Please be aware of these important notes for Balloon Flights:


  • A balloon flight does not have a fixed itinerary, as it depends on atmospheric conditions.
  • Every time a flight is scheduled, the driver will choose the direction according to the safest itinerary possible, usually within a radius of 20 miles around the take-off platform.
  • The take off platform location may also change.
  • The length of the flight might change depending on weather conditions.
  • The flight will be re-confirmed the night before the scheduled departure.
  • If weather conditions are not secure, the flight might be cancelled even at the last minute. In case of this unlikely possibility, no flight charge will be applied, though ground transfer costs still apply.

Cancellation Policy:

  • There will be no penalty for cancellations of excursion bookings communicated in writing to the organization at least eight (8) days prior to the booked excursion date.
  • For cancellations between eight and two days prior to the excursion, 10% of the fare will have to be paid.
  • For cancellations from two days prior to the excursion departure, the payment of the entire amount will be due and no reimbursement will be granted.
  • No reimbursement will be granted to any client who is not at the place of departure at the time established; similarly, no reimbursement will be granted to clients who lose contact with the guide or who do not complete the excursion.

A confirmation email with links to the vouchers will be sent one business day after you place your order (Monday afternoon for orders submitted on Friday and during the weekend).

Details

During this magical excursion, you will fly over the legendary Chianti landscape with its hilltop towns, castles, valleys, mixed woodlands, and famous vineyards.



Your balloon flight starts in the early morning, just after dawn, when the wind conditions are most favorable.

You'll be welcomed by your experienced pilot. All our pilots are professionals with the Commercial Balloon Pilot License and many hundreds of hours of experience - so you are in safe hands. The pilot will introduce you to hot air ballooning and give you a full safety briefing before the inflation of the balloon. This part of your adventure takes about 30 minutes – and you can help with the operations, if you wish to.

We have lift-off! Experience the special quality of the first hours of the day as we rise into the sky. Rising smoothly towards the clouds is an almost motionless experience. Have your camera ready for amazing views of the patchwork landscape and possible wildlife sightings. The only thing breaking the silence will be the occasional roar of the burners.

This part of Tuscany is a powerful landscape, one of the most civilized rural scenes on earth. For thousands of years the land has been cultivated. Revel in the tranquility of olive groves, vineyards, and fields of corn. The olives’ silver colors and the many variegated shades of green appear as a veil over the elemental majesty and silence.

On clear days you can see Florence in the distance to the north and the Apennine mountain range in the background. To the west you can see the Elsa valley stretch into the distance. You will see the medieval cities of San Gimignano, Certaldo, and Volterra - and the sea on the horizon. To the south lie Poggibonsi, Colle Val d’Elsa, Siena, and the volcanic range of the Monte Amiata.

Once safely back on the ground, you'll receive a delicious glass of champagne to toast to your adventure in the Tuscan sky.

We will then drive you back to your hotel.
