Hot air balloon places: 

Depending on the city chosen for the departure, the Organizer will accurately communicate the take-off point, where you must be 10-15 minutes before departure. After booking it will be possible to speak by phone for more details. For those leaving in Matera, a small free transport within the city area is possible by our Organizer.

Duration and Period

We leave very early in the morning for reasons related to the wind. At 6:00 am, the initial briefing begins, followed by an hour of flight, and finally breakfast. The total duration is approximately 3:00 hours. After booking, the Organizer communicates more precise times, which may depend on weather conditions.


Available places

If there is availability, even a single person can join an already created group. It is necessary to wait for confirmation from our organizer. However, a minimum of 2 people is required to start a new flight. The maximum number of participants is between 8 and 10, depending on the balloon used, so it is also possible to organize team building or experiences within incentive trips.
