It seems difficult to find an activity for the whole family that is exciting, but at the same time relaxing and above all very safe. But it exists and is flying high up in the sky in a hot air balloon!
There are a lot of reasons why hot air balloon rides have several advantages over other activities, for example: it is an experience suitable for all ages- children, parents and grandparents can enjoy this balloon ride smoothly, it does not require any effort or skills whatsoever. It is also an activity that helps you get away from the problems of everyday life and at the same time keeps you entertained and attentive at all times. The views are spectacular and remain etched in your memory forever. It is such an unforgettable activity and you would keep wanting to do it again soon as you’ve had the experience of one flight.
The activity is done in small groups, so you can enjoy it without stress, there are no big crowds. There is room for all participants to view the beauty of the surroundings on the front line. And when you are a in very big group several balloons would be flying at the same time so no one has to stay down waiting and bored, there’s a place in heaven for everyone! It is a very safe activity. The pre flight preparations and the flying of balloons are done with great care and performed only by experienced professionals. Flying up a
hot air balloon is a great way to overcome your fear of heights, also known as acrophobia. The ballooning usually includes photographic and video reports, plus a champagne toast after landing, as tradition dictates it.
