Participate in activities with static balloons

Free baptism of “tethered hot air balloon”

What is a tethered hot air balloon baptism? It is a hot air balloon tied to the ground that operates in a perimeter for a certain period of time. The hot air balloon is held in place by means of ropes fixed to points (anchors) on the ground, preventing deviations or significant displacements. This activity allows passengers to experience a sensation similar to that experienced in a "free flight" in a balloon, that is, the real balloon flight, without moorings to the ground at the whim of the wind.

This activity, limited to a maximum participation of between 300 and 400 people, has an average duration of 5 minutes. The realization of these activities is subject to verification of the weather conditions indicated in this link, MANDATORY CONSULTATION.

How does participation work?

Online registration sold out. Additional registration phase takes place in person from April 17th at the Tourist Office of each municipality (with limited spaces).

Children aged 5 and over can participate. Children between 5 and 12 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult. People with reduced mobility may have difficulty accessing the inside of the hot air balloon basket.
