Balloon flight over Aranjuez
Discover the magic of flying in a balloon. A different form of aerial transport, a great adventure from start to finish, suitable for all ages. Enjoy the peace and quiet of floating gently. A safe and unique experience that anyone who has experienced it will remember forever.
Ballooning in Aranjuez is a return to the origins of the history of aviation, but with today's technical advances and the safety established by Civil Aviation. When you take a hot-air balloon ride over Aranjuez you can enjoy landscapes that have been part of the history of Spain. You can find the Royal Palace built and promoted in the 16th and 18th century, surrounded by squares, amazing gardens such as the Parterre, the Island, its outstanding fountains such as Venus, Bacchus, Hercules, Antaeus and Ceres, among others. You can also find the Prince's Garden, which includes wonderful views of the Chinesque Pond and the Casa del Labrador. From the balloon you will have the opportunity to have a unique point of view to recognize the Royal Site and Villa of Aranjuez from the air, at speeds of 4 or 5 km/h, practically at the same speed you have when walking on foot. For all these reasons, choose this hot-air balloon flight and contemplate the cultural landscape of Aranjuez from the air.
