The majority of summer alpine resorts offer hot air ballooning excursions nearby, so no matter where in the Alps you travel to, you’ll likely be able to arrange this unique experience.

From the Matterhorn, to Mont Blanc, and the Grand Combin to the Eiger, Jungfrau and Monch mountains, hot air ballooning in the Alps will treat you to a unique panorama. On a sunset mountain balloon ride, witness the sun disappear gradually as the sky deepens in a magnificent multi-coloured display, and lights wink on beneath you.

Hot air balloon trips in the Alps are a particularly special way to round off a summer mountain holiday. The tranquillity of the experience allows for a moment to reflect on an amazing vacation, and you’ll be able to pinpoint all of the places you’ve visited during your visit to the Alps, spotting them from high above.
