Hot air ballooning in the French AlpsWritten by admin on June 15th, 2009
Take a hot air balloon trip and enjoy the stunning Alps landscape and most particularly the Mont Blanc from a bird’s eye view.
Discover from above the breathtaking and unique Mont Blanc Country. Drift along with the wind through exceptional angles, and admire the stunning Avaris range dressed with a bright orange veil as the sun rises and succumb to the majestic Mont Blanc and its beautiful snow coat.
Live a truly magical and peaceful moment. Feel nature’s strength and splendour. During winters as summers, this experience is wonderful and unforgettable.
Course of the experience :
Balloon trip duration: one hour. Experience full duration: 4 to 5 hours.
Balloon trips are organised early in the morning, one to two hours after sunrise. Summer hours – mornings 7h30/8h00; Winter – mornings 8h30/9h00.
