Discover Madrid from the air and enjoy some spectacular bird’s-eye views of some of the city’s main attractions on a hot-air balloon. After collecting you from your hotel in Madrid, you will set off to Segovia. Meet your pilot at the take-off point and watch or participate in the preflight preparation. The views from the balloon of the old town surrounded by the wall and the most relevant monuments, with the view of the Sierra of Guadarrama in the background, makes this destination one of the best for our clients to enjoy their balloon flight.
The balloon will take off at 7am in summer and 8am in winter to make the most of the atmospheric stability, which is when it is safest to fly. Softly and almost magically, the balloon will climb up into the air and will carry you through the clouds for an hour.
City declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985, Segovia is considered by experts as one of the best destinations in the world to be flown by balloon. At more than 1,000 meters of altitude, the city rests on a large rock between the valleys of the rivers Eresma and Clamores, which, together with its proximity to the Sierra de Guadarrama, causes that the atmospheric conditions to fly over it are especially favorable.
This suitability for the flight, together with the spectacular monuments, its unmistakable light and the prodigious natural wealth of its surroundings, make knowing Segovia from the heights always a memorable experience. A HD video is also made of all the hot air balloon rides and then given to the passengers as a souvenir.
To complete this fascinating experience, you’ll be handed a glass of Spanish sparkling wine and you’ll enjoy a light meal (traditional food that includes Spanish ham, chorizo and cheese, plus soft drinks and water). You’ll also receive a diploma attesting the experience.
