What To Expect
Your hot air balloon experience starts early in the morning with a pick-up from your hotel in Madrid or meeting your guide directly at the hot air balloon launch field in Segovia.
Just before take off you will have the opportunity to see the final stage of the balloons being inflated and help the staff as the sun rises. You will also receive a brief orientation from your guide.
Then, once everyone is in the balloon baskets and ready to fly, it's time to go!
The take-off will take place early in the morning when the winds are light and temperature is cool.
Before you notice that you're flying already, you will be peacefully floating over Segovia taking in all the stunning views that this World Heritage city can offer you, from the Segovia Alcazar to the majestic Tajo river surrounding the city and the Aqueduct, one of the bestpreserved works of Roman engineering. Your 1-hour hot air balloon flight will allow to see all that Segovia has to offer from the air.
Once the ride comes to an end you will be landing but the fun is definitely not over yet. You will be given the option to help the staff team de-inflate the balloon and toast this unforgettable experience with a glass of Spanish Cava. Then, delight yourself with a brunch made with local Spanish products.
You will be given your hot air balloon flight certificate for you to remember this unique ballooning tour and then taken back to Madrid if you select the hotel pick up and drop off option.
