DAY 4 BALLOON RIDING
The gorgeous Armenian landscapes are beautifully settled for air ballooning providing a breathtaking scenery and unique experience to the explorers. During your flight you will get a spectacular bird’s eye view of the gorgeous mountains. Each and every balloon flight is different and therefore, an adventure.
The balloon riding is designed for 4 or 8 people and a pilot. During the summer and spring the flights are carried out twice a day; in the mornings and evenings. During the day mainly in the afternoon there is a high solar activity and the uneven heating of the planet Earth may cause some strong upward and downward streams that may cause some obstacles for the flight of the balloon. In the winter you can fly at any hour during the day. The winter flights are beautiful in their own way as the air is very crisp and you can enjoy top stunning winter sights of Armenia from the above. Usually hot air balloons can fly at a height of several kilometers. Without any oxygen equipment a flight at 3,000-4,000 meters is considered to be a safe one. Our free flight plan normally takes 4-5 hours; it includes the meeting of the representatives; their transportation to the area of the flight; the process of preparing the balloon for flight; the introduction of flight conditions; the ceremony of awarding a certificate of the first flight; and the treats of champagne and sweets. The flight itself lasts for 1-1.5 hours
