Hot-air balloon rides
Up and away into the friendly skies of Touraine! The Loire Valley is one of France's major hot-air balloon centres: this is arguably the best way to take in the breathtaking views of the region! High up in the basket, you will float past castles such as Chenonceau, Azay-le-Rideau, Villandry and Amboise!
Few things to know about balloon rides
Take-offs are usually scheduled in the morning or in the late afternoon, when weather conditions are the best. Depending on the company you choose, the starting points vary but fantastic views are guaranteed, above fields, vineyards, forests or rivers like... the Loire! Remember that no two hot-air balloon trips are alike as the winds are mainly responsible for determining the flight direction. Another advantage: flights will not make you feel dizzy.
