Start your day in the most beautiful way by flying over the famous Lake Annecy during a hot air balloon flight that you will remember all your life! Our pilot Yannick will take you above the clouds to admire an exceptional panorama over one of the most beautiful regions of France. In a small group up to 3 people, with your friends, family or partner, you will enjoy the tranquillity of the flight and discover the lake and its surroundings from a unique point of view. And if the weather is favourable, you will even be able to see the Mont Blanc!

Take-off area
Depending on the weather conditions, we will take off from Doussard or Talloires. The take-off time, between 6 and 8 a.m., also depends on the weather conditions. We will contact you the day before your flight to give you the exact information.
Ballooning is unpredictable: the flight time is between 45min and 1.5h and, if possible, we will try to reach an altitude of 2,000m to have a panoramic view of the region, the 3 lakes (Lac du Bourget, Lac d'Annecy and Lake Geneva) and the famous Mont Blanc. But we can't guarantee that you will see all of those things!

Ride programme
- Before take-off:
We meet at the time and place specified the day before your flight by phone. After getting to know your pilot, you will be asked to help him handle the equipment and inflate the balloon to allow it to take off. After the usual briefing on safety instructions, you will take your place in the basket and the pilot will open the burners. The balloon then slowly begins to take off, allowing the magic to happen!
- During the ride:
The flight will last between 45min and 1.5h depending on the weather conditions. During this time, you will have a breathtaking view of the region around Lake Annecy, enjoying the quietness of the morning and the purity of its air. Don't forget your camera to capture this unique moment!
- After landing:
The landing will be done smoothly by your pilot: once out of the basket, you will have to help him again to fold back the 180kg of the balloon. Then, a well-deserved breakfast will be served before you are driven back to the take-off point.
