With no ties, destination and time limitations we ride the winds of the barrocal valleys in the western Algarve or the warmer breezes of the rolling hills of the Baixo Alentejo.

Whether a birthday, anniversary, important occasion or even a “must do” … we promise all our passengers a wonderful time!

Balloon flights in Portugal can be flown all year round and the most stable conditions are at sunrise.

During Winter and Autumn late afternoon flights are also possible.

1.  Launch

We meet at your allocated launch site at the agreed meeting time where passengers are invited to participate in the launch. Just as if you were flying in an aircraft the pilot will explain all the safety procedures before take-off. Once the balloon is heated, inflated and you´re in… your flight adventure starts.

2.  In the air

Once airborne you can relax and enjoy the landscape below. The duration of the flight is approximately one hour with an average distance of 5 to 20 km. The height is always at the pilots discretion to comply with local aviation procedures but as a guide it varies between 500ft and 3000ft above ground level. At times you may cross the crew and friends that are following below. For keen photographers make sure you have enough battery .

3.  Landing

Landings can be exciting and great fun as we never know where the flight will end. The pilot will take into consideration the speed and direction of the flight when he starts looking for a landing space. We do not land in crop or in fields with animals and the landing field must have access for the vehicle and trailer. You will be advised to take your landing positions as explained in safety procedures at the launch …

4.  Celebrations

It is a very special feeling to have a balloon flight and in the tradition of ballooning, once the balloon is packed and removed from the landing field, we celebrate with a glass of bubbly and with traditional local snacks. Each passenger will also be presented with a flight certificate. Please advise us if you are vegetarian so we may cater accordingly.

5.  Returning to the launch site

Some may wish to return with friends and relatives. Either way you will be returned to the launch field after the flight. The trip back in our off-road vehicles can at times take us through interesting scenic routes which may require a pit stop or two.
