GoMadrid, is now able to offer spectacular Hot Air Balloon Rides in Spain,
allowing you to experience panoramic vistas of some of historic Spanish cities, a bird's eye view of medieval squares and the chance to spot
from the sky some of the great monuments in Toledo, Segovia, Madrid and Guadarrama.
This really is a marvellous opportunity to make your visit to Spain a memorable, once in a lifetime occasion, moving with the wind on a relaxing and peaceful journey
with no noise apart from the quiet whisper from the burner and the sounds from the countryside below.
A typical balloon ride is as follows:
- the day begins around 08.00, depending on the season, when you will be advised where to meet the crew
- all the meteorological checks will be carried out to ensure that conditions
are perfect for your flight
- you are briefed on the flight details
- the balloon is then removed from its bag and miraculously transformed to its full majestic size after a cold inflation with a fan, and later with the burners
- when everything is ready, your hot air balloon flight begins and you say “goodbye” to terra firma for an hour or so
while enjoying the exhilarating views
- when a suitable place to land has been spotted, the descent to reality will begin as the balloon glides gently back to the ground
- during the short wait for the retrieve crew the balloon is packed away and a glass of champagne enjoyed by all, including the pilot!
Flights are available from cities near Madrid such as Segovia, Toledo and Guadarrama :-
Segovia is located just a short drive from Madrid and is a mediaeval city, like Toledo, but with a quite different feel to it, like the essence of Old Castile, noble, powerful, and a little austere. It is a World Heritage site, packed to its city walls and beyond with historic buildings. The mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to Segovia's monumental skyline, particularly in winter and spring when covered with snow.
