Air balloon flight

Flying in a hot air balloon: floating in the clouds, at the height of the greatest mountains of the Alps

Flying in a hot air balloon is a strong emotion and the view is incomparable.

The Aosta Valley is the homeland of the Italian champions of the discipline, the Charbonnier family. A passion that is handed down from father to son and that, in all seasons, fills the sky of the Aosta Valley with multi-coloured balloons.

The balloons are designed, built and tested to very high reliability standards and flights always take place in optimal weather conditions. The experience of the pilots, all with specific qualifications, further guarantees safety. In a hot air balloon, in fact, you know where you are starting from, but not where you land: it depends on the whims of the wind.

Being suspended at over 2,000 metres, face to face with the highest mountains in Europe, certainly does not happen every day, but it is an experience for everyone, you don't even need special clothing, just don't suffer from vertigo.

During this upward dive into the blue of the sky, there is no perception of levitation and the silence is absolute. From this privileged observation point the gaze sweeps 360 degrees and, looking down, the eye embraces, in unusual synthesis, Aosta and its monuments and then goes as far as the entrance to the upper Aosta Valley ... landing, which awakens you from this magical adventure, bringing you back down to earth.

Among the available proposals:

  • the flight from Aosta with a tour guide, to discover historical monuments and unusual views of the capital city from above.
  • the high altitude flight in front of the spectacular Mont Blanc range, with a toast at 2,000 metres and a photo shoot on request.
