Air Ballooning is now a well-established tradition in the Loire Valley, as the view of the chateaux from the sky is truly unbelievable. You can choose between an early morning departure or a late afternoon ride. Appreciate the silence while flying over some magnificent landscapes rich with lush forests, vineyards and the last wild river in Europe, the Loire.
