Every morning, our pilots choose the best take-off site according to the wind speed and direction to show more valleys, landmarks, cave dwellings, fairy chimneys to maximize your balloon adventure.
Our guests may have a light breakfast (pastry, cake, hot drinks, coffee, juices) at our meeting point office.
