PASSENGER FLIGHTS

During the festival

Enjoy the unique experience of flying in a hot-air balloon ! And what could be better than flying during the festival ?
 

Make yourself comfortable in the basket and get ready for a unique experience ! 

After taking off, all you have to do is enjoy the spectacle unfolding before you. Beneath your feet, the take-off field gets smaller and smaller until it looks like a model ! 

In front of you, the mountains of the Pays-d'Enhaut reveal their rocky cliffs. You can try to spot Mont Blanc, the Jungfrau, and even the Matterhorn when the weather is clear. 

You will be carried along by the wind to your landing spot !
