Come and experience all the magic of a flight in a hot-air balloon

To see the beautiful landscapes of Touraine and some of the Loire châteaux, there’s nothing like a trip through the air with Art Montgolfières! You can experience the incredible sensation of touching the clouds and see the sun rise or set. A great gift idea for Christmas!

The different stages in a hot-air balloon flight

The flights take place at dawn or dusk from April to October. You will be picked up in a 4X4 at the meeting point and driven to the take-off site. You can then go behind the scenes and see the equipment being prepared and even help to blow up the balloon! You will see how a hot-air balloon works. Then you will take off with peace of mind and experience some breathtaking scenery from above.

When the air in the balloon heats up, the balloon starts to rise slowly, followed by the basket. The pilot will then invite you to get on board. After a gentle take-off, you set off on a magical and unforgettable adventure!

One hour later, it’s time to get ready for landing. The pilot proposes the traditional “Aeronaut Toast” and gives you your flight certificate.

Each flight is a unique and special experience…

With its team of experienced professionals Art Montgolfières has been organising hot-air balloon flights in the region for over 15 years. You will see France like never before: endless landscapes, famous monuments, all sorts of animals and plants…

Have you always dreamed of going up in a hot-air balloon but never dared to try? Rest assured, you won’t suffer from vertigo. Quite the reverse. Up in the air you will experience a feeling of well-being and peace of mind that only a flight in a hot-air balloon can give you. With the wind and the fire in the burner as the only sounds, a ride in a hot-air balloon is ideal to unwind and take a welcome break from day-to-day stress.

A great gift idea

A first flight in a hot-air balloon is THE big surprise, whether you are on your own, with your loved one, friends or family! You can share the surprise and delight of rising into the air and enjoying an unforgettable experience.

And for more privacy, you can reserve the basket and make the most of a customised trip with the pilot: a VIP flight, leaving from the most prestigious Loire châteaux (Chenonceau, Amboise, Cheverny, Chaumont-sur-Loire, Loches, Saumur, Chinon, etc.).
