Floating high above the land when the burners are turned off, the only sound is the gentle creaking of the basket swaying in the breeze. Sure, there are many exciting activities to enjoy during a holiday in Torrevieja, but for peace and tranquillity, nothing beats soaring with the eagles on a hot air balloon flight.

Hot Air Balloon Flight Itinerary
The excursion takes place in the early morning when the air is still fresh and cool. Participants can lend a hand inflating the balloon or just take the chance to anticipate the thrill to come. Before boarding your pilot will give a brief talk on the basics of balloon flying. Then it’s up, up and away gradually ascending into the sky. Weather permitting, the balloon can reach heights of 1,000 metres. From here the grandeur of the coastline and Elche’s famous palm groves are a sight to behold. After 50 minutes of flying time the balloon begins its descent. Upon landing it’s time for a glass of cava and a picnic in the Hondo Natural Park. Price per person is 140€.
