Aero-Provence offers hot air balloon rides in the rugged Verdon National Park or the rolling hills of the Luberon National Park.
Glorious sunshine and light winds make this part of southern France ideal for ballooning and there’s no better way to experience the beautiful landscape than from the air. See ancient hill-top villages, fields of lavendar, and on a clear day, the high Alps to the east.
Ballooning can be enjoyed by everyone from 6 to 76. Take a flight as an individual or celebrate a special occasion and offer the experience as a gift.
You’re in safe hands, your host, Tom, is a passionate balloonist with over 20 years of flying experience, including 5,000 hours in gliders, ultralights and hot-air balloons. He will get you acquainted with all aspects of ballooning from before take-off to the moment you land gently back on the ground.
Hot Air Balloon Flights

Balloon flights take place year-round in the early morning to take advantage of the most favourable weather conditions.
Part of the experience is to help get the equipment ready and assist with the inflation of the balloon.The balloon is unwrapped and inflated using a large fan. The air inside is then heated and once the balloon takes shape, the pilot invites you to jump aboard!
Take off is magical, you lift gently over the trees and fly over village squares from where people watch and wave. For over an hour you will fly over the Alpes de Haute-Provence region on an unplanned course drifting peacefully through the skies with the breeze.
The pilot monitors the speed and direction of the balloon throughout the flight and directs the balloon to a safe landing area. After your flight you’ll enjoy a brunch of delicious local specialities.
Tickets purchased in advance are valid for one year. The price includes the flight, insurance, the equipment, brunch and a certificate recording your flight.
20 mins 100 € | 45 mins 185 € | 1 hour 225 €
