Recinto Ferial La Peraleda

The Toledo hot air balloon rides will start at dawn, the starting time of the activity can vary between 7:00 and 9:00 in the morning depending on the time of year.

If you have selected the extra transfer from Madrid, we will pick you up at your hotel between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and we will go to the Recinto Ferial La Peraleda in Toledo. The sky is waiting for us!

If you come with your own vehicle, to the meeting point at the Recinto Ferial La Peraleda in Toledo, here is where we will meet.

And now that we are all here, let's get the hot air balloon ready for take-off!

Take-off of the flight

With the whole group, we'll meet our pilot. Before starting the take-off, and following the usual procedure, he will check all the equipment and when everything is ready, we will get into the basket.

Today we will get to know the Historical City of Toledo from a different perspective.

The balloon launch will be very smooth, you will hardly notice that the flight has started. The exact route of today's flight will depend entirely on the wind, as balloons cannot be directed.

Depending on its direction, our pilot will choose the exact takeoff point to fly over the city of Toledo and get the best scenario at our feet.

Toledo hot air balloon flight

We will ascend above the town, allowing us to see the entire historical centre delimited by the city and embraced by the Tajo River.

From the air, the Cathedral and the Alcazar will take on new proportions.

Toledo World Heritage City

Toledo was declared a World Heritage city in 1986 thanks to the great sample of the history of Spain that it represents, offering a Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, Jewish and Christian legacy.

Today we will see this sample of different cultures from a bird's eye view.

Hot air balloon landing

Landing is one of the most fun and exciting moments of ballooning in Toledo.

The approach flight will allow us to enjoy the landscape through the eyes of a bird, and even once we reach the ground the experience will not be over.

Toast & Picnic lunch

Flying in a hot air balloon is much more than a simple trip, around there is a tradition that will be repeated wherever you fly and anywhere in the world. After the flight, we will pick up the balloon following our pilot's instructions.

And once on the ground, toast! Once in the airfield, we will enjoy with the crew a glass of champagne and a picnic lunch with local products.

And why do we toast with cava at the end of the flight?

The first aeronauts were Jean-Francois Pil√Ętre de Roziers and the Marquis d'Arlandes. After their flight over Paris in 1783, they celebrated the happy event by toasting with champagne.

Since then, anywhere in the world where you fly in a balloon, this tradition is maintained and a toast is offered to all travelers.

Cheers!

End of the hot air balloon rides in Toledo

With a full belly after tasting different local products and a glass of cold cava in hand, we will put the finishing touch to this unique experience.

You can never forget this day: here is your air baptismal certificate to remember it.

Should we set a date for the next ride?

Return to Madrid

If you have selected the extra transfer from Madrid, once the activity is over, we will meet the driver and start our way back.

You will arrive at your accommodation in Madrid between 13:00 and 14:30. The exact time will be confirmed that day with our guide.

What to bring to Toledo hot air balloon rides

Questions & Answers

Is the launch of the hot air balloon in Toledo rough?
No, on the balloon rides in Toledo the takeoff is very quiet. Most travellers don't realise that the flight has started. When the wind blows a little more, this part of the trip is a little more hectic. In any case, it is an exciting and fun time, where there are no sudden feelings.

Is the hot air balloon flight Toledo tour available all year round?
Yes! In Toledo we can fly in a balloon all year round. Even during the winter months, as the temperature will not be an impediment to the activity. To fly, we choose the calmest days, when the wind does not exceed a certain speed, always looking for the maximum security conditions.

Is the Toledo hot air balloon rides tour suspended due to rain?
Yes, since it cannot be carried out in maximum safety conditions, the tour is suspended when there is rain, wind above 15 km/h, or fog. If this affects your booking, we will look for an alternative date to carry out the activity.

How high does the balloon reach during the flight in Toledo?
Each flight is completely different from the others, even if they always take off from the same place. Generally the maximum heights on the ground will be around 300 or 800 meters. However, there is no standard height at which balloon rides take place. The wind of each day will dictate the actions of the pilot and therefore the height we reach that day.
