Balloon festival - Balloon flight

Description

During the Château-d'Oex International Balloon Festival, when the weather conditions are favourable, the balloons take off from Château-d'Oex. After just a few minutes of flight, the view of the valley, the other balloons in flight and the most beautiful peaks is grandiose.

Suspended in the air at an altitude of 3,500 metres and in absolute calm, you can admire the entire panorama of the Alps: from Mont Blanc to the Eiger, via the Grand-Combin, the Matterhorn, the Jura, not forgetting the Lake Geneva and Fribourg regions.

The adventure ends with the presentation of a flight certificate and the sharing of a glass of friendship, after the landing and folding of the balloon. The flight lasts on average between one and one and a half hours, depending on the weather conditions. The total duration of the activity will be three to four hours.
