Do you have summer sunrise flight from Geneva or Interlaken in June 2017 ?

Sent by Suchita on 27.04.2017

I am sorry, but Interlaken is a "no fly" for balloons. Because of all the mountains around we have no or very few landing areas and Geneva is just too far away.

We are 4 adults We are interested in hot air ballooning, of the Alps, between 7 and 9 March, 2016 We wanted to know which tours do you offer , or route, duration and cost of them. How to do the reservations and what happens if the weather is bad. Where from do you recommend to fly in order to have the best view of the mountains

Flying over the Alps is possible, but can NOT be scheduled on a certain date as you plan. Because we have to consider a few very important factors like weatehr on the north and south of the alps and the wind speed and directions we can only see a flight about 2 or 3 days in advance. For this flight you have to plan 1 1/2 days of time (stay over night in Italy before we return) and it wiill cost Euro 2100.- per person. Right now we have our winter break and start flying only at the end of march. You can check out our locations where we fly and our schedule of open flights and available seats here: https://www.die-ballonfahrer.ch/en/locations https://www.die-ballonfahrer.ch/en/info/flights-available Those flights are CHF 390.- per person.

Dear Madam/Sir, We are planning a balloon trip on summer 2015 (June/July). We are having two kids with the age 2 and 6. Is it possible to take our kids along for the Balloon ride? Do we need to pay for them? We thank you in advance for your reply. kind regards, Manu

Sent by Manu Mathew on 08.11.2014

Dear Mathew Children should be 1.20 m tall to be able to look over the basket. I am afraid but your children are to small to participate in a balloon flight. Would be to uncomfortable (you would have to hold them in your arms all the time) and to unsave when we land the balloon! Then YOU have to hold on yourself - and what about the children? Not a good idea, sorry ....

I'm going to be in Switzerland July 23-27 with my girlfriend. We're going to be staying in the Murten/Bern area, but will be able to travel during our stay. We're wanting to do a hot air balloon ride. I checked the upcoming flights posted on the website and there are some during the time we'll be in Switzerland. I'm not very familiar with the geography of Switzerland and a lot of the flight locations do not appear on google maps. Is there a specific balloon flight from July 23-27 that you would recommend reserving that would be somewhat in the vicinity of the Murten/Bern area? We are willing to travel, so please inform of where the nearest flight would be.
