The stages of a ballooning experience
A balloon flight over one of these sites: Chenonceaux, Saumur, Fontainebleau or Vaux-le-Vicomte OR the Pyrenees.
Be there: early in the morning or late at night! The pilot and crew will be waiting for you at the meeting point. A final wind test and you're invited to climb into the 4x4s. The adventure begins! Ready to touch the clouds?
Leave everything superfluous in the vehicles. All you need is your camera, and you'll be able to take some great pictures as a souvenir.
We've arrived at the take-off site. Here you can watch the balloon being inflated and prepared. The pilot explains the instructions. Little by little, the envelope inflates with cold air. Then, thanks to the burners, the air becomes hot and the balloon gently rises.
The balloonist invites you to climb aboard. A few strokes of the burners warm up the balloon, and you're off, gently, for about an hour's flight.
It's like being on a cloud, with a 360° view. Let yourself be amazed by the spectacle of nature. Your first flight in a hot-air balloon gives you the opportunity for a real moment of contemplation. The winds carry us and steer the balloon. The pilot controls only the ascent and descent of the balloon. There's no feeling of vertigo; you simply enjoy the moment.
The flight comes to an end. The pilot is now looking for a place to land. He gives you the landing instructions a few meters from the ground. Are you in position? Hop, you've landed!
Depending on the strength of the wind, the balloon may stay upright or lie down. In any case, wait for the pilot to invite you to do so before descending.
The crew have followed you in their 4x4 and are now meeting up with you. We all pack up the balloon before sharing your emotions over the traditional balloonist's toast!
After these little bubbles and these beautiful images in your head, it's off again for a 4x4 ride and a return to the initial rendezvous point.
Don't hesitate to share your best photos and memories with us!

Val-de-Loire Anjou Ile-de-France or Pyrenees in a hot-air balloon
Departure from the region of your choice
Chenonceaux: the small village of Chenonceaux is located in the Val-de-Loire region of France. Its chateau needs no introduction! Also known as the Château des Dames, it was remodeled during the Renaissance and is an incredible sight to behold. Built in the middle of the Cher River, the château is surrounded by a green setting of formal gardens and surrounding forests. The region also offers a unique landscape shaped by farmers and winegrowers.
Saumur: between the Centre region and Brittany, here's Anjou, a beautiful wine-growing region where the UNESCO World Heritage Loire River winds its way. We look forward to welcoming you to the commune of Saumur. The majestic château was built throughout the Middle Ages. Its princely architecture dominates the Loire and its sandbanks.
Fontainebleau or Vaux-le-Vicomte in the Ile-de-France region: you'd think this was a heavily built-up area. Yet around Fontainebleau lies the famous Fontainebleau forest, a veritable lung just a stone's throw from Paris. Vaux-le-Vicomte is not to be outdone, with its wooded landscape and GR1 hiking trails. The châteaux of Fontainebleau and Vau-le-Vicomte are magnificent examples of 17th-century architecture.
Pyrénées Orientales: Bourg Madame rises to an altitude of around 1,200 m, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. We look forward to meeting you at this geographical crossroads at the gateway to France, Catalonia and Spain. Depending on the wind conditions, we'll be waiting for you on either the French or Spanish side, to make your flight as spectacular as possible.
