Hot Air Balloon Ride over Ibiza

Board the basket before the sun rises, and the adventure begins as the balloon slowly begins to rise.   Being on a hot air balloon is a truly otherworldly experience – as you float along, you’ll feel like you’re part of the air itself, gliding with the wind, so gently that it feels like you’re not moving at all. Gaze down at the beautiful landscape below you from the perfect vantage point to take in its beauty.   Reaching the center of the island, you’ll be able to see the entire outline of the island and the surrounding sea, the island of Formentera, and, if there are no mists on the horizon, your view will stretch to the south of Mallorca and sometimes the east of the Spanish peninsula. Celebrate this spectacular view with a glass of Spanish champagne, and partake in a “baptism” ceremony in air (for which you need to choose a nickname for yourself!). After landing, you’ll be taken to a restaurant to enjoy a well-deserved breakfast while discussing the experience, before returning to the meeting point.

The guide was very friendly, helpful and informative. We really enjoyed the trip and would definitely recommend to anyone. It does state you shouldn’t attend if a non swimmer however they did put buoyancy aids around people who weren’t very good at swimming. It’s definitely given me the bug to explore the sea more

Great experience, very laid back and relaxing. We were able to do our own thing/help ourselves to gear.
