Full description
Start your journey with a pick-up from your hotel at 6am. Relax on your transfer to the launch site in a private vehicle with your friendly and professional guide. Learn about the safety instructions for balloon flight from your experienced pilot before takeoff. 

Please note that due to the montainous area where San Sebastian is located, heading to the South is necessary to reach flat areas where a Balloon can fly safely. Although the exact taking off area depends on reasons like the weather, it takes approximately 1,5 hours by car to reach the taking off area from San Sebastian.

Fly above vineyards, wine cellars, and mountains during your 1-hour ride. After landing, sit back and relax as you're driven back to your hotel. Souvenir photos will be available for purchase after landing.
