted by the ground crew back to the initial meeting point.

Given the length of the flight and the distance covered, we recommend keeping the whole day free for this experience.

Who it is aimed at

To fly in a hot-air balloon you must be at least 12 years old (minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian), be at least 130 cm tall and be in good health.

Given the heights reached (over 3,000 metres) we will carry oxygen bottles on board that can be used in case of need.

Other information

Departure times are approximate and will be confirmed by the Pilot the days before departure together with the address of the meeting point. Due to the special nature of the flight, flexibility is required: the flight will be confirmed when the weather conditions are at their best and dates may therefore change. This only makes the experience even more special!

Important: Please arrive at the meeting point 10 minutes before the chosen activity time!
