A hot air balloon flight is an activity that can be shared between friends, family or colleagues.  From the first flame that inflates the balloon to the last breeze upon landing, balloon flights are a unique experience to remember for a lifetime, discovering the unforeseen surprises of the landscape from up on high, guided by the morning breeze.  The 1-hour flight over the city of Segovia always takes place first thing in the morning, taking advantage of the weather conditions and soft breezes of dawn.

Your premium small group will arrive at the take-off point with sufficient time to observe the inflation of the balloon and receive instructions from your pilot.  During the flight over the aqueduct, the Cathedral and the former royal palace and fortress - the Alcázar Real - the balloon may reach heights of up to 1,000 meters.  An expert pilot with years of experience will show you how the balloon works.  A ceremony will be held at the end of the flight complete with champagne, breakfast and a certificate.  This tour is an amazing chance to get a different perspective of Segovia, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, a perfect experience for those who have never flown in a balloon and for those who want to relive a previous flight.

Continuing the tour and heading into Segovia, you will discover the Roman aqueduct on a walking tour led by your official guide.  Marvel at this emblematic 1st-century monument, considered Spain's most important example of Roman-era civil engineering.  In addition, and to bring this unforgettable day to a climax, you'll see Spain's last built Gothic cathedral and the former royal palace and fortress - the Alcázar Real - built on a cliff at the confluence of two rivers near the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range.

At the end of your tour, you will return to the center of Madrid in a comfortable minibus, where your guide will be able to recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.
