For those of us who make up Gijón Surf Hostel
, the sea is essential, but to get to know Asturias
from all possible perspectives is another irresistible experience which is provided by balloon rides.
These trips are considered as a complete activity in which the passengers participate in all the phases. The activity will take around 3 hours
, and you'll be involved in the following events:
The preparation at the takeoff point: while the pilot prepares everything to get the balloon ready to fly, we can ask him to let us participate in some of the tasks to learn the process of preparation in more detail.
The journey in the air: we'll spend around an hour floating, and during the flight, the course of it is not stated since it depends on the drafts at the moment of the journey. We'll also have part of our team on the ground, following our route in a vehicle to support us and meet us after landing.
The celebration: when we set foot on solid ground there will be cider or champagne to celebrate our successful flight and we'll share a picnic lunch.
In addition to taking you back to the launching point, we'll provide photos of the entire adventure.
