Description of Hot-air balloon ride Cuenca's old town 3hCuenca, an ancient city of Arab origin, is a must see to the history and tradition that everyone who has a minimum curiosity cannot miss. Now you will be able to see, from above, the city walls, its large paved streets and Medieval constructions that are dating from centuries ago. A journey across the clouds on a hot-air balloon that will take you to a land that has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The flight will start early in the morning, at 6:30 h. We choose this time because it is the best moment to make the most of the wind gusts and the temperature of the air. Besides, this way we will make the most of the hours of daylight for us to make a photo report of the flight, that we will hand you in after the flight.
This flight will last for 60 minutes. Nevertheless, this activity will keep you busy for 3 hours approximately. You will participate in the process of assembling and collecting of the hot-air balloon (optional). This way, from above, the pilot will prepare a route that will allow you to see, from a great perspective, the city's historical centre, set deep between two valleys surrounded by nature.
During the flight, you will witness the richness that hides behind its walls. You will admire, from clod-distance, the famous "Casas Colgadas " (Hanging Houses), the mysterious "Ciudad Encantada" (a natural space that is made up of eroded rock formations), and will fly over the Puente de San Pablo bridge, very close to the sinuous Huécar river.
To celebrate this tour and the success of a trip that will be full of history and beauty, both natural and architectural. Once we land, we will make a toast all together with a glass of champagne.
